Mariah Carey: No longer under investigation, case closed!

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services very quickly wrapped up it’s interview with Mariah Carey this afternoon and concluded there was no merit to their investigation.

DCFS social workers interviewed Mariah (and may or may not have asked for her autograph) and also spent time with her twins. The workers concluded that the children were in a healthy and safe environment.

The initial investigation was triggered by an anonymous source at the hospital where Mariah gave birth to her twins. The source claimed to witness Mariah drinking a Guinness beer while she was breast feeding.

Mariah was informed by a hospital staffer that drinking a dark beer would assist her in lactating. We’re told Mariah informed social workers she simply followed the hospital staffer’s advice and drank the Guinness, never hiding the fact that she consumed the drink.

We’re told Mariah’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, was present during the DCFS interview today.

Our DCFS sources say officials have concluded there is no merit to the complaint.

I’m all for DCFS getting involved when necessary, but this story just seemed so phony from the beginning. I feel bad for Mariah & Nick. Someone obviously looking to make a buck makes an “anonymous tip” and tries to stir up trouble. Thankfully it’s over quickly and Mariah can go back to raising butterflies babies.

New parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon finally take Moroccan and Monroe home! But Child Protection Services questioned them first!

It’s been two weeks of resting in bed for new mommy Mariah Carey. The 42-year-old songstress finally left UCLA Medical Center this past Saturday (May 14), escorted by husband Nick Cannon, 30, and twins Moroccan Scott and Monroe. The parents bundled up the babies in blue and pink blankets and drove off in their Rolls Royce Phantom together!

“My wife wanted to make sure that when the babies came out, that they came out not only to a Mariah Carey song, but a live performance from Mariah Carey — her Madison Square performance of ‘Fantasy’ — so they came out to a round of applause,” Cannon said in an appearance on The Gayle King Show last week.

Unfortunately for the first-time parents, not everything about Carey’s two-week stay was as harmonious.

“Child Protective Services actually came to me while I was in the hallway and said that they were here to see me because there had been allegations that there was drug and alcohol use during the stay in the hospital,” Cannon told CNN’s Piers Morgan last week. “I was like, ‘Well, how would that even be possible? How could the hospital even allow that?’”

“It all started when a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, the dark beer, the yeast improves breastfeeding,” Cannon explained. “I don’t know if someone heard that, but then they were saying my wife was drinking beer. People will do anything to try to conjure up a story.”

Mariah Carey has already been visited by a social worker – for drinking while breastfeeding!

Well this didn’t take long!

According to Nick Cannon, wife Mariah Carey had an unexpected visitor while in the hospital this week! A social work stopped by, to investigate a claim that Carey was abusing her newborn twins by consuming alcohol and drugs while breastfeeding!

Cannon told CNN that he believes someone is trying to sell the story to tabloids. A nurse at the hospital suggested that Carey drink a small amount of dark beer in an effort to help breastfeed.

“Child protective services were called with allegations that, you know, there was some drinking and drugs and all that going on while in the hospital, which again makes no sense to me,” Cannon told CNN’s Piers Morgan in an interview Thursday night. “Like, how would a hospital even allow that?”

Cannon went on to say that people wanting to sell the story might have been behind the incident.

“I guess someone maybe overheard that (suggestion), and this is a good way to make a quick buck, or call the tabloids,” Cannon said. “It’s kind of sad that people think that we’ll make money off of these newborns.”

Citing confidentiality rules, the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services is not commenting.

Can you believe this!

One day after Mariah Carey delivered her twins in Los Angeles, she and husband Nick Cannon renewed their wedding vows! The couple married on April 30, 2008 – and delivered their twins – a boy and a girl – exactly three years later.

Rev. Al Sharpton conducted the renewal ceremony on Sunday – from Mariah’s hospital room. He also blessed the babies, whose names have not been released.

Just one day after welcoming twins in L.A., Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their wedding vows. The pair was married on April 30, 2008 and became parents to a boy and girl exactly three years later.

Al also Tweeted about the ceremony (does this strike anyone else as odd?)

I am just leaving Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. She had twins yesterday on their 3 rd anniversary. I had prayer with them and the babies.

I also conducted the renewal of their vows and the blessing of the newborn twins. Mariah looks GREAT, and the babies are beautiful.

I am so moved by the sincere spiritual commitment of Mariah and Nick. They have not let success separate them from GOD. I am so proud.

Copper tubs and dolphin watching: Mariah Carey’s “babymoon”

Forget honeymoon getaways. As a mommy-to-be to twins, Mariah Carey knows it’s all about the babymoon! The dazzling music artist took a few days off for relaxation before the arrival of her babies. She hung out with close friends at Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, Calif.

Mariah and her guests nestled in on 102 lush oceanside acres that afford daily dolphin sightings “the setting is so indescribably beautiful,” Mariah tells Life & Style. Terranea provided a breathtaking backdrop for playing rousing games of Taboo and Catch Phrase with her pals, nibbling on tasty treats from the Spa Café and indulging in as many relaxing spa treatments as possible.

“As my fans know, I love the ocean, and I love dolphins. But I never dreamed I’d be sitting fireside in a copper tub watching schools of wild dolphins passing by throughout the day!” gushes Mariah.

The twins are due in just a few days… and Nick and Mariah can’t wait to take them home!

What would you do for your babymoon?
