Country singer Mindy McCready was listed in fair condition Friday afternoon after being hospitalized earlier in the day for overdosing on about 30 antidepressant pills, according to the Associated Press, relying on a Nashville police report.

The police report said that the pregnant McCready and William McKnight, the father of the unborn child, were arguing on the phone about whether his parents would help pay for the pregnancy. McKnight reportedly cursed at McCready and she became angry and took the pills, the report goes on to say.

After McKnight called her back and she didn't answer, he called police and an ambulance.

McCready's lawyer did not return a phone message to his office.

In recent months, the "Guys Do It All the Time" singer, 29, has made news for a series of legal and personal problems. These include a drunken driving arrest in Nashville, a suicide attempt and an arrest in Arizona on charges stemming from her involvement with a con man whom she said she was assisting police in apprehending.

McKnight was also charged earlier this year with trying to kill her after she said he punched her in the face and tried to choke her.

Last year, McCready was charged with fraudulently obtaining the painkiller OxyContin at a pharmacy. She pleaded guilty and was placed on three years' probation.
