Nick Cannon revealed on Instagram he's spending Christmas in the hospital due to lupus


Nick Cannon posted to Instagram to let fans know he'll be in the hospital this holiday season.

'I will be back to normal'

The 36-year-old actor, rapper and TV personality posted a photo of himself in a hospital bed on Thursday, revealing he has complications from lupus nephritis, a rare form of lupus that attacks the kidneys.

Canon wrote: "I will be in the hospital through Christmas. All good though, doctors say I will be back to normal before the new year."

The actor first discussed his ongoing health problems in 2012, after he was hospitalized with kidney failure and other issues.

Cannon enrolled as a freshman at Howard University in DC earlier this year.

Canon has two kids with his ex-wife, singer Mariah Carey.
