Roger Clemens had a decade-long relationship with country star Mindy McCready that began when she was a 15-year-old aspiring singer and the pitcher was a Boston Red Sox ace, the New York Daily News reported.
Clemens' lawyer, Rusty Hardin, confirmed a long-term relationship but told the newspaper it was not sexual.
"He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her," Hardin said. "He's considered her a close family friend. ... He has never had a sexual relationship with her." (H/T - The Chicago Tribune)
Even if the relationship was not sexual, what the hell is a 28-year old baseball player doing with a 15-year old singer? He sure wasn't giving her singing lessons. This entire incident stinks to high heaven. It's inappropriate at best, criminal at worst.
