Not the feel-good story of the holidays: Singer Mindy McCready, forever linked to Roger Clemens following reports of an affair between the two, was hospitalized in an apparent suicide attempt the morning, according to a police spokeswoman.

McCready was taken to a Nashville-area hospital for treatment of wounds to her wrists, according to the spokeswoman and two people close to the troubled singer. Police and paramedics were called to a Nashville home where McCready was staying and immediately transported her to a hospital.

“We responded to a '10-63,' that's a suicidal person call. Mindy McCready was at the house,” said Kris Mumford, a Nashville Police Department spokeswoman. “Apparently she called the mother of her roommate and said some things that caused the mother concern. She called authorities. We responded with paramedics, who took her to a local hospital.”


The troubles just never seem to end in recent times for the country singer, who reportedly met Clemens when she was 16, the two beginning an affair a couple of years later. She has been in and out of rehab several times in recent years, and just finished serving a 30-day jail sentence for a probation violation stemming from an assault conviction in 2007. This wouldn't be the first time she's attempted suicide, sadly.
