Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Cleared of Child Abuse Allegations

By , Contributor
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have been cleared of all charges in the child abuse investigation mounted by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services after they got a call from an anonymous tipster informing them that the singer was drinking in her hospital room just hours after her twins were born.

The claim was in part true, but the new mother wasn't swilling her trademark Angel champagne but a bottle of warm Guinness, hardly supporting the claims that she was "boozing it up." The nurses at Los Angeles' Cedar Sinai hospital, where Monroe and Morocco Cannon were born, advised Carey that drinking the strong ale would help her breast milk to begin flowing.

Sources say the singer never tried to hide what she was doing and was forthcoming when social workers carried on an investigation. After a home visit with Carey's lawyer Laura Wasser in attendance (if the name seems familiar, it's because Maria Shriver just hired her as her divorce lawyer) the case has been closed.

If anyone had any beef with Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon, it should have been for cruelty to animals after the couple took their four dogs to the hospital for the birth of the twins.
