Los Angeles - Nick Cannon has been released from hospital.

The America's Got Talent host - who was treated for "mild kidney failure" while holidaying in Aspen, Colorado, last week, before being transferred to a Los Angeles medical facility - is "resting and recovering at home" with wife Mariah Carey, and will return to work later this month.

His representative said in a statement: "Nick Cannon was released over the weekend to be with his family. He is resting and recovering at home and would like to thank everyone who has expressed concern, well wishes and prayers.

"He plans to return to his live morning radio show broadcast Rollin' with Nick Cannon on 92.3 NOW FM on January 17."


On Saturday, Nick explained he had undergone a surgical procedure and predicted he will recover to be "stronger" than before.

He tweeted: "Just left the operating table and I was awake during the whole procedure. #OUCH Recovering... about to be stronger than ever! #Ncredible!"

Mariah revealed Nick had been taken ill on her Twitter page last Wednesday and asked fans to pray for her "brave" spouse.

She tweeted: "Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman (sic)."
