Mariah: Nick Cannon recovering from 'mild kidney failure'

Mariah Carey has reached out to her fans asking for support as her husband Nick Cannon recovers from what Carey has described as a "mild kidney failure."

"Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover," the singer tweeted Wednesday, along with a photo of herself taking care of Nick in the hospital. Just yesterday, 31-year-old Cannon was sharing photos of the couple's Aspen vacation with their twins, Monroe and Moroccan.

Carey explained the situation further on her website, saying that the couple are "trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances, but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful."

She continued, "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."

Just last April, Mariah noted, it was her who was "attached to the machines" in the hospital after giving birth to the couple's twins, and now it's her turn to stick close to Nick's bedside.

"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," the 42-year-old singer added, "so please keep us and our family in your prayers."

    First off, you're an idiot. Secondly, you're an idiot. Thirdly, they're taking advantage of the system...? What system? They are an extremely rich couple, I doubt they rolled up to the hospital with a Medicaid card. And lastly, you're an idiot.

    You all are immature and ignorant. Some guy's in a hospital for kidney failure & youre calling him names? If u dropped dead of a kidney failure we would all stand around & laugh our heads off. U should be ashamed of yourselves. Thank you everyone who aknowledges this as a bad thing. Hope you feel better soon, Nick.

    Steve, I'm not a "tea party" member but I believe last time I looked, this is the USA, so here's the truth: this person doesn't express the opinion of any "tea party" member I ever met. "Tea party" and "racist" aren't synonymous, no matter how much you would like to say so. Just because someone doesn't like Obama doesn't mean they are a "tea party" member, either. I can't imagine a single Republican I know saying the kind of BS "tracle" states, and personally, I think it's more likely "tracle" is a teenager or a bottom-feeder twit that knows nothing about politics of any sort.

    Why do you, sir, spew venom the way the person you are responding to does? Very sad, indeed.

      This site has become ridiculous in how much hate and racism is posted. If it isn't hate and racism, it is just ridiculous and stupid nonsense; no intelligent conversation, or thoughtful posts anymore.

    FACT: SICKNESS AND DEATH IS SOMETHING ALL HUMANS HAVE TO COPE WITH!
    THE RICH GETS SICK JUST LIKE THE POOR....
    TODAY, TAKE THE TIME TO EXPRESS YOUR LOVE TO A FRIEND OR LOVED ONE....
    STOP, THINK OF WHO IS IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIFE, STOP
    DON'T WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW, DO IT NOW....
    TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISES TO ANY HUMAN.
    A PERSON WOULD GIVE UP ALL THEIR FAME, MONEY FOR THE GOOD
    HEALTH OF A LOVED ONE OR CHILD.......
    YOU ASKED FOR OUR PRAYERS, DID YOU KNOW, GOD DOE NOT LISTEN TO ALL
    PRAYERS. "THO THE MAKE MANY PRAYERS, I SHALL NOT LISTEN".
    GOD WANTS A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH AND EVERY PERSON.
    SO PRAY TO GOD AND JUST TALK TO HIM, ASK HIM TO MAKE HIMSELF
    KNOWN TO YOU....AND IF YOU ARE SINCERE HE WILL REVEAL HIMSELF
    TO YOU AND GIVE YOU THE STRENGTH YOU NEED TO COPE WITH
    WHATEVER PROBLEM YOU MAY HAVE.

    Kidney failure doesnt need a reason to occur and just because Nick isnt old and cranky like you Richard, doesnt mean it wont happen to him! I hope you never have to be looking at the possibility of dialysis just because your kidneys decide to take a vacation. Speedy recovery to you Nick!

      Easily. He could have been born with a kidney issue, contracted a viral diease as a child that impaired his kidneys. I for one was born missing a kidney, thank God I am strong and healthy but I'm only 34 and can drop dead from kidney failure any day. Most people take for granted having 2 is a blessing, one stops functioning you have a back up that can bear the burden..... I don't and nor may he.

      Richard are you serious? You can't be that ignorant. Children suffer from kidney disease, cancer, diabetes and so on. So what makes you think that it is impossible for Nick to suffer from it? My goodness. And to the rest of the other ignorant comments such as them milking the system, only racist pigs like you, would suggest such a thing.
