The host of NBC’s "America’s Got Talent" has been hospitalized with kidney failure, reports ABCNews.com.
Nick Cannon’s wife, singer Mariah Carey, announced his hospitalization via Twitter, calling it "mild kidney failure," the story says. Cannon, 31, is in an Aspen, Colo., hospital.
Acute kidney failure can happen suddenly, and cases can range from mild to serious, the story says. Causes can be linked to medication or an infection and in some cases can be reversed. Chronic failure happens over time and is usually the result of illnesses such as diabetes or high blood pressure, the story says.
Cannon has had a diverse career, including working as an actor, rapper, comedian and record producer, and hosting Nickelodeon’s “The Nick Cannon Show” and MTV’s “Wild ‘n Out” before getting the “America’s Got Talent” job.
