Father Of Mindy McCready’s Infant Son Commits Suicide

There is no end to the drama in Mindy McCready‘s life. Very sad news now as Fox News has reported that the often troubled singers boyfriend, David Wilson, died yesterday of a self inflicted gunshot wound. Wilson, age 34 was the father of Mindy’s  9-month old son Zayne. McCready released a statement yesterday regarding the death of her infant son’s 34-year-old father, but the cause of death was not revealed until today. Read Mindy’s public statement here…

Mindy released the following statement to FOX411:

“Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children’s father, David Wilson,, David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne. He was a precious gift from God to all of us and, yesterday, he returned home and is now with his mother and father.”

She was so talented, beautiful, and super funny. She was so easy to like, quick-witted and not all full of herself, even though at the time her star was rocketing and she was on her way to stardom for sure. We hung out one whole day, playing paintball war, and later went out for dinner & drinks.

When Mindy’s life began to crumble, due to poor choices in men and drug use, I prayed that she would get her life back on track. Sadly, that has never seemed to happen, and over the years she was involved in one legal drama after another, most due to her drug addiction. Some may recall seeing Mindy in recent years with Dr. Drew Pinski on Celebrity Rehab.

My heart goes out to Mindy and her children during this difficult time, and I will be keeping her in my thoughts and prayers.
