Nick Cannon Diagnosed with Lupus-type of Disease


After being hospitalized in January for kidney failure and later on for blood clots in his lungs, Mariah Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon finally discovers the root cause of his recent medical ailments – an autoimmune lupus-type of disease.

The “America’s Got Talent” host told ‘People’, “It’s a lot of stuff, but it’s all in order now…They kind of say [my] autoimmune [disease] is – like a lupus type of thing, but no one else in my family has it.”

“I thought I was getting better,” Nick added. “And then that happened, so that kind of came out of nowhere.”

“I feel blessed to be alive,” he said. “If it wasn’t discovered, I don’t know [what would have happened].”

Mariah Carey on the other hand regularly tweets about her husband’s improving condition, saying, “Thank you everyone for all the love & concern…Nick is in stable condition with a good prognosis, hopefully he’ll be discharged within 2 days. As always he’s laughing and in good spirits.”
