Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon‘s Holiday vacation in Aspen was rudely interrupted this week after Nick was reportedly rushed to the hospital after suffering “mild kidney failure.”
Mariah confirmed the shocking news via her Twitter and her official website earlier today (Wed Jan 4).
“Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman,” the R&B/Pop diva tweeted, along with a picture of her lying with him in his bed at the hospital.
Carey wrote on her website that she and her husband were “trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful.”

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.
Later in the day, Cannon tweeted that he was “currently being transferred to a hospital in L.A.” and also thanked his fans for keeping him in their thoughts and prayers.
“Thank you for all your love, prayers and concern,” he tweeted. “You know me. I will be a’ight.”
A witness told US Weekly that the Cannon-Careys had their 8-month twins along with them as they were flown to L.A. Wednesday evening. “Nick looked pretty frail and weak, but Mariah was helping him,” they said.
His wife Mariah Carey says considering the situation, which she says is “not easy,” the actor and TV personality is in “good spirits,” though he is in “a lot of pain,” but stable.
“We are hopeful that he’ll be 100 percent as soon as possible,” she told People. “We really appreciate everybody’s love and support.”
Get well soon Nick!
