Actor Dean Cain was once engaged to Mindy McCready, the country singer who took her own life earlier this week. Cain and McCready began their relationship in 1997, living together and becoming engaged, but the coupling went south after about a year. 

Cain tells People that her passing does not come as a shock after their tumultuous relationship. 

"I'm saddened to hear of her passing, but I'm not surprised," says Cain. "I can't paint too pretty a picture. She would start arguments, start drama. Things weren't allowed to be good."

The actor adds that while he never saw her abusing drugs or alcohol, he definitely saw the signs of that type of behavior.

"She was never abusive or addictive with me, but red flags were everywhere," he says. "I saw all the bad signs and told her to get out. Everything she did was a manipulation of sorts. She would just get combative."

"My first thought was of the poor kids," Cain finishes. "To think about the legacy those boys have been left, it's just tragic. ... All her troubles were self-inflicted. She had everything. She was a tremendous talent but everything about it was a waste."

 Wow. It's clear the lady had issues, especially since she tried several times before to take her own life.

He should really just shut his mouth about the whole thing. She's gone. May her troubled soul rest in peace.
