Mindy McCready Back in Court
Mindy McCready was back in a Florida courtroom Friday, trying to regain custody of her 2-year-old son, Zander. The Department of Children and Families is asking for continued involvement with the child, who has been cared for by McCready's mother, Gayle Inge, since the embattled singer's arrest last July. McCready was jailed for parole violation after allegedly assaulting her mother. She was released in December.
A DCF spokeswoman explains that continuing supervision doesn't necessarily mean McCready will not regain custody of her son. Rather, it means the state would have the right to supervise.
These days, McCready is arguably better known for her legal battles and for her alleged affair with baseball star Roger Clemens than she is for her career. But she's trying to make a musical comeback. The singer performed last week at the CMA Music Festival and is reportedly recording a new album. She's has also shot a documentary about her struggle to pick up the pieces. The film, called 'Fallen Angel,' is slated for release in July.
