Nick Cannon and his partner Alyssa Scott have been through the unthinkable, and now Scott has shared a heartbreaking final video of their son…
This comes following the tragic news Cannon shared about his son on The Nick Cannon Show.
Here’s the full story…
Now, Nick Cannon is notorious for a lot of things.
Throughout his career, he’s managed to try out many different stints which has earned him a pretty impressive resume.
From hosting, to acting, to stand-up gigs… the man seems to have done it all.
But there’s something else he’s pretty well known for…
And that’s having a lot of kids.
And the whole thing’s a little complicated.
His love life has certainly been a rollercoaster.
And which partner to better to start off with than the Queen of Pop herself, Mariah Carey.
Cannon’s relationship with Carey was very public, with both of them being extremely loved-up throughout their time together.
They even have twins together, Monroe and Moroccan, aged ten.
But in 2012, the couple called it quits in what Carey described to be a “tough” split…
Wherein both parties spent a lot of time hashing things out with divorce lawyers.
But thankfully, they remained friends in the end.
Cannon quickly moved on, being linked with women such as Jessica White and Brittany Bell.
And the comedian went on to have 2 children with the latter, a son called Golden and very recently, a daughter named Powerful Queen.
But this is where things get a little sticky.
It was reported that Cannon was seeing 3 women, after stating he doesn’t believe in monogamy.
“I think I’ll never be able to be with just one woman again,” he said during an episode of the podcast ExpediTIously.
And he stayed true to his word, because during that time, it was reported he was seeing DJ Abby De La Rosa, model Lanisha Cole, and Brittany Bell.
He has recently had a child with Alyssa Scott.
But Nick has recently been hit with a true tragedy.
He recently announced that his and Alyssa’s little baby boy, Zen, has passed away.
He was just 5 months old.
Nick shared that on Thanksgiving they had to prepare themselves for the worst.
He opened up on his talk show, explaining that Zen was suffering from a brain cancer called hydrocephalus…
“I always noticed he had a cough, and so I wanted to check it out,” he explained. “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.”
Sadly, it was a lot worse than they previously thought. Doctors informed the couple that Zen actually had fluid build up in his brain…
And a malignant tumor.
He was immediately taken into surgery to release the pressure in his brain…
However, the star shared that in November things took a turn for the worst. “Thanksgiving, we had an interesting turn,” Nick tearfully said. “And things just sped up. The tumor began to grow a lot faster. And so we knew that time was…”
He spent his last few days with his son last week.
They took a trip to the beach, where Nick held baby Zen for the final time.
Nick recalled: “This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen.
“We woke up on Sunday, and I was just… I felt like I wanted to go to the water, close to the ocean. So we got a chance to go to the ocean.
“And usually on Sundays, I kind of handle everything I have to handle with the family and fly back to New York so I can be here for you all.
Nick broke down in tears, adding: “But I wanted to make sure I had the sun to rise and hold my son. And… Having the last… holding my son the last time…
“It was a beautiful setting and to spend that whole day was interesting because even when I was holding my son I was still preparing my day as it normally went – to come back and come here.
“I didn’t know what it was gonna be, but I just… But even by the time I got in the car and was headed to the airport I had to turn around.”
Nick continued: “I turned around, and not only did we get to see the sunrise, but we got to see the sunset, too. And I didn’t know how I was gonna handle today, but I just wanted to grieve with my family.”
Alyssa has shared a video of their last precious moments together…
The model posted a sweet picture of Zen followed by what would be the last video of her son on her Instagram stories before the devastating news was revealed.
She could be heard lovingly saying: “Hi, you slept pretty good. Did you have lots of dreams? What were you dreaming about?”
Our thoughts are with Nick and Alyssa in this difficult time.
Rest in peace, baby Zen.
