Nick Cannon’s youngest son, Zen, has passed away. Zen was only five months old. Cannon revealed the news on his talk show today.

Cannon showed a photo of his youngest son Zen, as the pic of the day. The crowd erupted with applause for the adorable picture. Then, Nick visibly began to break down as he revealed the news of Zen’s passing publicly for the very first time.

“I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out,” he said. “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…

This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and went to the ocean with him and Alyssa and then I had to fly back to New York for the show. I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen.


You can’t heal until you feel.”

Nick Cannon posted the clip to his social media outlets. Cannon fathered Zen with Alyssa Scott in June. He was Nick Cannon’s seventh child. Our condolences go out to Nick Cannon and his family in this time of unimaginable difficulty.
