Nick Cannon announces death of his last child, Zen

December 7, 2021

American actor and TV personality, Nick Cannon has announced that his youngest child, Zen, is dead. 

The actor made the announcement on The Nick Cannon Show, and further revealed that 5-month-old Zen died of brain cancer. 

Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed Zen back in June, making him Cannon’s seventh child. On his show, the father of seven tearfully shared how he and his family discovered Zen was battling Hydrocephalus, a form of brain cancer. 

He said; 

“I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out. 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. But I wanted to take him to the doctor for his sinus and breathing. We thought it would be routine.” 

The family soon discovered it wasn’t going to be a routine visit as Zen had fluid building in his head and it was a malignant tumor. The baby had brain surgery and a shunt to drain the fluid. Things however took a turn for the worse at Thanksgiving. 

Cannon added; 

“This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and went to the ocean with him and Alyssa and then I had to fly back to New York for the show,” he shared, breaking down in tears. “I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen.”

Zen was the 4th of Nick’s kids born in the last year and a half, twins Zillion and Zion were born in June and his daughter, Powerful, last December.
