Zen Cannon Wiki – Zen Cannon Biography

Zen Cannon was the son of Nick Cannon. Zen has died of brain cancer.

“The Masked Singer” host announced the devastating news on his eponymous talk show Tuesday morning, breaking down in tears as he detailed his son’s private health battle with hydrocephalus, a form of brain cancer.

“I always noticed he had a cough, and so I wanted to check it out,” Cannon, 41, explained (via Entertainment Tonight). “He had this exciting breathing, and by the time he was two months, I noticed he had this nice-sized head too — a Cannon’s 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.”


He was only 5 months old.

Brain Cancer

Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed Zen in July. The family learned that Zen — Cannon’s seventh child — had been building up fluid in his brain that turned out to be a malignant tumour.

Baby Zen underwent surgery to have a shunt put in to drain the fluid. Unfortunately, the tot’s health took a turn near Thanksgiving, so Cannon flew out to Los Angeles to be with Zen and Alyssa.

“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,” he shared, breaking down in tears. “I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen.”

Cannon then tearfully shared that he held his son for the last time this weekend.

“You can’t heal until you feel,” he told the audience, adding that he’s at work so soon after because it serves as a distraction.
