Nick Cannon has been diagnosed with Pneumonia
Nick Cannon, 42, revealed on Instagram on Friday that he has been hospitalized with pneumonia.
The Masked Singer host updated his followers on his health by posting two images of himself from a hospital bed on Instagram. He began,
“Okay, so I guess I’m not Superman. I promised myself I would never be back at this place again… But this is a great lesson to take care of YOU or YOU won’t be able to take care of everyone else,”
The host then went on to reveal,
“Don’t trip though, I don’t need any well wishes or prayers , just some solid rest and I will be back on the journey to becoming stronger than ever. It’s just pneumonia, nothing I can’t handle.”
He stated that just a few hours earlier, he had been performing for his “Wild ‘N Out” tour as if nothing were wrong. Meanwhile, he was simply astounded by how dramatically his health had altered in just 24 hours.
“Crazy thing is, last night we was just rocking a sold out crowd at Madison square garden in front of thousands of fans, now I’m all alone in a tiny hospital room.”
“Life is definitely a rollercoaster! #LupusWarrior.”
Nick Cannon earlier struggled with an autoimmune disease
Cannon first spoke out about his battle with lupus in 2012, after being admitted to the hospital for mild kidney failure and blood clots in his lungs.
The “Wild ‘n Out” host reflected on his ten-year battle during an episode of his self-titled talk show in January 2022, sharing that the “sudden and mysterious” illness nearly killed him.
The former “America’s Got Talent” host told PEOPLE at the time,
“I feel blessed to be alive. If it wasn’t discovered, I don’t know [what would have happened].”
Cannon went to the hospital after experiencing “excruciating” pain in his right side, as well as sudden swelling. After an examination, doctors informed him that his kidneys were failing and that he would need to begin a new renal diet to strengthen his organs.
“Throughout this journey, I had to change everything about the way I live my life and it wasn’t easy,”
However, Nick appeared to have made significant progress in his health journey. He is a father to eleven children, with a twelfth on the way soon.
