Nick Cannon Hospitalised After Kidney Failure

Nick Cannon was rushed to the hospital emergency room earlier this week after suffering a mild kidney failure while vacationing in Aspen with wife Mariah Carey.

Mariah Carey confirmed the news via Twitter yesterday, “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure,” she said.

She also sent out a picture of Nick Cannon in a hospital bed attached to monitors and IVs, while she laid in bed with him. Later on she updated her website saying:

“This is us in the hospital – role reversal; Last year it was me attached to the machines (after having dembabies) and Nick was there with me through it, and now here we are.

We’re trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful. They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.

We’re doing OK but we’re “straaaaaanded in Aspen”. #DramaticDivaPlace (I know, we could be in a lot worse places) but the truth is as long as we’re together, we’re OK. I’m not trying to make light out of the situation because it’s a serious moment that’s very tough on all of us so please keep us and our family in your prayers.”

Cannon was transferred to a Los Angeles hospital today with his wife and family by his side.
