Roger Clemens Reacts to Mindy McCready Death in Statement

by at . Comments

Former baseball star Roger Clemens issued a statement in response to the death of Mindy McCready, who he was once rumored to have been close with.

"This is sad news," the MLB legend said of her suicide.

"I had heard over time that she was trying to get peace and direction in her life. The few times that I had met her and her manager/agent they were extremely nice."

Did Clemens "meet" her a lot more than a few times?

In 2008, the New York Daily News reported that Roger Clemens and Mindy McCready had a decade-long affair - that started when the singer was 15.

McCready, who struggled with addiction and mental illness throughout her life, notably did not refute the newspaper's report or any of its alleged details.

She said she'd "known Roger Clemens for a long time."

McCready later confirmed details of the affair to Inside Edition, but said that her relationship with Clemens did not become sexual until after she was 18.

At that time, Clemens' lawyer Rusty Hardin described McCready, who died at age 37, as "a longtime family friend of Roger Clemens and [his] family."

Hardin noted that at no time did Clemens, who has been married since 1984, "engage in any kind of inappropriate or improper relationship with her."

His brief statement was released in Kissimmee, Fla. on Monday morning, where Clemens is now a special instructor with the Houston Astros.

R.I.P poor dogie...I'm so sorry your owner was so selfish and heartless and took your life along with hers, when you had nothing to do with her problems. God bless her children, thank god she didn't have them with her or she would have killed them to...

Though it's difficult to understand those dealing with mental issues, I have little good to say about two people who put their own wants and desires above that of their two children - children who will forever wonder why they weren't enough for their parents to live for. And killing the dog was low too. Let it go, let it live, let it make it's own choice, cause personally, that dog would have been better off without either of you.

She is gone. At this point what does it matter how long they "knew" eachother? I'm sure she will be missed. What I will Never understand, her and her boyfriend having a baby and then killing themselves? That poor baby, not to mention her older son. God help them.
