    UNDATED (USA TODAY) - Country singer Mindy McCready's personal battles continue.

    The troubled star entered a treatment facility Wednesday on a judge's orders. At an emergency hearing, McCready, 37, admitted to drinking too much alcohol in the wake of her boyfriend David Wilson's death by self-inflicted gunshot wound three weeks ago, reports E! News.

    Her two sons - Zander, 6, and Zayne, 9 months - have been removed from her home and are currently in foster care. Zayne's father was Wilson. Zander's father is singer Billy McKnight. 

    E! reports that McCready's father, Tim, filed the petition to have McCready enter rehab, saying that she "has been in bed ... Sleeps all day. Drinks all night and is taking prescription drugs. Not bathing or even helping take care of her 2 children."

    McCready has had problems in the past, including attempting suicide, struggling with depression and addiction, and battling over custody of her children.

    "The tragedy of David Wilson's death has been devastating and crippling to Mindy and her entire family," her rep Kat Atwood wrote in a statement, confirming the treatment.

    McCready could be in treatment for up to 21 days, reports E!. Meanwhile, authorities in Cleburne County, Ark., are investigating the circumstances surrounding David Wilson's death, reports People.
