Mccready's Mum Is Convinced Overdose Was Suicide Attempt
Mindy McCready's mum has "absolutely no doubt" the country star tried to take her own life on Tuesday (25May10), alleging the singer has made seven previous suicide attempts.
The 34 year old, who has a history of alcohol and drug abuse, sparked speculation of an overdose after her mum Gayle called for emergency services to take the star to Cape Coral Hospital in Florida.
The star has played down the overdose reports, but Gayle claims Mindy has made "seven suicide attempts" before and she's adamant this was another desperate measure.
She tells UsMagazine.com, "She was sitting up on her computer (when I found her), but she was completely talking out of her head...
"The last conversation we had was over a suicide note, but there wasn't one... Mindy is very, very sick. There's absolutely no doubt (she tried to kill herself)."
The Ten Thousand Angels hitmaker is attempting to ban her mum from speaking to the press - she launched a lawsuit against Gayle to prevent her from giving "erroneous information to the media".
