Family and Personal Life
Daughter of parents Cynthia Morton and Clyde ‘Bo’ Raymond Pickler, Kellie was deserted by mom Cynthia when she was two years old. Her father who struggled with drug addictions and alcohol was abusive to her mom so they split up.
Pickler would then live with her grandparents as her dad was incarcerated in charge of several misdemeanors. In 1995, with dad Pickler in the prison, her mom came back to her life demanding the custody of her. She kept her for two years but after that, things didn’t work out-she was harsh to daughter Kellie so, the custody was restored back to her grandparents.
Growing up with the grandparents Clyde Raymond Pickler, Sr. and Faye Pickler in a tiny town, Kellie developed her musical background as a little girl. In 2004, Pickler earned her degree from North Stanly High School in New London, North Carolina. During her time in high school, she was a cheerleader and beauty queen.
Unlike other celebrity stars, Pickler is much opened about her private life. Her married life seems to be thriving through this entire time and that’s because she isn’t scared being in the limelight. Although Pickler is now happily married to songwriter Kyle Jacobs, previously she dated Nashville Predators Jordin Tootoo. The couple couldn’t take their relationship to next height breaking up later the year.
The euphoric country singer reportedly dated Jacobs for two and half years until exchanging the vows on a small ceremony on the private island in the Caribbean. Things are going really well between these two couples as their very own marriage is prepared to be the subject of the reality show ‘I Love Kellie Pickler’.
