Mother Says Mindy McCready 'Absolutely' Attempted Suicide

Mindy McCready's mother says that the country singer tried to commit suicide on Tuesday -- and that's what led to her sudden hospitalization.

Gayle says "there's absolutely no doubt" that Mindy overdosed on pills. And according to her, the 34-year-old has had at least "seven suicide attempts" that she's aware of.

McCready recently declared herself clean on 'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew' after years of battling drugs.

"Mindy told the 911 people that she absolutely didn't care if she lost her life," she says.

"I can't tell you what's in Mindy's heart, and her intent obviously, only Mindy knows that. But I can tell you I think she is addicted to media attention.... whenever things like this happen, Mindy does not take responsibility for it."

"I would like to see Mindy not in denial anymore," she says. "I would like to see her tell the truth. I would like her to get the help she needs."

Meanwhile, Brent Young, a longtime friend of McCready's, says it was simply an "allergic reaction."

"I think her mother—as any concerned mother would—possibly overreacted to an allergic reaction," he says. "She was very coherent on the way to the hospital and once she was in the hospital."

"She's been doing so well since Celebrity Rehab and has passed every drug test. Unfortunately, because of her past, people made assumptions."

Young claims that the allergic reaction was caused because of medication McCready is taking for a broken toe.
