Mindy McCready Ex Son – Mindy McCready is still hiding and it’s making her ex more worried about their son. He wants the child back but the country music singer stated that she will not bring him back from Tennessee, despite violating a custody arrangement.
She took the boy during a recent visit at her father’s Florida home, and a judge signed an order Thursday ordering authorities to take the boy into custody and return him. It’s not yet clear whether the singer could face criminal charges.
“I’m doing all this to protect Zander, not stay out of trouble,” McCready wrote in an email to The Associated Press on Thursday. “I don’t think I should be in trouble for protecting my son in the first place.”
Mindy says she is in Tennessee and cannot travel because she’s nearly seven months pregnant with twins.
The judge’s order means law enforcement anywhere can pick up the boy and bring him back to Florida.
Her ex and the boy’s father, Billy McKnight, told the NBC “Today” show Friday he spoke on the phone with Mindy and their boy after the judge’s deadline expired.
“He did sound healthy and ok. He wasn’t crying or scared,” McKnight said about their child.
“I think she believes she has a case and doesn’t realize she’s pushing her luck on this one,” he said.
The former Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew patient and her mother have had a long custody battle over the boy. He was living with her mother, who was awarded guardianship in 2007. McCready says her child has suffered abuse at her mother’s house; her mother, Gayle Inge, denies the abuse allegations.
