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)."

    I knew it. I knew it. Mariah Carey asked us all to pray for Nick Cannon's recovery because she had little faith in the expertise of the doctors treating him. I prayed - Dear God Please ignore all the starving children in the world and all the wars going on and the murdering of innocents with bombs in the Middle East and please give all your special attention to saving millionairess Mariah Carey's millionaire rap artist and actor husband Nick Cannon. I beseech you God to stop helping famous sports stars for the time being to win competitions and help this poor bloke. I am a fan of the rich singer so you will hear my prayer, won't you? Amen And guess what - his mild case of kidney failure is cured. Hallelujah! It was god who cured him not those trained medical professionals. Hallelujah! God exists and he listened to my prayers. Hallelujah!
