While still in hospital, the singer was visited by Child Protective Services.
Not surprisingly, Nick Cannon restored the truth on CNN. He explained on Thursday on Piers Morgan’s show that the story was “ridiculous.”
“It all started when a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, the dark beer, the yeast improves breastfeeding,” Cannon described. “I don’t know if someone heard that [and] were saying my wife was drinking beer. People will do anything to try to conjure up a story.”
The young father was outraged by the case: “To even have to deal with that, with my wife in the state that she’s in while we’re in the hospital, to even have to think about someone possibly wanting to investigate your children. It’s sad at the end of the day…when you think about people trying to make a buck off newborn babies.”
In the end, Mariah Carey won’t be prosecuted for child abuse.
