Beloved U.S. talk show icon Montell Williams has returned to therapy after learning his 24-year-old daughter has been diagnosed with cancer.

The Tv personality, who has battled multiple sclerosis since 1999, has revealed his daughter Maressa is fighting stage two Hodgkin lymphoma, and admits the bad news has sent him back to therapy - so he can scream at someone.

He tells America's Closer magazine, "I just thought, 'I have already paid the price in this department. So why her?'

"I could wallow in a hole, but I won't let myself go there... I have not been to therapy in seven years. As of last week, I went back. And when I walked in I said, 'I don't want your opinion. All I want to do is scream'."
