Why is this in the burnt orange board you ask? Well.... If you remember, reports are that former Longhorn Roger Clemens began dating McCready when she was 15 years old. NEver proven true or false but lot's of speculation out there about the nature of the relationship.


The sad news is she is dead, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. I dodn't know much about her personal life but it looks like she had some tough times.


From her Wikipedia page...


Personal lifeIn 1997, McCready became engaged to actor Dean Cain.[8] The couple broke up the following year.[9]

McCready also dated former NHL hockey player Drake Berehowsky.[10]

In May 2005, McCready's ex-boyfriend, Billy McKnight, was arrested and charged with attempted murder after beating and choking her.[4][11] After reporting to People magazine that she had cut ties with her abuser, McCready was found unconscious the following July, in a hotel lobby in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida, after attempting suicide. She was hospitalized for a drug overdose after washing down a large amount of undisclosed drugs with alcohol.[12] That September, when she was pregnant with McKnight's child, she attempted suicide again by overdosing on antidepressants.[13]

On March 25, 2006, McCready gave birth to a son, Zander Ryan McCready.[14]

On December 17, 2008, paramedics were called to McCready's Nashville home after an apparent suicide attempt; they transported her to a hospital after finding wounds on her wrists.[15]

McCready appeared in the third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, which aired in January and February 2010 and depicting her struggle with substance addiction.[16] She later discussed her recovery and possible studio work with Todd Gaither on a March 2010 episode of The View.

A pornographic videotape of McCready and an ex-boyfriend referred to as "Peter"[17] went on sale by Vivid Entertainment in 2010.[18]

On May 25, 2010, McCready was hospitalized in Cape Coral, Florida, for a possible drug overdose; she may have had a reaction to Darvocet her mother had given her.[19] She was released later that day and returned home.[20]

On April 9, 2012, McCready gave birth to her second child, a son named Zayne.[21] The child's father, record producer David Wilson, was found dead in his home on January 13, 2013, of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.[22][23][24] Following Wilson's death, McCready released a statement in which she referred to him as her "soulmate" and "life partner".[23][24]

Roger Clemens affair


In April 2008, the New York Daily News reported on a possible long-term relationship between McCready and baseball star Roger Clemens that began when she was 15.[25]

Clemens' attorney Rusty Hardin denied the affair, stating that Clemens would bring a defamation suit regarding this false allegation. Clemens' attorney admitted that a relationship existed, but described McCready as a "close family friend." He also stated that McCready had traveled on Clemens' personal jet and that Clemens' wife was aware of the relationship.[25] Clemens issued a statement saying only that "I have made mistakes in my personal life for which I am sorry."[26] McCready described the relationship as being sexual in nature.[27]

On November 17, 2008, McCready spoke in more detail to Inside Edition about her affair with Clemens. She stated that their relationship lasted for more than a decade, ending when Clemens refused to leave his wife to marry McCready. However, she denied that she was 15 when it began; she said they met when she was 16 and the relationship only became sexual "several years later".[28]
