nick cannon hospital Mariah Carey: Nick Cannon hospitalized for kidney failureThis is distressing news in the world of entertainment. Mariah Carey posted a message on her blog and on Twitter Wednesday (Jan. 4) alerting fans that her husband Nick Cannon has been hospitalized for kidney failure.

Carey tweets, “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman,” along with the above picture.

And the message on her blog says:

“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.

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.”

Oof, that’s not a fun way to ring in the New Year. We wish Nick a speedy recovery.
