R&B Diva Monica Brown's father, M.C. "Billy" Arnold Jr., was diagnosed with kidney failure on the same day that her daughter Laiyah Shannon Brown was born. Monica shared the sad news with her 1.8 million followers on Twitter.com yesterday. Monica tweeted a touching Instagram photo of her father cradling his granddaughter. In the caption, she wrote: "The same day our daughter was born my father was admitted. Dr's say Kidney failure. I just stay in prayer because I know God never fails!!!"

Last night, singer Mariah Carey tweeted a photo of her husband Nick Cannon laid up in a hospital bed in Aspen, along with the news that he was hospitalized with a "mild" form of kidney failure.

"Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure," she tweeted early Wednesday morning.

In a subsequent tweet, she added: "We're trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful. They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C."
