Nick Cannon released from hospital, home with family

Nick Cannon has been released from a Los Angeles hospital less than a week after he was first treated for “mild kidney failure.”

Cannon’s publicist said in a statement that he was released over the weekend to be with his family. “He is resting and recovering at home and would like to thank everyone who has expressed concern, well wishes and prayers,” Tracy Nguyen, Cannon’s rep, said.

The 31-year-old actor, musician and father of “dem babies” was hospitalized in Aspen, Colo., last Wednesday. While his exact illness is still a mystery — “mild kidney failure” isn’t an actual medical term — Cannon was reportedly suffering from the flu before his hospitalization, which may have led to problems with his kidneys.

“Daddy Nick is getting [better], we’re all home together taking care of each other, excited about the new year!!” Carey wrote Tuesday on Twitter. The diva, who gave birth to the couple’s twins in May, has been tweeting occasional updates about her husband’s condition, accompanied by pictures of her doting on him accordingly in his hospital room.

Nguyen said Cannon will return to his radio duties on 92.3 NOW FM, where he hosts “Rollin’ With Nick Cannon,” on Jan. 17.
