Nick Cannon Hospitalized For Kidney Failure
After months of waiting on Mariah Carey hand and foot during her pregnancy to their 8-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan back in 2011, the roles have reversed for Nick Cannon.
The 31-year-old America’s Got Talent host was hospitalized this afternoon while vacationing in Aspen, Colorado with “mild kidney failure,” and his wifey refuses to leave his bedside. “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure,” Mariah tweeted along with a picture of her lying in the hospital bed with her man. Nick was later transferred to a facility in Los Angeles to receive the best medical attention.
“We’re trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances, but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful,” Mariah wrote on her website. “They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C. 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.”
Although “mild kidney failure” is not actually a medical term, experts are guessing the star is most likely suffering from “acute kidney failure” which can come on suddenly but can be treated. Despite his illness, Nick is keeping up a brave face for friends, family and fans. “Thank you for all your love, prayers and concern,” he tweeted. “You know me. I will be a’ight.”
