UPDATED: Mindy McCready’s boyfriend (and father to her son) David Wilson found dead

Mindy McCready and boyfriend David Wilson together

Country singer Mindy McCready’s boyfriend and the biological father to one of her sons has passed away tragically. Songwriter and producer David Wilson, 34, was found dead over the weekend at his home in Heber Springs, Arkansas. As of yet, no cause of death has been determined.

“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,” Mindy said in a statement to Rumorfix. “He was a precious gift from God to all of us. And yesterday, he returned home and is now with his mother and father. 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.”

UPDATE – The Cleburne County Sheriff’s department has revealed David Wilson was found in his house in Heber Springs with a self-inflicted gunshot wound after emergency services and police responded to a call from an unknown source at around 6:15pm on Sunday.

Although Mindy refers to David (seen in the photo above) as her “children’s father,” David isn’t Zander’s real dad — Billy Knight is — and the custody issues surrounding him have been complicated to say the least. Either way, David had stuck by Mindy and Zander through everything, and in April of last year, they welcomed a baby boy of their own, Zayne.

Mindy, 37, has had more than her fair share of setbacks. In addition to her battles with substance that led to her appearance on the third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, Mindy was involved in a scandalous affair with baseball player Roger Clemens, had a sex tape released in 2010, has been arrested numerous times including once for a suicide attempt and another following a scuffle with her mother, and was suspected of kidnapping in 2011.

    Mindy McCready’s response shows that she can be a class act and an understanding human. I hope she and her family can recover from this and remember David in ways that remind them of the positive force he wanted to be. Clearly he did not realize how much his efforts would benefit his family. That seems so sad.

    I wonder what could have gotten him so low that he felt suicide was the only way? Man that’s awful 🙁 He was such a handsome man and a father who was needed. It’s just really sad all the way around that he chose death.

  • Jessica

    Wow….you sick, sad, rude people. Judging a person who isn’t here anymore to fight back for themselves. I’m sure he was hurting greatly to go to the extreme of suicide. I hope he has found the peace he was looking for. RIP. 🙁

  • I hope she can pull herself together and move on with her children. Each day gives you a new start; make the best of it, girl!
