Media mogul Nick Cannon gave his family and his fans quite the scare this week when he was rushed to the hospital for mild kidney failure while vacationing with his wife, Mariah Carey, in Aspen, Colo. While the medical emergency left many worried, fans can now rest easy as Cannon has provided an update on his condition.

On Jan. 4, Cannon tweeted fans that he was transferring from the Aspen Valley Hospital in Colorado to a hospital in L.A.

“Currently being transfered to a hospital in L.A. Thank you all for all your love, prayers and concern. You know me… I will be a’ight,” tweeted Cannon.

Paparrazi photos also surfaced around the same time, showing Cannon and Carey boarding a private jet to L.A. and Cannon smiling as he sits in a wheelchair, while his wife and mother greet fans as he enters Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

The following day, Cannon tweeted a photo of himself getting a haircut with the message “getting back to business” attached.

We’re glad to see that Cannon is recovering well and charged enough to get back to his many businesses. Check out five other celebrity health scares below. –nicholas robinson

    Great News!!! Glad to hear Nick is recovering well and in good spirits. You know, there was once a time I thought of Nick as a cute, corny kid, but he has truly grown gracefully into manhood and I find him rather charming. I still think Mariah looks like she could be his mama, but I ain’t mad at her cougar hustle. She snagged a good one who made her a mommy and obviously makes her feel happy and whole. Way to go girl and and an even speedier recovery to Nick.
