Mariah Carey has asked fans to pray for her husband Nick Cannon after he was hospitalised with mild kidney failure. The America’s Got Talent star was taken ill earlier this week and has been admitted to a medical facility.

Carey took to her Twitter.com page on Wednesday and uploaded a picture of her and Cannon cuddling in his hospital bed while she gives him a drink through a straw. Alongside the snap, Carey tweets, “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. mybraveman.” She also took to her official website to offer more details about Cannon’s medical drama. Carey 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.”                              –OCU
