Country Star Mindy McCready Enters Rehab

Country singer Mindy McCready has entered rehab, after a trip to the ER couldn't heal all that was ailing her.

"Mindy McCready did receive emergency care at Vanderbilt University Medical Center," her rep said in a statement. "Other issues made it prudent for her to seek longer term and broader based treatment."

"To her credit, she has entered into an extended care facility where she will receive the care needed and for the moment we ask that everyone respect her privacy," the rep added.

Though the reason for her hospital visit was not released, TMZ.com reported that the troubled singer, who recently admitted a past affair with married Yankees star Roger Clemens, mixed vodka and Ambien in a suicide attempt. While the New York Daily News reported that Mindy suffered a nervous breakdown from all the media attention her alleged affair brought on.

Mindy has been battling demons for sometime now. She had a drug arrest in 2004 and violated her probation in 2007. Hopefully she'll get the help she needs this time.
