Mariah Carey is spreading the news that her hubby Nick Cannon has been hospitalized for mild kidney failure during their trip to Aspen. The superstar posted a picture of Cannon, who appears to be half-asleep in a hospital bed, to both her website and Twitter feed, with the caption:
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.
She’s asked fans to “please pray for Nick,” but did not get into the source of his ailment, further background on his illness, or how long he expects to be hospitalized. She did note the gravity of the situation in her very Mariah way:
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.
Mariah Carey really is…somethin’ else. Get well soon, Nick!
