Mariah Carey Cleared In Child Protective Services Booze Investigation
The Child Protection Services investigation against Mariah Carey has been dropped.
Mariah Carey is no longer under the scrutiny of child protective services. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has determined that there is no merit to the investigation launched after the department received a tip that the pop singer drank beer while breastfeeding in the hospital.
The singer and husband Nick Cannon — who became parents to son Moroccan Scott and daughter Monroe on April 30 — were shocked when an anonymous tip to the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family (DCFS) accused her of putting the babies at risk by drinking alcohol and taking drugs in her hospital room.
Mariah — who brought the babies home from hospital two weeks ago — admitted to investigators she drank a Guinness but only on the advice of medical staff who informed her a dark beer would help with lactation.
Laura Wasser — a lawyer for the singer — was present during questioning before the DCFS decided not to pursue the matter, website TMZ reports.
