Nick Cannon paid tribute to his son, Zen, who died aged five months in December 2021 from brain cancer. The baby was the result of the actor’s relationship with model Alyssa Scott.
“Physically I’m definitely on the mend, but mentally and spiritually I’m broken. I’ve been tossing and turning all night, and as much as I know I need to rest, I couldn’t sleep last night. I can’t believe it’s been a year since the hardest day in my life. my life. Such a painful birthday. Losing a child must be the heaviest, darkest and most depressing experience I will ever get over. A mixture of guilt, pain and sadness is what I repress daily. I am far from perfect and I often fail and I make decisions in my life that many question but anyone who knows me knows my heart. I love so much, I love so much and I love with all my heart and soul and I just wish my little man could have felt more of that love while he was here on Earth,” he said, adding about the difficult period he is facing.
“One of my Spiritual Leaders recently told me that I am going through one of the most challenging phases of my life, but he encouraged me to be firm and know that all this will only make me stronger, not lean on myself. understanding, but trust in the peace that overcomes everything. But let me tell you, it’s hard… I know a few days ago I wrote a post from my hospital bed saying I would be fine and I just needed to rest so don’t waste your prayers on me but definitely I can use these prayers correctly now… Continue to rest peacefully my son, Zen Scott Cannon. We Love You Forever,” he concluded.
