Mindy McCready is facing more bad publicity. The fallen country star is now being accused of carrying on a 10-year affair with married baseball star Roger Clemens.

According to the New York Daily News, the affair began when McCready was just 15-years-old. The two reportedly met when Clemens, then 28, and several of his Boston Red Sox teammates saw the aspiring singer perform at a karaoke bar. A friendship ensued, and McCready could often be seen sitting behind home plate during games. She also allegedly traveled on Clemens' private plane, sometimes with his wife.

McCready's lawyer is refusing to comment on the matter. Clemens lawyer, Rusty Hardin, verifies the relationship but insists that it was and is strictly platonic.

"He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her," Hardin told the Daily News. "He's considered her a close family friend. He has never had a sexual relationship with her."

Neither Clemens nor McCready are strangers to controversy. Clemens most recently has been the subject of an ongoing investigation involving his alleged use of steroids and hormones during baseball season. McCready, who has had a long list of personal struggles, was recently released from prison after serving four months for assaulting her own mother and resisting arrest.

McCready, known for her hits '10,000 Angels' and 'Guys Do It All the Time,' is trying to make a career comeback. She's currently working on a new album, planning her own reality TV show and, according to the Daily News, is shooting a documentary in Nashville this week.
