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."

"One More Try" (53,782)
by Ardis from Earth
I was listening to "Me, I am Mariah" today and when I heard this song again, I just had to post about it. Originally recorded by the amazing George Michael, I remember hearing this song as young kid in the 80's. At the time I thought the song was ok, but I preferred some of... read more (Wednesday 27 May 2015; 1:12)

Bit typical of this board to annihilate someone because an article claimed someone was less than complimentary about Mariah. Never mind facts or "the truth". Bit like the continuous annihilation of Nick Cannon, despite Mariah never having said anything negative, and the need to try to find "shade" in her songs, about him. On a lighter note, I saw a... read more (Wednesday 27 May 2015; 0:40)
Sarah and the tea (53,780)
by Kate from UK
You're spot on about the tea. When people say, "the tea was spilt and it was scalding" the scalding nature of the tea is due to the harsh truth and perhaps leads to a burn. I think "everything you own boy you still owe" is a prime example. (Tuesday 26 May 2015; 20:59)
