In a Thursday (May 12) interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Cannon said someone called Child Protective Services on Carey after she drank some dark beer. Cannon says Mariah drank the Guinness at the suggestion of a nurse, who said the beer would help with breastfeeding.  

“I don’t know if someone overheard that [suggestion], but people will do anything to conjure up a story,” said Cannon.

Carey gave birth to the twins in May. She and the babies remain in the hospital.
