Mariah Carey Twins Probe -- Case Closed

5/26/2011 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services has just wrapped up its interview with Mariah Carey and has concluded there is no merit to the investigation -- sources connected with DCFS tell TMZ.

We're told DCFS social workers interviewed Mariah and spent time with the twins -- and concluded the children were in a healthy and safe environment.

The investigation was triggered by an anonymous phone call to DCFS complaining that Mariah drank a Guinness beer while she was breast feeding.

As we reported, Mariah was informed by a hospital staffer that drinking a dark beer would assist her in lactating.  We're told Mariah informed social workers she simply followed the hospital staffer's advice and drank the Guinness, never hiding the fact that she consumed the drink.

We're told Mariah's lawyer, Laura Wasser, was present during the DCFS interview today.

Our DCFS sources say officials have concluded there is no merit to the complaint.

DCSF came to the hospital while she and the twins were there, this investigation didn't start at home.

oh good grief... it's nice to live in a country where "issues" like this use up our time... unlike the rest of the world. Being spoiled must free up a lot of time to waste, I guess.

thank god this probe which was useless in the first place is closed. all that ratfink of a nurse that ratted on Mariah wanted was 15 minutes of fame at the expense of a new mother. this never would've happened to Melissa Newman Or Natasha Richardson because their parents would've sued for invasion of privacy and emotional suffering.

That's the problem with the world today. Get P'o'ed with someone and make a call that they are abusing their kids to get even. You are anonymous, you never have to answer to the allegations just go ahead and do it. In the meantime, EVERY Child Welfare agency is strained past it's limits and all because of B.S..

I don't like Mariah, or Nick, but hello, if she drank a beer in the hospital which employee gave it to her? Those are the ones that should be investigated. How sad!!!

Drinking LOTS, lots of water is the ONLY way to help getting lots of milk when breastfeeding and a good diet and not giving up.

Many lactation consultants give this advice. My SIL drank a beer a day while breast feeding all three of her children it isn't like drinking while pregnant. The beer doesn't go straight to the milk supply. I can't believe they wasted time and energy and money on this investigation. I hope Mariah told them to f**k themselves at least once.

I think it's really sad that people are all in her business.You know people can just make stuff up and call those people and could call all kinds of trouble when there wasn't any to be begin with because someone is just so mean to lie and make things up..

a woman who is breastfeeding can have beer (one) as it helps stimulate the production of milk.
