Mindy McCready Hospitalized; Overdose to Blame?

by at . Comments

Mindy McCready was hospitalized in Cape Coral, Fla., for a possible drug overdose earlier this morning, according to reports. Her condition is unknown.

The troubled country star's rep denied that she OD'd on drugs, but rather she just had a bad reaction to a painkiller, to which her mother "overreacted."

Brent Young, Mindy's rep, told TMZ she broke her toe two days ago and has been complaining about the pain and her mom gave her four Darvocet pills. 

Darvocet is a narcotic painkiller. Mindy told her mom that she wasn't feeling well, possibly from a bad reaction to Darvocet, and her mom called 911.

Young says McCready's mom may have been trying to make her custody argument stronger - they're fighting over Mindy's young son - by calling 911.

Young says he just spoke with Mindy, saying, "She's totally coherent. She can't believe her mom did this." Mindy denies she is off the wagon, period.

Backing her up? Dr. Drew Pinsky. He says there is "no evidence of any relapse" and furthermore, that Darvocet was an appropriate med for her pain.

This is the first story we've done on Mindy in some time that didn't involve her getting arrested or naked, at least. Hospitalized is right up there, though.

Last year, the Mindy McCready sex tape came out. Before that, she was accused of leaking the Eric Dane nude tape and jailed for a probation violation.

What a mess.
