Shocking new information has been brought to life about country singer Randy Travis' near death illness from over the summer. New reports suggest that his fiancé may have almost killed him when she selfishly made him switch hospitals against doctors orders.

The National Enquirer (keep in mind the source) has allegedly released an interview with Travis' father, Har­old Traywick. In the interview, he claims that Travis' fiancé Mary Beougher indangered his son's health:

“Doctors were advising Mary to keep Randy in Nashville because flying him back home to Texas could risk his life. But she did it anyway.”

He also added:

“Randy has always let his women run his life – and they want to keep him away from his family so they can get their hands on his money.”

Randy spent the latter part of the summer in critical condition at the Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital in Plano, Texas. The singer was rushed to the ER on July 7 and was being treated viral cardiomyopathy.

Things then went from bad to worse very quickly, when just days later on July, 10, Travis suffered a stroke that required emergency brain surgery to reduce swelling on his brain.

Thankfully, his condition stabilized shortly, after and he is now undergoing the next step in his recovery.

Travis has struggled with sobriety in the past. The singer/songwriter has nearly as many DUIs as he does Grammy's. Last year, he was arrested for getting into a fight in a church parking lot.It appeared that Randy was turning his life around, after having undergone court-ordered alcohol treatment in order to avoid a six month jail sentence.

Traywick also credited Beougher for Travis' personal demons:

 “Randy didn’t take a drink for 20 years when he was with Lib, but now that he’s with Mary, he’s drink­ing again. I’m scared for him – he gets crazy on alcohol.”

The 54-year-old singer, songwriter and actor has accomplished a great deal during his life. Some career highlights include: Six Grammys, six Country Music Awards, nine ACMs, ten AMAs and seven Dove Awards.Travis is most known for his hit songs: “Forever and Ever, Amen,” “Deeper Than the Holler,” “Digging Up Bones,” “On the Other Hand,” and “Three Wooden Crosses.”
