In the wake of Mindy McCready’s death, Vivid Entertainment CEO Steve Hirsch has decided to stop distribution of the troubled country star’s sex tape. Three years ago, the raunchy encounter with one of her boyfriends was released following her stint on Celebrity Rehab. It was called Baseball Mistress because, in it, she details her affair with Roger Clemens. The footage has been in print ever since, but apparently, the porn company isn’t interested in making money off of her death.
According to TMZ, physical production of the DVDs has already been stopped, and the digital footage has started disappearing from the company’s website. Photographs and clips have snaked their way onto various other websites in the past three years. It’ll be impossible to completely gut the Internet of all those traces, but on everything owned by Vivid, Baseball Mistress will reportedly be absent.
Once a promising light on the country scene, many of McCready’s later years were spent battling depression and various addictions. She tried her damndest on numerous occasions to get clean, but in the end, all of the demons were simply too much. She shot herself and the family dog on Sunday, just hours after her father, who had been caring for her, left her home.
If nothing else, hopefully this decision by Vivid will spare McCready’s family from having to read articles about how her death renewed macabre interest in her sex tape.
