Nick Cannon Apologizes For Comments Made During Latest Pregnancy Announcement
Nick Cannon apologized on his talk show today for misspeaking during Monday’s episode of The Nick Cannon Show. The entertainer addressed comments he made on his show when he opened about his celibacy journey. During Monday’s episode, he also touched on the passing of his son Zen while announcing to the audience that he has his eighth child on the way. A somber Cannon took a moment to reflect to the audience.
The Masked Singer host recently joined the mother of his future child, Brie Tiesi, in an intimate gender reveal party over the weekend. When the host returned to his show on Monday, he continued the celebration by sharing pictures from the event.
Cannon also revealed that he knew Tiesi was pregnant before the death of his young son, Zen, who died from a brain tumor this past December. Cannon talked about his excitement and happiness for bringing a new life into the world. He also joked with radio host, Angela Yee, about his celibacy journey during the show.
Soon after Monday’s episode, Zen’s mother, Alyssa Scott, took to Instagram to update fans. She says she was at peace. The post also included Scott stating that it was painful to have her son be a part of conversations that weren’t in alignment with Zen’s “light and legacy.“
Nick Cannon Reflects on His Comments
Cannon has been open about his healing journey and work with his therapist. On Thursday’s show he took time to reflect on his comments.
“I wish to protect and respect the privacy of the mothers of all my children,” Cannon said on the show. “I know I can do better when dealing with delicate and sensitive discussions.”
Cannon quickly acknowledged his failure and insensitivity on Monday’s show. He took full responsibility and did not hesitate to be open and vulnerable with his audience. Viewers have come to appreciate how transparent the host is during his shows.
“I promise my family that I will do better and continue to be more understanding, caring, and compassionate like they often show me each and every day,” he said before finishing his apology.
