Tiffany Thornton

My Hubby's a Drunk

Just Ask His Mom

Disney star Tiffany Thornton did NOT abduct her two baby sons -- she ran away to protect them from their alcoholic dad ... his own mother tells TMZ.

Musician Chris Carney filed a child stealing report with cops, alleging "The Sonny With A Chance" star abducted their 3-month old and 20-month old boys with the help of his mom, Ruth Carney.

Ruth tells us ... her son has a big drinking problem and recently went to rehab.  She says he relapsed recently and "went crazy."

Ruth -- who is the mayor of Hot Springs, Arkansas -- was in L.A. to help Tiffany with the baby, and says when she saw her son acting crazy and drunk, she took Tiffany and the kids and hightailed it out of town to the home of Tiffany's parents in Texas.

Ruth claims Chris knew exactly what was going on during the entire drive, because Tiffany FaceTimed with him daily.  She says he was upset.

Chris tells us ... he's not an alcoholic, but rather a social drinker.  He says his mom simply freaked out when she saw a beer in the fridge.

In Chris' view his mom is anything but nurturing, calling her an accessory to a felony.

Damn she was so hot as the stuck up girl on Sonny With A Chance. Now she looks like she wears big panties.

Obviously the guy has a drinking problem or else his mom and wife wouldn't have taken the kids and left the situation.

The first step he needs to take is to man up and admit he has a drinking problem and then do the right thing and either quit drinking or get help to help him stop drinking.

All drunks lie through their teeth, especially the ones in celebritydom. He's a drunk. No one "freaks out" over a beer in the fridge. Sell your lies elsewhere booze hound. You just got out of rehab.

The fact that his mom is conspiring against him is pretty damning.

I hope that he gets the help he needs after reading the particular s of the story I've gotta ask why go to rehab if you don't have a problem? Mom n wife were justified he relapsed.Grow up ,get off the sauce & enjoy being a husband.father & son man.Revel in the many blessings GOD has afforded you with.

If his mom and his wife thinks he is a drunk he probably is. More families should help each other like this. Not just to protect the babies. But to get him the help he obviously needs so he can be a father

Hello Chris!!! If YOUR own mother is helping your wife get away from you, then there is a problem. But as usual, most alcoholics don't see it..

You can just see he's a drunk. No child should have to be around that.

Wow ...    

If his own mother is concerned about his drinking, he needs to face reality, It isn't just a husband/wife dispute. Unless there is a court order preventing her from leaving town, she can do what she wants. But I'd get to the police station stat and file papers in court, to make it official.

Legally, she had every right to take the children. You can't kidnap your own kid, unless you're hiding them.
