Kellie Pickler Addresses Husband’s Suicide

Six months following the untimely passing of her husband Kyle Jacobs, Kellie Pickler has broken her silence about the tragedy.

In a statement released to People on Thursday (8.17,), the former American Idol contestant opened up about the death of the songwriter and musician, who died on February 17, at the age of 49 by suicide.

Now 37, Pickler said “One of the most beautiful lessons my husband taught me was in a moment of a crisis, if you don’t know what to do, ‘Do nothing, just be still’.” “I have chosen to heed his advice.”

Thanking her friends, family, and fans “for the countless letters, calls, and messages that you have sent my way”, Kellie added “It has truly touched my soul and it’s helping me get through the darkest time in my life. As many of you have told me, you are all in my prayers.”

The country singer and television personality also revealed that she planned to hold a memorial service for Kyle.

“I am planning an intimate memorial for my husband, which will happen later this fall, that is what Kyle would have wanted,” she stated, before signing off: “Love & Blessings, Kellie.”

Kellie and Kyle got married on a private island in the Caribbean in January 2011.
