Nick Cannon breaks down in tears as he reveals his five-month-old son Zen has died from brain tumor that ‘developed quickly over Thanksgiving’: Spent final weekend with him and baby mom Alyssa Scott on California beach

He made the announcement on The Nick Cannon Show Tuesday morning, telling the audience his 5-month-old son passed away after previously suffering from hydrocephalus, in which fluid builds up in the cavities of the brain and increases the size of the ventricles, putting pressure on the brain.

Cannon, 41, said the tumor developed quickly around Thanksgiving, and as he broke down in tears on his show, he told how he spent this past weekend in California to share a few last moments with Zen. 

The actor said he took his son on a trip to the beach on Sunday and held Zen for the last time. He died soon after. 

Zen was Nick’s seventh child, delivered in June by former flame Alyssa Scott, 28.

He was the fourth of Nick’s children born within the past year and a half, with twins Zillion and Zion born in June, and his daughter, Powerful, born last December.

The seven children are with four different women, including his ex-wife Mariah Carey, ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell, his current partner Abby de la Rosa, and Scott, a model who appeared in one of Cannon’s music videos. 

Cannon said he started to have concerns about his son’s breathing when Zen (pictured) was just two months old.
