The American media personality, Nick Cannon, announced the devastating news of the death of his 5-month old son, on his eponymous talk show on Tuesday, breaking down in tears as he detailed his son’s private health battle with hydrocephalus and a tumor.

“I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out,” He always had this real interesting breathing, and then by the time he was 2 months old, I noticed he had a nice-sized head — I call it a Cannon head. We didn’t think anything about it but I really wanted to take him to the doctor for the breathing and to get his sinuses checked out. We thought it would be a routine process.

This weekend I made a valid effort to spend the most quality time I could spend with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and [went] to the ocean and then I had to fly back to New York for the show,” he shared, breaking down in tears. “By the time I got in the car and was headed to the airport, I had to turn around.”

Cannon then tearfully shared that he held his son for the last time on Sunday. It is reported that Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed Zen in July. The family learned that Zen — who was Cannon’s seventh child — had been building up fluid in his brain that turned out to be a malignant tumor.
