Alcohol, drugs allegations still being probed
Officials with the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services are continuing
to investigate allegations of alcohol and drug use against Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
shortly after the birth of their twins. "The case will probably remain open for the next
week, out abundance of caution," a source with knowledge of the situation tells
"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. Under California law, anytime there is any allegation
made involving the welfare and safety of a child, DCFS is required to investigate. Mariah
was extremely cooperative with DCFS and answered all the questions. Mariah understood why
Nick was upset. He was just trying to protect her, and the twins."
Mariah gave birth to twins Monroe and Moroccan on April 30, the couple's third anniversary.
Cannon himself went public about the investigation during an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan.
He said he was approached shortly after the births by an official from DCFS over concerns
about alcohol and drug use involving the couple and their babies.
"Child Protective Services were called with allegations that there was some drinking and
drugs. and all that going on while in the hospital," Cannon told Morgan. The misunderstanding
Nick revealed, could have occurred when someone might have overheard a nurse suggesting to
Mariah "that if you drink Guinness... the yeast improves breast-feeding. I don't know if
someone overheard that, but then they were saying that my wife was drinking beer and all
this stuff. When I spoke to the person from the Child Protective Services, I was like,
'This is ridiculous.' Even to have to deal with that, even my wife in the state she's in,
and we're in the hospital, and to even have to think of someone possibly wanting to
investigate your children," Cannon said, still in disbelief about the situation.
But DCFS could pay one more visit to the couple once they are at home with the twins, the
source says. "That decision will be made by the social worker assigned to the case."

I actually liked the Bieber duet. I think it was cute and gives the song a whole new look. The original is definitely a classic, but I like the duet too. It's cute and festive. The climax was fun with both of them ad libbing.

The Rockefeller performance sounds amazing and Mariah looks stunning. I love how she's embracing the long sleeved gloves, it looks classy on her. And the red dress with the white mini coat? How stunning is it? She is also so gogeous, isn't she? I love how the two little raw videos sound, now let's hope some low life sound editor doesn't ruin the wh... read more

I think it is clear there is some sort of situation at IDJ. Looking In being performed after she broke her arm, I think was very deliberate and her tearing up at "She dreams of all that she can never be" was significant for me. It just felt that there was something that wasn't typical Mariah Carey in the works and the support wasn't there nurturing... read more
