Mindy McCready's ex-boyfriend and the father of her 6-year-old son said Monday morning that he wasn't surprised when he heard that the troubled country singer had apparently taken her own life. "As sad as it is, it didn't come as a major shock," Billy McKnight told the Today show. "She's just been battling demons for so long." He added, "I was around her when she attempted suicide twice, so I knew it was in her." Cleburne County, Arkansas, sheriff's deputies responded to a report of gunshots Sunday at 3:31 p.m. and discovered McCready's body on the front porch of her Heber Springs house. »
