If you believe the National Enquirer...
Country singer Mindy McCready is under investigation for any possible role she played in her live-in boyfriend’s shooting death.
Sources say he was cheating on her and possibly threatened to leave her on the day that he died.
A source told the tabloid, ‘David had been carrying on an affair for many weeks before the shooting. When Mindy found out, it fuelled 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 said that there are any suspects in the case and their initial report on the shooting said that he died of wounds sustained by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
In all previous reports, it was never clear if Mindy was in the house at the time that her beau shot himself on Sunday January 13, but in the Enquirerarticle, they allege that she was actually the one who made the 911 call.
According to the magazine, she told investigators that she did not hear the gunshot because the volume on the television set was too loud and that the emergency operator even heard a man moaning in the background when she was making the call.
The source says, ‘There [seem to be] a lot of elements to the case that police feel simply don’t seem to add up.'.
He shot himself to death at the home in Heber Springs, Arkansas, that they shared together.

A young singer named Summer Cunningham helped jump start the Mariah Carey- Nicki Minaj beef last night on ‘American Idol‘.
The 20-year-old auditioned by singing ‘Lean on Me’. She impressed the judges. When new judge Keith Urban asked her about her background, Cunningham replied, “I did the country thing for a while,” which he took issue with.
Keith told her, “That’s like saying, ‘I did the brain surgeon thing. You’re either a brain surgeon or you’re not.”
Summer went on to explain that she is trying to combine country and soul. When both Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey scolded Summer about whether she was a country singer at heart or not, Nicki Minaj chimed in, saying that the other judges were trying to force the young contestant to be a country singer.
While Summer won her way to the next round in Hollywood with four unanimous votes, Nicki Minaj ended up storming off the set after an exchange with Mariah, forcing production to close for the rest of the day. The judges resumed the following day without incident.

