Country singer Mindy McCready has passed away, Celeb Dirty Laundry has confirmed. What a sad, sad day for the world of celebrity news. As you may already know, Mindy was a very troubled lady. She’s had her kids taken away, has attempted suicide several times before and her ex-boyfriend was found dead in January from suicide. Such a tragedy for her children. TMZ reports:
The father of McGready’s youngest child, record producer David Wilson, was found dead in his home on January 13 of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
McCready’s two children were removed from her home by a judge on February 6 and she was committed to a to a treatment facility for a mental-health and alcohol-abuse evaluation. She was released two days later.
McCready had attempted suicide twice before — once in 2005 and again in 2008. She also made several trips to rehab and appeared in 2010 on the VH1 reality show “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.”
So sad. Let’s hope that her children are able to get through this terrible tragedy. We really feel for them in this sad situation. Celeb Dirty Laundry extends our words of condolences to Mindy’s family and friends during this horrible, tough time.
