He added, that it was important to him and Bre Tiesi to respect Alyssa Scott’s mourning process.
“I wanted to definitely respect the grieving process with Alyssa, and Bre was respectful enough to — She held off making our announcements and speaking on social media. She’s a very, you know, in the public eye type of person, but keeps her stuff private as well. And it was just one of those things like, you don’t – I didn’t know what to do.”
Following the airing of his show, Alyssa Scott seemingly addressed how people reacted to Cannon’s announcement. The model shared a heartfelt post to her Instagram page and said,
