Alleged former flame Roger Clemens and celebrity therapist Dr. Drew have each issued statements regarding Mindy McCready’s suicide.
While in spring training as a special instructor with the Houston Astros, Roger handed reporters a written statement saying, “She was trying to get peace and direction in her life.” He added that Mindy and her management were “extremely nice” the “few times” he saw her.
Dr. Drew also issued a statement via VH1.com: “My heart goes out to Mindy’s family and children… Although I have not treated her for few years, I had reached out to her recently upon hearing about the apparent suicide of her boyfriend and father of her younger children… Although she was fearful of stigma and ridicule, she agreed with me that she needed to make her health and safety a priority. Unfortunately, it seems that Mindy did not sustain her treatment.”
Mindy made headlines in 2008 when she revealed she'd had a relationship with Roger and that they had met a karaoke bar in Florida when she was 15 and he was 28 and married. Roger has denied her story.
Dr. Drew treated Mindy in 2009 on the VH1 series Celebrity Rehab.
