A little over a week after taking home their twin babies, new parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are fielding visits from the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services. 

 

The Los Angeles Department of Health and Human Services reportedly received a call claiming Carey was doing drugs and sipping on alcohol while at the hospital.  

 

Although, social workers formerly interviewed the singer today in regards to those concerns, hubby Nick Cannon is unconcerned. The actor and comedian has already gone on CNN to defend his boo and provide a theory on what might have happened.

He told Piers Morgan that a nurse suggested that his wife drink a little Guinness beer to help with the breast feeding. "I don't know if someone heard that or however it took, but I guess then they were saying that my wife was drinking beer and all that stuff," said Cannon. "People will do anything to try to conjure up a story." 

 

Carey, gave birth to twins, a girl named Monroe and a boy named Moroccan on April 30 and took them home May 14.
