Here's What Nick Cannon Had To Say About Alyssa Scott Following The Death Of Their Son

Nick Cannon made a shocking and heartbreaking announcement when he revealed that his youngest son, Zen, had tragically passed away. Cannon, who shared the 5-month-old with Alyssa Scott, addressed his grief during an episode of his talk show, "The Nick Cannon Show" (via Entertainment Tonight). 

"I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out," he said. "He had this interesting breathing and by the time he was two months, I noticed he had this nice sized head too — a Cannon head. We didn't think anything of it." Cannon shared that they took Zen to the doctor but figured it would be a routine visit.

"Ultimately, it was cancer in the brain and the tumor began to grow a lot faster," continued the "Masked Singer" host. "This weekend I made a valid effort to spend the most quality time I could spend with Zen. We woke up on Sunday — I got to spend the weekend with him — and I woke up on Sunday and was like, 'I feel like I want to go to the water.' We got a chance to go to the ocean."

Now, Cannon is speaking out about Zen's mother during this difficult time.
