Yes, her boyfriend killed himself a few weeks ago, and there was speculation that she was involved somehow (like Courtney love/ kobain).

What a poorly written story at the link. She's dead, and the first words of the story are "It's been a difficult month for Mindy McCready" (I'll say!). And then it says she last tweeted in January, but the tweet is actually from January 2012.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. She had all the advantages and resources necessary to clean up and treat her depression, and she chose not to, to the detriment of her children.
It's fortunate that she didn't take her kids with her; hopefully they can get enough counseling to live semi-normal lives.

She was a teen when she had an affair with Clemons. Way underage.
A sad and heartbreaking outcome, but not shocking considering her past. It sounds like her way into the disgusting world was paved by an MLB asshole.

R10 is, of course, an unnaturally crude and confused person.
Blame the ill. Assume advantage for mere wealth. Ignore the facts of psychological illness and addiction. And, of course, accuse a mother killing herself, after the fact, of perhaps having been thwarted in an impulse to kill her children.
Something as small as what resides in R10 should be called something other than humanity, and to call it beastly insults beasts.

If only she had taken her Glaxo(TM) as she was told to do multiple times on camera on my acclaimed show, Celebrity Rehab.
I was tireless in encouraging her to take her Glaxo(TM) and as I explained to her, Glaxo(TM) is a lifesaver. Glaxo(TM) can help BUT ONLY IF THE PATIENT ALLOWS Glaxo(TM) TO WORK.
I am heartbroken that Mindy did not follow my directive to take Glaxo(TM).
Glaxo(TM) could have saved her life.
If you or anyone you know is feeling depressed, take Glaxo(TM) as soon as you are able to.
Consult your Glaxo(TM) dispensing physician.
Again, I repeat.

But r10 is right, she had resources many do not.
Why is r10 expected to cry for her?

Oh R15, just shut up. Please. Just shut up. YOU (meaning people just like you) ALWAYS show up in any thread where someone with depression or mental illness commits suicide. Are you the fucking "compassion police?" Yes, we get it, it's NEVER the dead person's fault. It's the illness. Or the alcohol or the drugs that did it. The dead person, who leaves a trail of tears and scars everyone who ever knew her, is NEVER at fault in any way. Ever ever ever, right? And we are just supposed to go "That poor special snowflake!" Well, this chick had little children. And leaving them is the cruelest, most selfish thing a mother could do. And I, for one, am just a little tired of making out all these suicides as nothing but the tragic victims of forces beyond their control. Sometimes people DO know what they are doing. They just don't care.

What I never understand in suicide or drug overdose deaths, there is all this hand wringing (like r15) about it. Illness, dependency, etc...
But like I said a year ago with Whitney's death, no one forced her or anyone to take the drugs the first time. Sure, people get dependent on them but the real issue is the lack of strength or character that allows the entry of a drug.
Followed by the incessant lying and denying.
You want people to stay out of your business and quit bothering and caring about you, own it. I'm a crackhead. Gonna be a crackhead till the day I die, which will likely be imminent.
People wanted Whitney to get better. Mindy too. People can retain their care and the death will be less tragic, if one quits lying and denying.
Mindy's kids could have been in safe environment and prepped for their mother's demise, if she came clean.
If she was honest and open and said, my boyfriend's dead, I loved him and miss him more than my children. I know I'll attempt suicide for a 3rd time, (One time while pregnant). Take the kids, prep them, I'm not long for this world.
That would be the selfless, though still extremely selfish act of a mother concerned for her children.
Frankly, I think she was a fucking bitch. Way to show your kids your cared, you fucking bitch.

That's selfish. The person who kills themselves is in immense pain. People who are angry in the aftermath are selfish pricks. 'Please live in pain so I can be happy.' Get over it. It's not all about you. The person couldn't take it anymore. Suicide is not selfish.

Those of you snarking on Dr. Drew (and I am no fan) have to realize this: He's not responsible for their deaths. He never guaranteed they were going to be "saved." No mental-health practitioner can make that guarantee.
The program was essentially the equivalent of a clinical trial for people with Stage 3 cancer. You know, going in, that some are going to make it; some aren't. Prognosis not great. If you're sick and hope to get well, it's best not to be that far along when you show up for treatment.

He's a despicable charlatan and the bullshit he spouts about addicts being permanently damaged and fundamentally different from "normal" people for as long as they inhale oxygen on this planet does NOTHING to help with these individuals' mental health issues, to say the absolute least.
Of course, Dr. Drew and his ilk will chalk this one up (as they did with all the others, I'm sure) to "the reality of the disease," because "Higher Power" knows that their theories NEVER fail.

Apparently Mindy's mother (had custody of the kids for four years) was in a cult and was a nutcase, all the kids (McCready & brothers/sisters) left home when they could. I wonder what her siblings are saying? There's so much to this story - the drama that surrounded her life was endless. She probably couldn't get away from it even if she wanted to; sometimes drama sucks you in and you never escape.

It's difficult to say, but the kids may have been her saving grace. It's being reported that a major reason for her spiral is the fact that the kids were taken away from her. If they were still in her family's custody, she may have found the strength to keep going. Very sad situation.
