Mindy McCready Net Worth:
What is Mindy McCready’s Net Worth?
Mindy McCready was a country music singer who was worth $50,000 when she passed away. Mindy McCready’s first album, “Ten Thousand Angels,” which came out in 1996, made her famous. This was followed by four more albums, which included hit singles like “Guys Do It All the Time” and “A Girl’s Gotta Do (What a Girl’s Gotta Do).” McCready killed herself in early 2013 at the age of 37. Her personal life was very hard because she was addicted to drugs, was abused at home, and had been arrested many times.
Malinda Gayle McCready was born in Fort Myers, Florida, on November 30, 1975. She started performing when she was very young. When she was only three, she sang at her Pentecostal church. McCready went on to finish high school at age 16 so she could start her music career right away.
Career in Music
McCready moved to Nashville, Tennessee, when he was 18 and signed with BNA Records. Then, in 1996, she put out her first studio album, “Ten Thousand Angels.” The album was a big hit, and it went Double Platinum after selling two million copies. It also gave rise to four singles that did well on the US country charts: “Ten Thousand Angels,” “Guys Do It All the Time,” “Maybe He’ll Notice Her Now,” and “A Girl’s Gotta Do (What a Girl’s Gotta Do).” “If I Don’t Stay the Night,” McCready’s second album, came out in 1997. The singles “What If I Do,” “You’ll Never Know,” and “The Other Side of This Kiss” came from the album, which was certified Gold by the RIAA.
“I’m Not So Tough” was McCready’s third album. It came out in 1999. Only 144,000 copies were sold, which was a lot less than her other books. Because of this, McCready’s record company got rid of her. She then signed with Capitol Records, and in 2002, her fourth album, which was called “Self-Titled,” came out. Even though this album didn’t sell as well as expected, Capitol still dropped McCready later in the year. She came back in 2010 with her fifth album, “I’m Still Here,” which was well received by critics. It would be her last album before she died three years later. The day after McCready died in 2013, a single called “I’ll See You Yesterday” came out.
Career in Television
McCready has also been in a few reality TV shows over the years, in addition to her music career. In 2009, she was on “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” where her struggles with drug abuse were shown. A few years later, McCready was on “Celebrity Close Calls” and “Celebrity Ghost Stories.”
McCready had a number of bad relationships with men in her life. In 1997, she was going to marry actor Dean Cain, but they broke up the next year. Later, in 2003, McCready began dating a want tobe singer named William McKnight. In 2005, he beat her and was arrested and charged with trying to kill her. But in the end, they were together again and had a son named Zander. In 2012, McCready had a second son named Zayne. His father was the record producer David Wilson, who killed himself at McCready’s home in early 2013.
Roger Clemens, a famous baseball player, was McCready’s most famous boyfriend. In 2008, the New York Daily News published a story that said the two had been together since McCready was 15 years old. McCready confirmed the relationship when she talked to “Inside Edition,” but she said that it didn’t become sexual until she was an adult.
McCready got in trouble with the law a lot. In 2004, she was arrested for getting painkillers with a fake prescription. She was given a fine, put on probation for three years, and told to do community service. McCready was arrested and charged with DUI the following year. Not long after this happened, she was charged with, among other things, identity theft and illegal use of transportation. After that, McCready was charged with not going to see her probation officer.
After a fight with her mother in 2007, McCready was charged with battery and trying to get away from the police. The next week, she was arrested for breaking her probation. She was sentenced to a year in jail, two more years of probation, and 200 more hours of community service. In 2008, McCready was arrested again for breaking the rules of her probation. This time, she was given 60 days in jail.
Problems with health and death
McCready had a lot of trouble with drug addiction and tried to kill himself more than once. In 2005, when she was expecting her first child, she tried to kill herself by taking too many antidepressants. Three years later, at her home in Nashville, she tried to kill herself again. In 2010, McCready was taken to a hospital in Florida because he might have overdosed on drugs again. In the beginning of 2013, McCready was found dead on her porch. She had shot herself, just like her ex-boyfriend David Wilson had done the month before. She was 37 at the time.
