entertainment Updated: May 30, 2011 18:56 IST

Singer Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon have been cleared of charges of drinking near their newborn twins.

The investigation by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) was triggered by an anonymous phone call to DCFS complaining that Mariah drank a Guinness beer while she was breast feeding. Officials concluded that the children are in a healthy and safe environment, reports

MariahMariah was informed by a hospital staffer that drinking a dark beer would assist her in lactating. She informed social workers she simply followed the hospital staffer's advice and drank the Guinness, never hiding the fact.

Mariah's lawyer, Laura Wasser, was present during the DCFS interview.

DCFS sources said officials have concluded there is no merit in the complaint.
