» Mindy McCready reportedly took her life
At 37 years old Mindy McCready has had a troubled life. Her successes and troubles have been much documented over the years. Today it appears that her troubles have gotten the better of her. Twitter feeds from many country stars are lamenting the apparent suicide of Mindy. In her younger years, she was a budding country star who could draw a crowd with her singing and with her looks. ”Guys Do It All The Time” was one of those songs that just made you turn up the stereo in the car. Her first CD 10,000 Angels went multi platinum and it appear she had it all.
However, she also had a bit of a dark side. In November 2011 she violated a court order when she didn’t bring her then 5-year-old son, Zander, back home to Florida after a visit. Just a little over a month ago, her boyfriend, David Wilson, passed at the age of 34 with no cause of death or details surrounding his passing being revealed, however continues to be investigated. Eonline Reports:
After denying any involvement with Wilson’s death, McCready’s two children, Zander, 6, and Zayne, 9-months-old, were taken from the singer’s Heber Springs, Ark., home by authorities. “Mindy needs to get help and we all care and love her and we want her to get the right help so she can move on. She is in a bad state right now, depressed and unhappy. It is not good,” a source told E! News when the children were removed.
That was the point when McCready decided to enter an in-patient facility for treatment. “Since boyfriend (David Wilson) shot himself she has been in bed for 3 wks,” her father said in court documents. “Sleeps all day. Drinks all night and is taking Rx drugs. Not bathing or even helping take care of her 2 children.”
Several reports indicate that she may shot herself today. A source close to the 37-year-old tells us her body was found in Heber Springs, Ark.
More news will be forth coming.
