*Mariah Carey’s husband Nick Cannon has had a cyst removed from his cheek after complaining about the growth during a TV appearance on Friday.
The host of “America’s Got Talent” tried to cover the “pimple” during his guest spot on “Access Hollywood Live” last week, but decided to just show it off when he realized make-up hadn’t masked it. He said the pills he has been taking for autoimmune disease lupus nephritis caused the growth.
“I’m healthy. The only thing that isn’t healthy is this big ol’ pimple on my face. It has its own Twitter page… It’s actually been there for a while. It’s because of some of the medication that I’m on and stuff like that,” he said. “I have to go and get it looked at.”
Cannon underwent minor surgery over the weekend to get the cyst removed. He took to Twitter on Sunday (July 28) to give followers an update and wrote, “Had a cyst on my face the size of a grape!! I want to show y’all the pics of the removal but its too disgusting!”
