On Wednesday (January 4) Mariah Carey revealed to the public that her husband Nick Cannon had been rushed to the hospital a few days earlier after suffering from mild kidney failure over the holidays. The couple was in Aspen, Colorado with twins Monroe and Moroccan for Christmas, but the holiday quickly turned sour when one of Cannon’s kidneys failed and he was immediately admitted to the hospital.
Less than 24 hours before Nick was taken to the hospital the couple was photographed walking the streets of Aspen with bundled up twins in tow.
The five-time Grammy award winning singer took to her Twitter to announce the news to her 5 million deep followers. “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman,”she tweeted. She also twitpic’d a picture of her lying in bed with her radio and TV personality husband at the hospital.
“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,” the E=MC2 singer said in a statement posted on her website. Mrs. Cannon has no plans of leaving her husband’s side as she goes on to say in her message. “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,” Mariah continued.
“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.”
