Mariah was only sipping on a Guinness, after a nurse told her it would help with breastfeeding twins Moroccan and Monroe.
But someone in the maternity unit reported Mariah to child protective services — claiming she was guzzling alcohol and popping pain pills!
The drama unfolded on May 12 when an official arrived at Mariah’s hospital bedside, where she has been staying with ‘Roc and ‘Roe since they were born on April 30.
“Child protective services were called with allegations that there was some drinking and drugs going on while in the hospital,” Nick Cannon, 30, revealed on Piers Morgan Tonight.
“Which makes no sense – how would a hospital allow that?”
“It all started when a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink a small amount of Guinness the yeast improves breastfeeding. I don’t know if someone overheard that, but then they were saying my wife was drinking beer. People would do anything to conjure up a story.”
According to Showbiz411, the sneaky snitch hoped to sell out Mariah, 42, to a tabloid for money!
The couple soon smoothed things out with child services — but how stressful for the new parents! That’s the last thing Mariah needs while she’s nursing two premature newborns!
