Here’s a photo Mariah Carey posted on her Twitter and her website: her husband Nick Cannon has been hospitalised for “mild kidney failure”. While he clearly looks distressed, his wife has decided, out of love of course, to cram herself onto that small bed to comfort him, jamming him and his poor kidney into one of the bars.

Mimi explains:

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.


Kidney failure is nothing compared to carrying around twins, do you remember how I suffered? Nick is a pussy for falling apart from a little kidney drama. How could he do this to me? My legs were tired so I had to lie down. Do you think I look good from this angle? I bought a new outfit that makes me look extra size 4-ish but the lighting in this place is sh-t. I need your prayers. We didn’t have time for a proper blowout today because Nick couldn’t pee. The good news is I’ll probably get a new diamond out of the experience. I’m strong. I will survive this.
