'Please pray for Nick': Mariah Carey reveals husband Cannon has kidney she bizarrely tweets bedside photo

By Emily Sheridan

TV presenter Nick Cannon has been rushed to hospital after suffering from kidney failure.

And despite wife Mariah Carey urging their fans to 'pray for Nick', the singer doesn't look too fearful about his health given her Twitter activity.

The mother-of-two, 41, bizarrely posted a photo of herself posing beside an ailing Nick, 31, in his hospital bed in Aspen, Colorado.

But the couple are clearly optimistic he will recover, with Mariah describing his kidney failure as 'mild'.

The Fantasy singer posted news of Nick's illness in the early hours of this morning.

She wrote: 'Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman.'

She then wrote a more detailed description of his medical drama on her official website.

She wrote: '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.'

The couple have been spending the Christmas and New Year period in Aspen with their twins Moroccan and Monroe.

Nick's hospitalisation perhaps explains why the couple haven't been photographed out and about in Aspen since New Year's Eve.
