    Nick Cannon is back at home recovering from kidney failure. His dad Jason spoke to UsWeekly about the scare and he says his son and his famous diva wife Mariah Carey are closer than ever following the health scare.

    He said, "Nick and Mariah have a very strong bond. If anything, this unexpected illness has made them closer than ever and appreciate one another even more. She would stay in the hospital overnight to support him. So they managed to cope even though Nick was pretty sick. But he is glad to be home now and his whole family is pleased about that also."

    Mr. Cannon finished, "The great thing about my son is that he always tries to stay upbeat. He took his mind off things by joking with the nurses and doctors and things like that. The doctors have ordered him to rest and make some adjustments to his diet too. It has been an educational process for him, and he is determined to make those changes and stay away from soft drinks and too many sugar-based foods now."

    So it was diet-related! Aw, poor guy. No more soda for Nick Cannon!

    Get better soon, dude!
