Scammer calls social worker on Mariah Carey

In Breaking News, Celebrity News on May 13, 2011 at 6:45 pm

New parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got a hospital visit from a social worker this week, according to Cannon, after someone complained that Carey was abusing her newborn twins by consuming alcohol and drugs while breastfeeding.

Husband Nick Cannon said Thursday that the situation may have been triggered by a nurse’s suggestion that a small amount of dark beer could help Carey’s breastfeeding — and Cannon added that it all could have been the work of a scammer trying to sell a story to tabloids.

Carey and her twins, born two weeks ago, remain hospitalized while she recovers from a Caesarean delivery and the babies are treated in a neonatal intensive care unit.

“Child protective services were called with allegations that, you know, there was some drinking and drugs and all that going on while in the hospital, which again makes no sense to me,” Cannon told CNN’s Piers Morgan in an interview to air Thursday night. “Like, how would a hospital even allow that?”

In an interview Thursday with A.J. Hammer to air on HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight,” Cannon said the social worker approached him in the hospital hallway, saying “they were here to see me because there had been allegations that there was drug and alcohol use, not only during the stay in the hospital.”

The trigger for the social worker’s visit Tuesday was apparently a suggestion by a nurse that Carey drink “a small amount of Guinness, the dark beer, that it improves the yeast for breastfeeding or the yeast improves breastfeeding,” Cannon said. Carey consumed a small amount, following the nurse’s suggestion, according to Cannon.

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

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services would not comment, citing confidentiality rules.


Pakistan suicide bombs kill 80 to avenge bin Laden

In Breaking News, World News on May 13, 2011 at 3:14 pm

HABQADAR, Pakistan – A pair of Taliban suicide bombers attacked paramilitary police recruits eagerly heading home for a break after months of training, killing 80 people Friday in the first act of retaliation for the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

In claiming responsibility, the al-Qaida linked militant group cited anger at Pakistan’s military for failing to stop the American incursion on their soil.

The blasts in the northwest were a reminder of the savagery of Islamist insurgents in Pakistan. Tensions also have risen between the U.S. and Islamabad over allegations that some elements of Pakistani security forces had been harboring bin Laden, who died in a May 2 raid in Abbottabad, a garrison town about three hours’ drive from the scene of the bombing.

The World Celebrates Katherine Hepburn’s Birthday

In Breaking News, Celebrity News on May 13, 2011 at 4:31 am

One-hundred-four years ago on May 12, a legend was born. Katherine Hepburn was a trailblazer, a firebrand of a woman who refused to be a follower. She was born into a wealthy Connecticut family and enjoyed the privileges of her parents’ wealth. Her mother was suffragist, her father a urologist and co-founder of Planned Parenthood, a recent target of Republican ire.

Hepburn was more than just an actress. She was a model for women who desired independence from the status quo. She was defiant against outdated traditions and was a devout atheist. Perhaps her disbelief in a deity stemmed back to the day when, as a 14-year-old girl, she found her beloved older brother dead from an apparent suicide. She was fiercely loyal, and she memorialized him in her own way. For years after, she used his birthdate—November 8—as her own.

Eminem Admits He ‘Almost Died’ From Drug Overdose

Eminem almost died.

The iconic MC tells Vibe magazine in its forthcoming issue that during a relapse, he overdosed on pills he acquired from an “acquaintance” and almost became one of music’s greatest casualties.

“My doctor told me those mysterious new pills were methadone, which is used to wean heroin addicts off dope,” he told the mag in its forthcoming “Real Rap” issue.

“Had I known it was methadone, I probably wouldn’t have taken it. But as bad as I was back then, I can’t even say 100 percent for sure. My doctor told me the amount of methadone I’d taken was equivalent to shooting up four bags of heroin. Even when they told me I almost died, it didn’t click.”

Em admitted to the publication that he was an addict and through his uncontrolled dependence, he began to identify with his mother, with whom he’s had several public battles over the last decade.

“It’s no secret I had a drug problem,” he said. “If I was to give you a number of Vicodin I would actually take in a day? Anywhere between 10 to 20. Valium, Ambien, the numbers got so high I don’t even know what I was taking.”After suffering a knee injury that required surgery, he was not prescribed painkillers, which led him to search his house for drugs he’d hidden.

Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to House Arrest

After pleading no-contest to the charges in an L.A. court Wednesday, Lohan is sentenced to 2 weeks of house arrest.

“It appears a person like Ms. Lohan will be eligible for home detention,” a spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department tells People.

The spokesperson explained that house arrest is a common solution for nonviolent offenders without a serious history of crime, a category that would include Lohan. Home detention would bypass the problem of jail overcrowding — the primary reason that Lohan’s previous jail sentence was reduced from 90 days to 14. However, says the rep, Lohan would probably still get a reduced sentence. His guess? Just two weeks under house arrest.

Lohan, who was not present at today’s hearing, seems content with the plea deal. In a statement delivered by her lawyer, Lohan says: “I am glad to be able to put this past me and move on with my life and my career. I support the judge’s decision and hold myself accountable for being in this situation.”

So is Judge Stephanie Sautner, who sentenced Lohan to those 120 days in jail, cool with this possibility? She stated in the last hearing that she was obligated to alleviate jail crowding and “would not oppose” house arrest. And she was realistic about the time that Lindsay was likely to serve.

In Breaking News, Celebrity News on May 11, 2011 at 10:19 pm

“After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship,” they say in a joint statement.”

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, have separated, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us,” the couple told the Times in a statement. “After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.”

Schwarzenegger and Shriver have been married for 25 years. Shriver has moved out of their Brentwood home, and the two are now deciding what their next steps will be.

“We are continuing to parent our four children together,” the couple added. “They are the light and the center of both of our lives. We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”

Rapper Common to Visit the White House

President Obama invites rapper Common to a ‘Celebration of American Poetry’ at the White House Wednesday.

Rapper Common

Some feel President Obama should have bypassed inviting Common considering the rapper had harsh words for President George W. Bush in the past.

The event is titled “Celebration of American Poetry,” and its part of a White House series of cultural evenings loosely structured around music. The series has already included performances devoted to country, classical, and Motown.
