Mindy McCready Commits Suicide
Over the last few years we’ve seen several shocking and bizarre stories about Mindy McCready, the ’90s hitmaker that gave us ‘Ten Thousand Angels’ and ‘Guys Do It All The Time.’ Now, NashvilleCountryClub.com and several sources, like MYFOX8.com, are reporting that the 37 year-old singer has committed suicide.
McCready’s troubles came to a climax when her 34 year-old boyfriend David Wilson was found dead in January. McCready was recently committed to a mental health treatment facility after speculation and investigation that she may have had a role in Wilson’s death.
It was just last year that Mindy McCready and David Wilson welcomed their first child together, Zayne (pictured above). At the time, McCready already had a 6 year-old named Zander, who was in the middle of a highly publicized custody battle.
McCready lived a tragic life, from drug and alcohol addiction, several scrapes with the law, sueing her mother, domestic violence reports, kidnapping charges, and an affair with baseball player Roger Clemens (that started when she was 15).
According to TasteofCountry.com, on Sunday, February 17 NBC News’s Andrea Canning tweeted, “Just got a call from Mindy McCready’s best friend that she shot and killed herself this evening. My heart breaks for her two boys. RIP.”
