Ugh! So absurd, but we just hope this mess is wrapped up shortly.
Even though there have been "absolutely no findings that either Mariah or Nick were doing anything illegal, or that could place the twins in danger", the law requires a full investigation when a child is allegedly in jeopardy.
Nick was reportedly VERY upset (and who wouldn't be) about the allegations and may have escalated the situation inadvertently by protesting the legitimacy of the DCFS investigation, but a source explained:
"Under California law, anytime there is any allegation made involving the welfare and safety of a child, DCFS is required to investigate. Mariah was extremely cooperative with DCFS and answered all the questions. Mariah understood why Nick was upset. He was just trying to protect her, and the twins."
We think any parent would react the same way as Nick, especially due to the ridiculous nature of the accusation, so we can't blame him for being upset.
The source continued to explain the couple may have one more visit to look forward to once they are at home with the twins, but "that decision will be made by the social worker assigned to the case."
Hopefully the social worker realizes he or she is wasting their time and moves onto to a more important case.
