Add “doting wife” to the list of Mariah Carey‘s many titles.
The diva, 41, tweeted the shot above of her in hospital with husband Nick Cannon just moments ago, going on to reveal that the presenter and comic is being treated for “mild kidney failure”.
Full story below…
“Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure.
Going on to add on her official site:
“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. “
Granted I don’t doubt the legitimacy of Nick’s illness, I must say this reeks of Eau de Tacky. Call me the grinch, but I struggle to see how apt it is to be tweeting, hash-tagging, and serving up your usual diva-isms given the serious circumstances.
Now, of course, it’s not at all anyone’s place to be nitpicking any aspect of Mimi’s marriage. However, this is at best more evidence that she really does live in a bubble and is eternally 12. Or at worst, that she’s attention-seeking. A bit of both, me thinks…
