Country star and Celebrity Rehab alum Mindy McCready took a drug test just last week and passed, has learned.

The 34-year-old was rushed to a Fort Myers hospital on Tuesday suspected of a drug overdose. Her mother, Gayle McCready Inge, told that Mindy took about 25 pills used for the treatment of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

As first reported Mindy was asked to take a drug test by the state of Florida last Wednesday during a hearing to regain custody of her 4-year-old son Zander.

Mindy lost custody three years ago because of drug problems and domestic violence issues. Since then, her mother, Gayle, has been the legal guardian.

Kat Atwood, Mindy’s publicist, says “in order to visit her son, she had to take a serious of drug tests last Wednesday.” And, she says Mindy passed the tests.

And although her mom Gayle, who called 911, told that Mindy was attempting suicide, Atwood says “there is nothing to support she tried to commit suicide.”

Atwood also asks that everyone remember that a 4-year-old child is the real person being affected by the public feud between his mother and his grandmother.
