MINDY MCCREADY may be a suspect in the death of her boyfriend, David Wilson . . . who died from a gunshot wound to the head on January 13th. Up to now everyone's been calling it a suicide . . . except the police.
A sheriff's spokesman told "The National Enquirer", quote, "This is a very high-profile case and we need to make sure it's investigated as thoroughly as possible.
"It could take weeks for the state crime lab to complete their tests on Mr. Wilson's body, and if you'll notice, it was Mindy McCready's spokesperson . . . not anyone involved in the investigation . . . who made the determination that Mr. Wilson's death was due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound."
There are several things about the case that are suspicious. One is that Wilson's close friends said he was "in good spirits" . . . and that they were "clueless" as to why he'd want to kill himself.
And then there's the missing bullet. A source told "The Enquirer" that police couldn't find it until the next day. Did someone hide it? Bullets can be traced to the gun they're fired from . . . so whoever owns that gun could be a suspect.
But the biggest bombshell is that Wilson was allegedly CHEATING on Mindy. The source said, quote, "David had been carrying on an affair for many weeks before the shooting. When Mindy found out, it fueled a lot of very heated fights.
"The tension in their household became so unbearable that David packed up and left. He returned several days later to tell Mindy that he was going to leave her for good."
Police in Heber Springs, Arkansas, have NOT named any suspects . . . but that could change. The source added, quote, "There [are] a lot of elements to the case that police feel simply don't seem to add up."
THOMAS RHETT has seen enough singers screw up the National Anthem . . . that it's scared him away from even trying it.
He says, quote, "I don't sing the National Anthem. I love my country, I support my country, I support the troops but that is the one song I can't . . . I can't do it, because if you mess up you're done!"
TOBY KEITH loves playing his Japanese made Takamine guitar . . . so the company created his own signature model. It's called the EF250TK . . . and it has features like a "full-sounding jumbo body" and a "solid spruce top with maple back and sides".
Sounds good to me. Here is a picture of this beautiful guitar that retails for around $3600.00
CHELY WRIGHT and her lovely wife Lauren Blitzer-Wright are expecting twins. And it looks like Lauren is the one wearing the pants in that family . . . at least for now . . . because Chely is the pregnant one.
Chely and Lauren revealed the big news on a gay issues YouTube show called "Gwissues". Get it? They put the words "gay", "women" and "issues" together and got Gwissues. Well, that's my "gwuess".
Anyway, Chely said, quote, "We're excited to be parents and we hope we don't mess it up too badly! We feel like God blessed us with twins. We feel our entire relationship has been blessed. We feel lucky and ready to take on the challenges."
The babies are due in July, but Chely said identical twins come a month early, so now you know.
You can listen to Chely and Lauren's interview here. Skip to the mark for the big announcement. You're "Gwelcome".
Does it matter to you if BEYONCÉ lip-synced her rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" at PRESIDENT OBAMA'S inauguration on Monday? It certainly doesn't to MIRANDA LAMBERT. She's totally in Beyoncé's corner.
Miranda was at an event yesterday sponsored by Pedigree dog food . . . when she started talking about her dream duet partners.
She said, quote, "I would love to sing with KELLY CLARKSON if I ever get the guts . . . she's amazing. I sang with her onstage in Colorado and she was, I just wanted to crawl in a hole.
"I saw Kelly's Twitter and she was hanging out with Beyoncé at the inauguration, I was like 'Really? My two favorite girls?'"
That's when someone asked Miranda for her take on the controversy . . . and she answered, quote, "I don't think it matters. It's Beyoncé, she can do whatever the hell she wants!"
