This news totally shocked us and makes us feel so bad for new mami Mariah Carey and her protective hubby, Nick Cannon. Apparently, the couple got an unpleasant visit from the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services while they were still in the hospital recovering from the birth of their twins Monroe and Moroccan.

Cannon was understandably upset when the officers visited the couple in the office, which may have just served to escalate the situation. A source for Radaronline.com said, "Unfortunately Nick was extremely angry when DCFS officials attempted to interview Mariah, which just escalated the situation. His anger didn't help the situation."

"Under California law, anytime there is any allegation made involving the welfare and safety of a child, DCFS is required to investigate," explains the source. "Mariah was extremely cooperative with DCFS and answered all the questions. Mariah understood why Nick was upset. He was just trying to protect her, and the twins."

Nickwent public about the allegations on Piers Morgan's new CNN show over the weekend, saying:

"Recently, the Child Protective Services were called with allegations that there was some drinking and drugs and all that going on, wild in the hospital, which makes no sense to me - how would a hospital allow that? It all started when a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness, the dark beer, the yeast improves breastfeeding… I don't know if someone heard that, but then they were saying my wife was drinking beer. People will do anything to try to conjure up a story. Then when I spoke to the person from Child Protection Services, (they said), 'This is ridiculous, we're going to make sure this isn't the case'. To even have to deal with that, my wife in the state that she's in, 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."

Wow, we hope this gets cleared up as soon as possible and Mariah is able to rest at home with the kiddies without so much drama!
