Nick Cannon Kidney Failure: Hospitalized for Recovery

Paul Archuleta, FilmMagic

Early Wednesday (Jan. 4), Mariah Carey let the world know her husband Nick Cannon was hospitalized after experiencing “mild kidney failure” over the Christmas holiday.

‘The Emancipation of Mimi’ creator took to Twitter to share the news of the actor-entrepreneur with her more than 5 million followers. “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman,” she tweeted alongside a photo of herself lying beside Cannon in a hospital bed.

The 31-year-old Cannon traveled to Aspen, Colo. with Carey and twin babies Monroe and Moroccan for Christmas. He was rushed to the hospital during his family vacation as a result of issues with his kidneys.

Read Mariah Carey’s note about her husband’s recovery below.

“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. LYM.”
