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.

"Nor will I ever again go through anything as painful."

Mindy McCready cannot even give birth without controversy.

The country singer - who abducted her son in late 2011 and was eventually found cowering with the five-year old in a friend's closet - welcomed a baby boy into the world last Monday, she confirmed over the weekend, despite reports that she was pregnant with twins.

His name is Zayne.

“Zayne is truly a blessing and a joy,” McCready and boyfriend David Wilson said in a statement. “It was a long and trying pregnancy; we’re so happy he’s here. There are no words to convey how happy we are.”

A rep for McCready says a "misinterpreted sonogram" was to blame for the initial claim of two fetuses.

The crooner's sordid history includes an alleged relationship with cheating baseball star Roger Clemens when she was only 16, along with the incident detailed above and a sex tape. She is also the mother to Zander, 6.

Mindy McCready is an odd one. In her latest eye-opening public statement, she said that her son Zander is really the only thing stopping her from offing herself.

In an interview with ABC's 20/20, McCready said the boy "saved my life."

"Every time I wanted to let go and give in, I remember what he did for me," said McCready, who has attempted suicide at least once. "He is my little angel."

McCready's previous efforts at suicide and substance abuse are the reasons she no longer has custody of Zander - and feuds with her mother, who does.

Mindy and Zander were recently the subject of an interstate manhunt after she allegedly took off with him during a visitation. He is now in foster care.

The troubled country singer says that her mom, Gayle Inge, believes herself to be a prophet from God - not exactly a good influence on young Zander.

Also, "They see dead people in their home all the time – spirits, demons, ghosts," explained McCready, who is pregnant again with twins as we speak.

McCready also contends Inge has spanked Zander with a wooden spoon hard enough to leave scars. Inge denies the allegation. Until Round 293 ...

With the FBI accusing her of “parental abduction,” troubled singer Mindy McCready tells ABC that she believed she did nothing wrong in violating a court order.

After fleeing with her five-year-old son to Arkansas, U.S. Marshals said they later found the country singer and the boy hiding in a closet, which she denies.

“What I did was to protect my child, there’s not a person in the world that’s going to tell me that that is wrong,” said McCready, who was found in Arkansas.

"I would not ever think that me taking my own child, that I carried for nine months, that I gave birth to in the hospital by myself would ever be breaking the law.”

That's not necessarily how it works, but oh well.

McCready, who is pregnant with twins, said her son was anguished when, she said, U.S. Marshals came to get the boy with a SWAT team-like force last Friday.

“He was screaming, ‘Please don’t touch me, don’t touch me, please don’t touch my mommy. Please, leave me alone, I want to be with my mommy,’” she said.

An official with the U.S. Marshalls said that authorities used standard operating procedure when taking Zander into custody and had a social worker with them.
