Mindy McCready's Boyfriend David Wilson Commits Suicide: Report
Mindy McCready is mourning the death of her boyfriend of two years, David Wilson, who appears to have committed suicide at his home in Heber Springs, Ark., Jan. 13.
According to the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office, the 34-year-old record producer died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead, the New York Daily News reports.
Wilson was the father of McCready's 9-month-old son, Zayne. The "Guys Do It All the Time" singer, 37, also has a 6-year-old son, Zander, with country singer Billy McKnight.
"Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children's father, David Wilson," McCready said in a statement Jan. 14. "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.
The musician added, "David loved and he was loved. Those who knew and loved him will miss him; those who did not know David missed the opportunity to know a truly loving and gifted man."
McCready, who appeared on the third season of VH1's Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, has also attempted to commit suicide multiple times in the past.
