New York: Newly blessed celebrity parents Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey seem to be finding it difficult to cope with allegations that the couple indulged in drinking and drugs inside the hospital.

"The Child Protective Services were called with allegations that there was some drinking and drugs and all that going on while in the hospital," a website quoted Cannon as saying during a pre-taped appearance on ‘Piers Morgan Tonight.’

Just less than two weeks have passed since they were blessed with twins but the rumours have already started doing the rounds.

According to Cannon, 30, false rumours began when "a nurse suggested to my wife that if you drink Guinness … the yeast improves breast-feeding."

"I don’t know if someone overheard that," he explained.

"But then they were saying that my wife was drinking beer and all this stuff," he added.

"When I spoke to the person from the Child Protective Services, I was like, ``This is ridiculous,``" Cannon, ‘The 92.3 NOW’ morning show host, recalled.

Cannon said that the hospital stay has also been plagued by intrusive photographers ‘actually in the hospital posing as different people, or real employees trying to get pictures of our kids’.
