Mariah Carey's man, and father of her two children, is in a hospital recovering from mild kidney failure in an Aspen, Colorado hospital. Nick Cannon and Mariah were celebrating the holidays in Aspen when the situation developed. Last year, it was Mariah in the hospital, but that was to deliver her children, Monroe and Moroccan.

In a statement released on Mariah Carey's website, she says

"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. They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.

We're doing OK but we're "straaaaaanded in Aspen". #DramaticDivaPlace (I know, we could be in a lot worse places) but the truth is as long as we're together, we're OK. I'm not trying to make light out of the situation because it's a serious moment that's very tough on all of us so please keep us and our family in your prayers. LYM."

No other details as of yet, but we'll keep you posted as to his progress.
