NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country singer Mindy McCready (search) was hospitalized after overdosing on antidepressants early Friday following a quarrel with the father of her unborn child. She was in fair condition Friday afternoon, officials said.
According to a police report, McCready and William McKnight (search) were arguing on the phone about whether his parents would help pay for the pregnancy. He cursed at McCready and she became angry and took about 30 antidepressant pills, the report says.
After McKnight called her back and she didn't answer, he called police and an ambulance.
McCready's lawyer did not return a phone message to his office.
McCready, 29, has had a series of legal and personal problems in recent months, including a drunken driving arrest in Nashville, a suicide attempt and an arrest in Arizona on charges stemming from her involvement with a con man she said she was trying to help police catch.
McKnight was also charged earlier this year with trying to kill her. McCready said he punched her in the face and tried to choke her.
Last year, McCready was charged with obtaining the painkiller OxyContin (search) fraudulently at a pharmacy. She pleaded guilty and was placed on three years' probation.
McCready had a No. 1 hit in 1996 with "Guys Do It All the Time."
