Alyssa Scott has spoken up after Nick Cannon threw a baby shower for Bre Tiesi with whom he’s expecting a baby.
Alyssa is the mother of Zen, Nick’s five-month-old son who passed away last December. She released a statement to Instagram saying, “I want to thank every single person who has messaged or thought of me over the last course of these last few months. I always say Zen expanded my heart in ways I never thought possible. He filled that that space with compassion, knowing I would need that most.”
The model continued, “It is painful having my son be apart of conversations that aren’t in alignment with his light and legacy. It isn’t something I chose for him or myself.”
“It’s important for me to let you all know.. I am centered, I am at peace,” she added. “I look at everyone’s predicament with loving eyes. I will not judge. I will consciously decide what I will participate in. I am surrounded by love. God, my mom, dad, sister, brother and daughter continue to carry me.”
She also shared on her Instagram Stories that they “knew since August that Zens time on this earth would be limited. We knew he would not make it to see 6 months.”
“I am eternally grateful he was in the arms of the people who loved him most. I know we were fully present and with him in these moments,” she wrote alongside Zen’s pic. “We love you Zen. We got you down here baby boy.”
The actor announced during the episode of The Nick Cannon Show on January 31 that he and Bre were expecting a baby but he didn’t share the news earlier to “respect the grieving process with Alyssa.”
According to him, he needed to confirm the pregnancy after photos of them attending a baby shower were shared over the weekend.
He said, “I didn’t know what to say when I was dealing with Zen or to hold off. Even right now, that it came out yesterday, that wasn’t planned to talk about it. We wanted to, you know, hold on as long as we can, but it happened. We here and I’m with my family.”
Nick and his ex-wife Mariah Carey also share 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe. He also has a son, Golden “Sagon”, 4, and Powerful Quen, 1, with Brittany Bell. He and Abby De La Rosa have 7-month-old twins together namely Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir.