Justin Bieber was in Charlotte, North Carolina on a tour stop for his "Believe" tour and got to meet one of his idols, basketball great Michael Jordan!
After the meeting, Bieber tweeted a picture and claimed it was a huge deal for him.
Justin Timberlake will be a special guest at DirecTV's pre-Super Bowl "Super Saturday Night" event on February 2nd.
Questlove will also be on stage to keep the crowd dancing before and after Timberlake's set. No word on what JT will perform, but most think it will be his new single,"Suit & Tie".
Timberlake's appearance at "Super Saturday Night" will be his first performance in almost five years and it'll be for a good cause. His show will benefit Shriners Hospital for Children.
Unfortunately, only people invited to the private "Super Saturday Night" party will get to see Justin perform. Tickets aren't even available for purchase.
In a new interview will Billboard Magazine, Prince had some not-so kind words about some of his musical peers.
When he was asked about his contract with Warner Bros. Records, he went at Madonna for taking up much of the label's focus at his expense.
He said: "It was also about Madonna. She was getting paid, but at the time we were selling more records and selling out concerts on multiple nights."
He also took a shot at Maroon 5 for covering his classic hit "Kiss."
He said: "Why do we need to hear another cover of a song someone else did? Art is about building a new foundation, not just laying something on top of what's already there."
No comment from Maroon 5 or Madonna.
Justin Bieber went off on a woman at a gym in North Carolina and mocked her workout, cussed at her and possibly even spit in her water bottle. At least that's what the woman is claiming.
The woman is named Colette Harrington. She's a radio host who claims she was minding her own business working out at the gym at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel whenBieber walked into the gym with two other people. One appeared to be his trainer and the other appeared to be a backup dancer or singer. She approached Justin and asked for a picture, but he said no.
She continued working out, but then heard Justin and his crew mocking her workout routine.
Colette said: "I always count out loud my reps. Then Justin starts imitating me and whenever I'd get to 20 he and his buddy would say 'Shut the F'ck up.'"
Colette ignored the group but they continued to mock her as she counted out her reps. Then, someone spit blue Gatorade into her water bottle while she wasn't looking.
Colette filed a complaint with the hotel. She's also going to sell the spit-filled water bottle on eBay and plans to use the money to upgrade the kitchen at her local Ronald McDonald house, where she volunteers.
Bieber's rep said the woman is wrong and that Justin and his trainer were in the gym making comments to each other but not at the woman.
According to Us Weekly, Taylor Swift is starting “to crack”.
The magazine claims she's starting to fall apart since her split with Harry Styles and after being “humiliated” by public comments.
A source claims the breakup killed her, along with losing to Adele at the Golden Globes, being the target of a Tina Fey joke and having Michael J. Fox say he’d prefer she stay away from his son.
A source said: “It wasn’t the week she could take a joke. She feels like a loser in love, and doesn’t have many friends anymore. She is focusing on what sh can control: her looks. She has been carefully monitoring what she eats, while also drinking more than usual. Her loved ones are worried she won’t make it through her upcoming tour."
A source close to Taylor said she’s “doing great” and is ready for her tour to start.
After a very public break-up, Taylor Swift is (allegedly) getting back together with Harry Styles.
The couple apparently patched up their differences and will seal their reunion at the NRJ Music Awards this weekend in France.
A source told the UK's Sun: 'Taylor realized she was being a bit full-on. She is now more relaxed about their relationship. She intends to enjoy it more rather than worry about where it could eventually lead. Harry is not the sort of guy you can stay mad at for long. She’s given him some space and it’s done them both a world of good. What happened over New Year is now a distant memory."
PSY's " Gangnam Style" video already holds the title as the most watched YouTube video of all time. Now. We are seeing how much advertising revenue the video brought to the website. Try $8 million!
The video generated over $8 million in online advertising deals. It broke a billion views late last year and as of yesterday, had 1.23 billion views.
"Gangnam Style" is still being watched between 7 to 10 million times every day.
The video makes an average of 65 cents every time someone hits the play button. The YouTube creator keeps half the money, which means PSY and his record company have made at least $4 million from YouTube so far.
It's no secret that Taylor Swift loves love, but even she says she needs a break sometimes.
She said: "Independence is something I've always needed, from when I was young, but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I've never really had a long relationship. So that's something I think about for the future. It's an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone."
"I'm a Sagittarius, which means I'm blindly optimistic, I love to travel, I'm always up for adventure but also always want something new. Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We're drawn to love but battle for that need for independence. I just know that if you're not careful with things they can go away. I've seen people with careers that were great until they started taking them for granted. And I'm scared of that."

It's been almost a year since Whitney Houston died. Now, her mother, Cissy Houston, is opening up about her daughter's death in a new memoir where she talks about Whitney's struggle with substance abuse and her concerns about her 19-year-old granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina in a new memoir.
On Whitney's partying: "I had no idea about Nippy's partying. And the truth is, back then I didn't really want to know about it."
On Whitney's alleged lesbian relationship with close friend Robyn Crawford: "There was something about the way Robyn carried herself, a kind of arrogance, that I didn't like. She told me that Nippy was using drugs, that they both were on occasion, but that 'Nippy likes it a little too much.'"
In 2005, Cissy Houston flew to Atlanta, where Whitney and Bobby had moved. She wrote about what she saw when she walked in the home.
She said: "The things I saw sent a chill right through me. Somebody had been spraypainting the walls, painting big glaring eyes and strange faces. They were evil eyes, staring you like a threat. And there was a big framed photo of Nippy, Bobby and Krissi - but someone had cut Nippy's head right out of it."
On what she could have done for her daughter to have had a different ending: "She's put on her chirpy little-girl voice, and to my ears she sounded all right. If there's any one thing I regret about our relationship, that's it: for whatever reason, she never could talk to me about anything that upset her, unless she was really in trouble. And that's something I'll never get over. Since my daughter died, I've struggled with so many things. I'm still so angry at Nippy, at the world, at myself. Should I have done things differently? She was a person whose life and voice touched millions of people. I'm as proud as any mother could be about her daughter, but I would trade every last bit of it to have my baby back."
