Mariah Carey’s husband Nick Cannon is hitting the brakes on his fast lane career, dropping his New York radio show Rollin with Nick Cannon in the wake of the multiple health woes that landed him in a Colorado hospital earlier this year.
“I guess I can’t drive at 200 mph for the whole road trip, Time to put the car in cruise control,” Cannon tweeted Friday.
The America’s Got Talent host, 31 — who previously said he’d had “major issues with my kidneys, along with some other stuff” — said Friday that after detecting blood clots in his lungs and an enlarged ventricle in his heart, doctors advised him something had to give.
Doctors, Cannon tweeted Friday, “said if I don’t slow down and stop working so hard then it’s a wrap!”
He said in a formal statement: “Under doctor’s orders, I have been asked to put my health first and cut back on some of my professional commitments in order to allow my body to get the rest that it needs to keep up with the demands of my multi-tasking schedule.
“Even Superman has to sleep.”
Cannon — who has baby twins with 41-year-old Carey, Moroccan and Monroe — will continue hosting America’s Got Talent and his syndicated show, Cannon’s Countdown.
