Country music singer Mindy McCready, whose long-term affair with baseball star Roger Clemens has ensnared her in his legal battles, was hospitalized in an apparent suicide attempt Wednesday morning, according to the New York Daily News.

Police and paramedics were called to a Nashville home where McCready was staying and immediately took her to a hospital after they found wounds on her wrists.

“We responded to a ’10-63,’ that’s a suicidal person call. Mindy McCready was at the house,” said spokeswoman Kris Mumford of the Nashville Police Department.

“Apparently she called the mother of her roommate and said some things that caused the mother concern. She called authorities. We responded with paramedics.”

The 33-year-old McCready has been weathering enormous pressure all year, and was treated this summer at a Hunt, Texas rehab center for a nervous breakdown.

This spring, it was learned that McCready had an affair with Clemens starting in 1991, when she was 15 and he was a married father of two playing for the Red Sox. Mindy McCready confirmed the affair a day after the story broke, April 28.

In October, she was released from a Tennessee jail in October after serving half of a 60-day jail sentence for violating probation on prescription drug fraud.

The embattled singer also tried to take her own life in 2005 after swallowing a nearly fatal dose of pills with wine. Here’s hoping she gets help this time.
