Nick Cannon’s health concerns have caused for him to quit his radio gig in NYC.
Cannon fell ill with acute kidney failure during a post-Christmas family vacation in Aspen, Colorado last December, which lead to a surgery and further treatment in Los Angeles in January.
Cannon made another trip to the hospital last week where doctors diagnosed him with blood clots in his lungs and an enlarged ventricle in his heart.
On air during his morning show on New York’s WXRK station, Cannon told his listeners, “My doctor was saying that my work is going to kill me – and he’s not joking. I think part of the reason why my health did kind of deteriorate was because I wasn’t resting a lot and I was doing too much. I was overworking myself, working out too much.”
Now, per doctors orders, Cannon will step down from the radio gig.
A statement from Nick Cannon reads, “Under doctor’s orders, I have been asked to cut back on some of my professional commitments to allow my body to get the rest it needs to keep up with the demands of my multitasking schedule. Even Superman has to sleep.”
Hopefully he can get well and back to work soon!
