It's a good thing Mindy McCready is a country singer, because I really don't know what other profession is allowed to have a life this crazy and dramatic. Mindy tried to commit suicide back in 2008. She also appeared on Celebrity Rehab to try and kick her addiction demons. Then she kidnapped her own son from her own parents. Then she had a son with her "soulmate," David Wilson, but he died suddenly earlier this month from a gunshot wound that some are wondering if Mindy herself didn't inflict.
Mindy opened up to NBC's Dateline about her boyfriend's death. She has said that he committed suicide. But there have been rumors that Mindy might not be a victim after all.
When asked point blank if she had anything to do with Wilson's death, Mindy says:
Oh my God, no. Oh my God, no. He was my life. We were each other's life.
Why would Mindy be a suspect in some people's minds? Because reportedly David might have been having an affair. It was the National Enquirer that printed that accusation from a "source":
David had been carrying on an affair for many weeks before the shooting. When Mindy found out, it fueled a lot of very heated fights. The tension in their household became so unbearable that David packed up and left.
When asked about this, Mindy replied:
David was not having an affair with another woman. That is absolutely totally untrue.
However, when asked if she was "100 percent sure" that Wilson committed suicide and wasn't murdered, she replies, "I don't know."
What we do know is that there is an investigation still open and that the death has not yet officially been labeled a suicide. Said the county sheriff:
It could take weeks for the state crime lab to complete tests on Mr. Wilson's body, and if you'll notice, it was Mindy McCready's spokesperson -- not anyone involved in the investigation -- who made the determination that Mr. Wilson's death was due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Maybe Mindy's full interview on Dateline will clear some things up. Like how come Mindy might think it was murder if she was the only one with Wilson the day he died, as some reports have claimed? Or was she the only one with him? Was she really with him at all? So confusing.
It must be terrible to be suspected as having anything to do with your child's father's death if you didn't. So I guess I can see why Mindy is speaking out. But only time will tell what really happened here.
Here's a portion of Mindy's interview, as shown on Today.
