‘My heart is shattered’: Nick Cannon shares he is in deep grief over loss of his son Zen at five months as he adds ‘I wish I could have hugged him longer’
Nick Cannon sadly lost his youngest child this month when he passed away from brain cancer at just five months old. The mother is his ex, model Alyssa Scott.
The actor first shared news of Zen’s passing on his talk show last week when he revealed the tot had an ‘invasive mid-line brain tumor.’
‘Over the weekend I lost my youngest son to a condition called hydrocephalus that was pretty much a malignant, invasive mid-line brain tumor – brain cancer. It’s tough,’ shared the ex of Mariah Carey.
And now the star has told People that his heart is ‘shattered’ over the terrible loss that took place only 10 days ago.
‘We had a short time with a true angel,’ said Cannon as he posed for the cover of People.
‘My heart is shattered. I wish I could have done more, spent more time with him, taken more pictures. I wish I could have hugged him longer,’ added the Drumline star.
