Country music singer Mindy McCready has committed suicide, according to FOX 17 and multiple other reports.

Stacy McCloud, a reporter at FOX 17 in Nashville, tweeted:

“A close family friend of Mindy McCready has informed me that the country singer has committed suicide.”

A short time later she tweeted:

“The Mindy McCready suicide I told you about has now been confirmed from 4 different sources. A statement from the family is in the works.”

Andrea Canning, a correspondent for NBC News, is also reporting McCready committed suicide on Sunday. Canning said a family friend told her that McCready “shot and killed herself this evening.”

McCready, who was an American country music singer, was born on Nov. 30, 1975. She recorded five studio albums, including her debut album Ten Thousand Angels back in 1996. McCready gained notoriety back in 2008 when her relationship with Roger Clemens was made public.

This poor woman seemed so emotionally tormented.  I’m not a huge country music fan at all, but I saw her on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew several years ago, and could tell things were probably not going to improve for her.  Throughout the most recent years, her life seemingly kept taking turns for the worse.
