    Nick Cannon is out of the hospital after battling what wife Mariah Carey called "mild kidney failure."

    The entertainer was hospitalized in Aspen, Colo., last week after he fell ill while the couple was on vacation there. He was transferred to a Los Angeles hospital a few days later. Carey said he was suffering from a form of kidney failure but no further details were released.

    In a statement Monday, Cannon's publicist Tracy Nguyen (WIHN) said he's now "resting and recovering at home" and thanks everyone who was concerned about him.

    She says he'll return to his live morning radio show, "Rollin' with Nick Cannon," on Jan. 17.
