UPDATE: Nick Cannon told Today Tuesday his wife's injuries were "pretty serious," explaining, "Not only did she dislocate her shoulder, she actually cracked a rib and ... she chipped her shoulder bone."

"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 said, adding that Mariah had been "a trooper" throughout her recovery.


Good news, dahhhlings: Mariah Carey is on the mend.

The singer was rushed to the hospital Sunday night while filming a video for the remix of "#Beautiful," but on Tuesday Nick Cannon's love tweeted a picture to reassure her lambs she was going to be OK.

She tweeted, "dislocated my shoulder on the remix video with Jeezy," then added "sporting a very fashionable sling for the next couple of weeks!"

The shot shows the Grammy winner sitting up in a hospital bed, surrounded by tubes and medical equipment, as a gentle hand (Nick's, we're guessing) touches her shoulder comfortingly.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, which was first to report on Mariah's injury, the singer was treated at New York's Hospital for Special Surgery on the Upper East Side. There, doctors reportedly reset her shoulder and she was sent home to recover.

Mariah is scheduled to perform this Saturday in Central Park's Great Lawn as part of a concert to benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief. According to a source, she "will perform, but it is likely she will have her arm in a sling." (Obviously, Mimi will manage to make that look glam.)

It's a good thing she's got the support of her hubby Nick, because looking after dem babies with only one good arm would be quite challenging. Mariah told ABC News in January that little Monroe likes a little extra attention.

"I call her Miss Monroe, and that kind of dictated her personality," the proud mom said. "She's a total diva. She's into jewelry. She's fascinated by jewelry."

As for Monroe's twin, Moroccan Scott Cannon (aka Roc)? "He's my pal," Mariah said. "He'll just watch movies with me. We've watched Shrek I don't know how many times. We watch movies all the time together, relax. He's more chill."

Aw! We have a feeling Roc and Roe will do what they can to help mom feel better ASAP!
