Nick Cannon this weekend revealed his anger about false tabloid reports involving his wife Mariah Carey. But we can reveal that Mariah Carey and her husband are still under investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services.
The investigation centers on allegations of alcohol and drug use against Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon shortly after the birth of their twins. The investigation is expected to last at least another week, so that the department officials are completely satisfied.
Nick Cannon had tried to calm fears about the welfare of his newborn twins by explaining the origin of the investigation – but that has not halted the case against them.
Officials were keen to point out, “There has been absolutely no findings that either Mariah or Nick were doing anything illegal, or that could place the twins in danger. Unfortunately Nick was extremely angry when DCFS officials attempted to interview Mariah, which just escalated the situation. His anger didn’t help the situation.”
Mariah Carey was said to have understood her husband’s anger but was more cooperative with DCFS officials.
Mariah gave birth to twins Monroe and Moroccan on April 30, the couple’s third wedding anniversary. Nick thought that the allegations of drink and drugs in the hospital room shortly after the birth of the twins when someone overheard a nurse suggesting to Mariah that “if you drink Guinness the yeast improves breast-feeding.”
That is actually a traditional belief in many Western countries. But it is not known that Mariah Carey followed through on the advice.
The Child Protective Services are expected to make more than one follow-up call on the new parents back at home with Moroccan and Monroe, to be satisfied the children are not at risk.
