Dean Cain was once engaged to Mindy McCready. A very long time ago.
Speaking out for the first time since her suicide, he says she was deeply troubled even 15 years ago, and not just because of substance abuse issues.
It was her manipulations and lies that torpedoed their romance, Cain says.
"I'm saddened to hear of her passing, but I'm not surprised," says Cain, 46, echoing the statements made earlier this week by Mindy's ex Billy McKnight.
They lived together and were engaged, but things imploded after a year.
