Nick Cannon: I Had Lupus-Like Autoimmune Disease

Poor Nick Cannon, he only seems to make headlines for being sick. Can he tweet a naked pic and get back to normal scandalous celebrity things? I just feel so bad for the guy.

Nick was hospitalized in January for kidney failure and then weeks later found blood clots in his lungs. Nick opened up to People mag about his recent string of health scares.

“The blood clot thing was probably the scariest because I've known people who have passed away from that.”

Nick was told by doctors to get rid of a few of his “many jobs.” He quit his post on his New York based radio show, but Nick was still spinning tunes at a live Deejaying event last night.

“I'm just trying to make sure I put my health first,” says Cannon.

While many were left wondering what was wrong with Nick Cannon, he kind of clears up the confusion.

“It's a lot of stuff, but it's all in order now,” says Cannon, “They kind of say [my] autoimmune [disease] is - like a lupus type of thing, but no one else in my family has it.”

Nick is on the road to recovery, but is still freaked from the blood clot in the lung incident, “I thought I was getting better,” says Cannon, “and then that happened, so that kind of came out of nowhere.”

“I feel blessed to be alive,” says Cannon, “If it wasn't discovered, I don't know [what would have happened].”
