Carey’s husband actor Nick Cannon said a nurse suggested she drink a little dark beer to aid breastfeeding. So Carey drank a small amount.

Child Protective Services were called by someone who claimed Carey was abusing her children by drinking alcohol and breastfeeding.

“I guess someone maybe overheard that (suggestion), and this is a good way to make a quick buck, or call the tabloids,” Cannon said. “It’s kind of sad that people think that we’ll make money off of these newborns.”

Carey delivered  son Moroccan Scott and daughter Monroe Cannon two weeks ago.
