Nick Cannon Opens Up About Health Issues

Mariah & Nick
The couple attended the Golden Globes together.
In case you haven’t noticed, Nick Cannon hasn’t exactly been the picture of health these past few months. First, he suffered from kidney failure following a family trip to Aspen, only to head back to the hospital a few weeks later for blood clots found in his lungs. Nick told People, “The blood clot thing was probably the scariest because … I’ve known people who have passed away from that.” 

According to Nick, these health problems stem from a Lupus-like autoimmune disease. He has since stepped down for his morning radio show and says that he’s really just trying to take it easy. As he said, it’s “something I’m going to be living with all my life.” He does point out that “It’s a lot of stuff, but it’s all in order now.”

Glad to hear it Nick. With two tiny babies in the house, it would be even more devastating if something were to happen. Plus, he and Mariah Carey are kind of a cute couple in a really bizarre way. But most importantly: “I feel blessed to be alive,” Nick said. “If it wasn’t discovered, I don’t know [what would have happened].”
