Country music singer Mindy McCready is mourning the death of her long-time boyfriend, David Wilson, after he took his own life Sunday evening.
Wilson was found with a gunshot wound to the head Sunday in his Arkansas home,New York Daily News reports. The 34-year-old record producer was the father of McCready’s 9-month-old son Zayne.
She has another son, 6-year-old Zander with ex Billy McKnight.
Authorities were called to the home around 6:15pm, where Wilson was transported to a nearby hospital. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
The singer released a statement Tuesday saying, “Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children's father, David Wilson. David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne. He was a precious gift from God to all of us and, yesterday, he returned home and is now with his mother and father.”
She concludes, "David loved and he was loved. Those who knew and loved him will miss him; those who did not know David missed the opportunity to know a truly loving and gifted man."
A representative for McCready tells People that the 37-year-old is currently surrounded by her friends and family who are helping her through this difficult time.
