Mindy McCready’s Ex Billy McKnight Talks Her Suicide
He’s still trying to sort out the details of his ex-girlfriend Mindy McCready's suicide, and Billy McKnight says he saw it coming.
During his chat on the “Today” show, the father of Mindy’s son Zander explained, "As sad as it is, it didn't come as a major shock.”
“She's just been battling demons for so long. I was around her when she attempted suicide twice, so I knew it was in her. I feel for her mother and her family, especially my son. I can't say that it shocked me, no."
Regarding his son, Billy noted,"He shouldn't have been taken from me to begin with. He was taken out of Florida. He has a happy home here I can provide for him and it's just been a really big mess. Enough is enough. He's up there all alone. He has no family in Arkansas. He has plenty of family who love him here -- cousins, aunts, uncles. He needs to come home."
"I don't know what's going to happen to [Mindy’s other son] Zayne, but if he does go to Fort Meyers where her family is from, it's only an hour and a half difference. I'd like to keep those boys being brothers together and try to turn my son's life around. He's had a rough first six years and he deserves better than this. My heart's broken for him right now. I'm very worried."
