RUMOR CONTROL: Mariah Carey Accused Of Drinking And Drug Use While In The Hospital
Mariah Carey was accused of drinking and doing drugs while in the hospital recently. So was it the stress of motherhood getting to her? No.....it was likely a set-up by a tabloid. Deets inside....
During an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, Nick Cannon shared that his wife, Mariah Carey, had been having trouble breastfeeding so a nurse suggested she drink a beer to speed up the process (this is a very common suggestion).
Drinking the beer helped Mariah start producing milk, but also produced a visit from the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services.
"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. Like, how would a hospital even allow that?"
So what led to the visit? Nick continued,
"I guess someone maybe overheard that (suggestion), and this is a good way to make a quick buck, or call the tabloids. It's kind of sad that people think that we'll make money off of these newborns."
SMH...it is sad. Let Mimi raise her babies in peace. She hasn't even left the hospital yet and already the tabloids are stalking her.
SIDEBAR: Nick Cannon also said that Mariah wanted a few live performance tunes from her Fantasy album played as the babies were born. As kooky as this sounds, it's classic Mimi and totally cute.
