Nick Cannon has landed in the hospital after suffering from “mild kidney failure.”

The 31-year-old’s wife Mariah Carey announced the news on Twitter on Wednesday morning, writing, “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure.”

The 41-year-old singer, who welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe in April 2011 with Nick, also blogged about her husband’s health scare.

“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,” she wrote on her website and posted a photo of herself with Nick in his hospital bed in Aspen.

“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.,” she continued.

Adding, “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.”
