These are dark times for Mindy McCready.

First the country singer lost her "soul mate," David Wilson, who was also father to her 9-month-old son, Zayne. Then it was ruled that David died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Mindy talked to Dateline for an upcoming broadcast, and a portion was previewed on the Today show. Since David's passing was so shocking to everyone around him, it led to some pretty difficult questions. Mindy was asked if she believed 100 percent that David killed himself, or if he might have been murdered. She was silent before answering, "I don't know." But she does know what she didn't kill him. She was actually asked point-blank if she had shot him. "Oh my god, no. Oh my god, no," Mindy said (via E! News). "He was my life. We were each other's life." On top of that, she had to address rumors that David was cheating. "David was not having an affair with another woman,” Mindy said. “That is absolutely totally untrue."

Mindy said she's never gone through anything this painful, "nor will I ever again go through anything as painful." Let's hope not. This is already more than enough tragedy for one family.
