Nick Cannon, who was married for eight years to Mariah Carey, and his partner, Alyssa Scott, experience the worst tragedy for parents: their five-month-old baby, Zen, has died of a type of brain cancer. The Masked Singer host, who has seven children, has announced the tragic news on The Nick Cannon Show, his talk show. Little Zen passed away last weekend.
The rapper and actor has given details of what happened: “I always noticed that he had a cough and I wanted to take him for review. He had a peculiar way of breathing.” According to his account, during the medical check-up they detected that the little boy had hydrocephalus and that he needed urgent surgery to place a valve. “We were hopeful at that time and we continued forward. He was still playing with his brothers and sisters, and I took every opportunity to hug him,” he detailed very emotionally.
Cannon, who has continued with his explanation through tears, has said that the operation to drain the fluid from the tumor was not enough and that unfortunately everything began to get worse after Thanksgiving. “That weekend I made an effort to spend as much time as possible with my son Zen. We got up on Sunday and Alyssa and I went with him to the sea. Then I went back to New York for the show… But at the airport I got a call to go back with him, “he said. And he was emotional when he told how the last hug with his little one was: “I turned around and not only could we see the sunrise, but we could also see the sunset,” added Cannon.

Alyss, who has shared several videos and photographs of little Zen on her social networks, has not yet commented on the terrible event, but Nick has said that she has always been a very strong woman. “She has never argued or been angry, she has been excited when she had to, but she has also always been the best mother and continues to be the best mother possible,” said the rapper.
The singer, who has dedicated the program to his son and has expressed that he was a child who was always smiling and had a “beautiful spirit”, also wanted to make an important reflection on the family and the time we should spend with them: “You never know what that someone is going through, hug your people, hug your family, kiss them, tell them you love them,” he advised.
Nick Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed Zen, their first child together, last June. The little boy was the seventh child of the actor, who married Mariah Carey in 2008. With her he had twins Monroe and Moroccan. In addition, the comedian is also the father of a boy and a girl, the result of his relationship with the model Brittany Bell, Golden Salgon and Powerful Queen, the last one born in December 2020. And the same year he had two twins with DJ Abby from the Rose whom they called Zion and Zillion.
