Taking to his Instagram account on Tuesday, Cannon put up a video clip from the Nick Cannon Show speaking about his son, who, passed from a rare brain tumour.

Zen was born on June 23, and Cannon recalled the moment when he and Alyssa Scott became aware that their son suffered from a condition called Hydrocephalus.

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

“He had this interesting breathing and by the time he was two months, I noticed he had a nice sized head too — I call it 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.”
