Nick Cannon Sick: On Friday, Nick Cannon made it known that he had been hospitalized with pneumonia.
“The Masked Singer” host — who also suffers from lupus — took to Instagram to share two photos of himself in a hospital bed amid his health struggles.
“Okay, so I guess I’m not Superman,” Cannon, 42, began in the post’s caption.
“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 “Drumline” star added, “Don’t trip, though. I don’t need any good 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 said afterward.
Cannon recalled that he was performing his “Wild ‘N Out” tour just a few hours prior without apparent problems.
“The crazy thing is, last night we were 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,” the “School Dance” star concluded. “Life is a rollercoaster! #LupusWarrior.”
After being admitted to the hospital for minor renal failure and pulmonary blood clots in 2012, Cannon revealed for the first time that he was battling the autoimmune disease.
“I feel blessed to be alive,” he told People at the time. “If it wasn’t discovered, I don’t know [what would have happened].”
On his now-gone talk show earlier this year, Cannon reflected on his ten-year struggle with lupus and revealed how the “sudden and mysterious” disease nearly claimed his life.
The former “America’s Got Talent” host chose to have eleven children, with a twelfth on the way, showing that he had made progress in his health.
In a “Nick Cannon’s Holiday Shopping” video earlier this week, Cannon made light of his enormous family, saying, “It’s almost the holidays, and thanks to me, the globe now has 8 billion people, but my job’s not done.”
