McCready 'Cannot Refute Story' Involving Affair With Clemens
April 29, 2008 at 6:51 AM (PT)
In response to yesterday's (NET NEWS 4/28) allegations that former major league pitcher ROGER CLEMENS and Country singer MINDY McCREADY were involved in a 10-year affair that began when she was 15, the TENNESSEAN reports this morning (4/29) that McCREADY "cannot refute anything in the story." The singer claimed in a statement that she "has known ROGER CLEMENS for a long time," without specifying the nature of their relationship.
CLEMENS' lawyer RUSTY HARDIN confirmed that ROGER and MINDY knew each other, but their relationship was not sexual. In a statement, HARDIN said, "MINDY McCREADY is a long-time family friend of ROGER CLEMENS and the CLEMENS family. At no time did ROGER engage in any kind of inappropriate or improper relationship with her. It is unfortunate that the DAILY NEWS has chosen to report anonymous allegations that are completely unfounded, have no basis in fact, and have nothing to do with ROGER's baseball career or the issue of steroid use in baseball."
