Mindy McCready Confirms Affair With Roger Clemens

Country singer Mindy McCready has confirmed that she had an affair with Roger Clemens when she was just a teenager and the pitcher was in his late twenties.

The revelation comes after Clemens denied that he had anything more than a friendship with the singer, and claimed she was just a 'family friend': "I cannot refute anything in the story," McCready tells the New York Daily News. "Yes, I have known Roger Clemens for a long time. He's a kind and caring man."

"There are legal matters working their way through the system that have nothing to do with me. From my point of view, that is where the focus should remain," she said referring to Clemens' recent steriod use allegations.

In its earlier story, the paper reported that Clemens' decade-long relationship with McCready began when she was just 15 and Clemens was 28. It was in response to that story, Clemens' lawyer claimed she was nothing more than a family friend: "Mindy McCready is a longtime family friend of Roger Clemens and the Clemens family."

"At no time did Roger engage in any kind of inappropriate or improper relationship with her. It is unfortunate that the Daily News has chosen to report anonymous allegations that are completely unfounded, have no basis in fact, and have nothing to do with Roger's baseball career or the issue of steroid use in baseball."

The paper reports, Clemens' wife hasn't even met McCready and is definitely not a 'family friend' as he claims.

As expected, Clemens' lawyer has made no comment since this new development but the story is further undermining Clemens' reputation, which could have a big impact in the defamation suit he has filed against his former trainer, Brian McNamee. McNamee claims Clemens used performance-enhancing drugs during his career.

McCready, who is now 32, is best known for her No. 1 single in 1996 called "Guys Do It All the Time."
