Nick Cannon is grateful for the prayers and condolences he’s received in the wake of his youngest child’s passing. While discussing the current phase of his grieving process on his self-titled talk show, the “Wild ‘N Out” comedian issued a message of gratitude to all of his supportive fans.
“People keep asking
me how I’m doing. I say, ‘I’m vertical, I’m standing and you know that’s a good start,'” he said.
“Yesterday, it was a little easier than today because yesterday I was so laser-focused and even numb. Today, I’m a little torn. I’m a little confused. Because it’s a hurting thing.”
“It’s just been an outpouring of love that is really unexpected. I didn’t expect it from all over the world I really can’t thank you guys enough,” he continued. “I say thank you from Alyssa, Zen’s mom, and the rest of our family…She’s making it, you know, five minutes at a time. But it’s but those words really, the tweets, it’s outstanding.”
As REVOLT previously reported, Scott’s son, Zen, passed away
after a battle with a rare brain cancer called Hydrocephalus
. During his heartfelt message, the talk show host sent love to mothers of children with special needs, including Zen’s mother, Alyssa Scott
, who mourned the loss of their late son in a tear-jerking tribute on social media.
“Oh my sweet Zen
. The soreness I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly fading away,” she penned
. “It’s a painful reminder that you are no longer here. I caught myself looking in the backseat as I was driving only to see the mirror no longer reflecting your perfect face back at me. When I close a door too loudly, I hold my breath and wince knowing a soft cry will shortly follow. It doesn’t come. The silence is deafening.”
“These last 5 months we have been in this race
together. We would hand the baton off to each other. You kept me going…,” Scott continued. “It feels unbearable running without you now. I can’t. And in this moment, I feel myself being carried. By your sister…By God. By complete strangers
encouraging me to not give up. It has been an honor and privilege being your mommy…I will love you for eternity. 6•23•21 – 12•5•21.
