Nick Cannon: Mariah’s a trooper

Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon is amazed by how gracefully his wife Mariah Carey dealt with her “pretty serious” shoulder injury.

Mariah dislocated her shoulder on Sunday while shooting her latest music promo for single #Beautiful in New York City. Immediately after the accident she visited New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery on the Upper East Side to have her shoulder rearranged.

Nick was with the mother of his two children when she sustained the trauma and he is shocked by how strong Mariah was through all the pain.

"She's such a trooper," Nick told the TODAY show Tuesday. "I was going to rush to the hospital with her, [but she said,] 'You get back in there and finish that video!' Then, after they put [her] shoulder back in place, bandaged her all up, she came back to the video early in the morning and finished out everything."

Apparently when Mariah went down she donned full diva attire.

Nick recalls how his glamorous spouse’s clothing led her to harm.

"She was in this nice, beautiful gown, heels on and everything, and was kind of on this platform and reached and slipped and fell on her whole side," he detailed.

Nick claims his wife’s injuries were a little more dramatic than initially reported, as the songstress’ bones were also damaged.

"It was pretty serious,” he said. “Not only did she dislocate her shoulder, she actually cracked a rib and . . . she chipped her shoulder bone."

Despite her injury it is rumoured Mariah will still perform in upcoming shows.

She is set to sing at a free concert on Central Park’s Great Lawn July 13, an event in association with Major League Baseball to benefit the Hurricane Sandy Relief.

The singer is currently promoting her album The Art of Letting Go, which is scheduled for release this year.
