Mindy McCready tearfully confirmed a newspaper report that she carried on a long-term affair with married baseball star Roger Clemens.

The two reportedly met in Fort Myers, Fla., when Mindy was 15 and the pitcher was a 28-year-old married father of two. Mindy says the relationship did not become intimate until she had moved to Nashville and become a country star. His lawyer earlier told the newspaper that Mindy was “a close family friend” and that the two “never had a sexual relationship.” The allegations arose from a defamation suit in which Clemens is the plaintiff. "I have no doubt that Roger has excellent legal representation and he will emerge from this a strong person and a revered athlete," Mindy said in a prepared statement. "I wish him and his family the best."
