Mindy McCready has been through a lot, and is certainly no saint (drug addiction, jail time, domestic altercations, etc), but she wants to clear one thing up:
She did not kill David Wilson.
In an interview with NBC's Dateline (a portion of which aired on Today), she says of losing her boyfriend, "I've never gone through anything this painful."
"Nor will I ever again go through anything as painful."
Calling Wilson, who took his own life via self-inflicted gunshot wound, her "soul mate," she added, "He didn't just touch my heart, he touched my soul."
Wilson, 34, was the father of McCready's 9-month-old son, Zayne. She also has a 6-year-old son, Zander, from her relationship with Billy McKnight.
According to news reports, David Wilson died at his home in Heber Springs, Ark., of suicide. The investigation into his death remains open, however.
Asked whether she had any role in the record producer's demise, Mindy said, "Oh my God, no. Oh my God, no. He was my life. We were each other's life."
She also slammed rumors that Wilson was cheating on her, saying, "David was not having an affair with another woman. That is absolutely totally untrue."
However, when questioned about whether she believed "100 percent" that David Wilson had committed suicide, McCready was quiet for a moment.
"I don't know," the troubled singer admitted.
All we can do is stay tuned on this one.
