He may have made headlines over the past year due to his split from his very famous wife, but this star is back under the media spotlight again for a very different reason this time around.


Presenter and father-of-two Nick Cannon caused concern among his fans last night, after he shared photo of himself hooked up to machines in a hospital bed.


The 34-year-old American’s Got Talent host, who announced his separation from wife Mariah Carey last year, was taken to hospital in the latest bout of his fight with lupus nephritis, an autoimmune disease which he was diagnosed with three years ago.


“Sometimes I can be a little too bull-headed and stubborn. I gotta stop running my body to the ground,” wrote Cannon, who is father to four-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.



The star was first diagnosed with the disease back in 2012, after being hospitalised for mild kidney failure and, later, blood clots in his lungs.


“I be wanting to grind non-stop but the engine can’t run on fumes,” said Cannon, before joking, “I really think I’m a super-hero…Now I’m not saying I’m Batman, but I am saying nobody has ever seen me and Batman in the same room together.”



We’re wishing him a speedy recovery.
