Famous host Nick Cannon and wife Alyssa Scott are grieving the loss of their youngest child who died as a result of a brain tumour.

He made his son’s death known on his show to his audience, saying “Over the weekend, I lost my youngest son to a condition called hydrocephalus that was pretty much a malignant, invasive midline brain tumor, brain cancer,” an emotional Cannon said. “It’s tough.”

While in California to share his last moments with his youngest son, he said on his show, “not only did we get to see the sunrise, we got to see the sunset.” “I didn’t know how I was going to handle today.”

Zen is Cannon’s first child with his model wife. At the time of his passing, Zen was five-month-old. He had six siblings from Cannon’s other relationships.

In a description of the ailment by Mayo clinic, “Hydrocephalus is the buildup of fluid in the cavities (ventricles) deep within the brain. The excess fluid increases the size of the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain.”

Hydrocephalus can happen at any age, more frequently among infants. 50% of affected sufferers die before three years of age and roughly 80% die before entering adulthood.
