Mindy McCready's Son Sent To Foster Care During Custody Battle

Mindy McCready And Her 5-Year-Old Son Are Missing!

Poor little Zander!

The 5-year-old made national headlines back in Nov. when his mom, singer Mindy Mccready, kidnapped him from his legal guardians.

Mindy — who had lost all custody rights when she was jailed in 2008 — claimed she had a right to see her son, and demanded he be allowed to live with her in Arkansas and not in Florida where his guardians (her parents) and his father live.

Somehow, the You'll Never Know singer's kidnapping and angry Facebook statuses directed at the cops got officials to revaluate her custody case.

In fact, a rep for an Arkansas social services agency has demanded the custody case be transferred to Arkansas, where the five year old child is attending school and seeing a therapist. But, a Florida judge says "hell naw!"

He's decided NOT to let the case leave his state, though he IS allowing Zander to remain in foster care in Arkansas.

We really hope that's what Zander wants. This whole thing really doesn't seem fair to him!

Holy shiz! It's LEGIT!

Oprah Winfrey announced this morning that the family secret she's been teasing since last week is, in fact, that she has a HALF-SISTER, named Patricia, that she knew nothing about until this past November!

She explains:

"For the most part my life has been an open book. I thought nothing could surprise me but I was wrong."

Wrong, indeed!

According to the talk show host, her mother, Vernita Lee, gave up the child, now 47, for adoption when she realized that she couldn't afford to raise her. Patricia was in foster care until she was seven, at which point she was adopted.

She's currently a single mother living in Milwaukee.

Such unbelievable and HAPPY news!

We cannot wait to see this entire interview in-full today! We imagine that there are going to be a lot of tears!

Congratulations, bb!
