Country crooner Mindy McCready has sued her ex-boyfriend, William McKnight, for $3 million claiming he beat her last year and because of this, her career suffered, the Associated Press reports.
McCready filed the papers last month in Davidson County Circuit Court in Tennessee.
McKnight has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly beating the singer last year. McCready also faced charges last year for driving under the influence.
“One of the problems is that, literally, venues worried about whether … McKnight would show up and someone would get hurt,” McCready?s spokesman, Paul Berg, said.
After the beating, the couple briefly reconciled and McCready got pregnant by McKnight and is currently raising their two-month-old son. McKnight?s lawyer has said he is disappointed with the current lawsuit
