Country Music Star Kellie Pickler’s Husband Kyle Jacobs Dead by Suicide

Country music star Kellie Pickler’s producer husband, Kyle Jacobs, has died by suicide at their home in Nashville, police said Friday night.

Cops said they received a 911 call at 1:21 pm from the house and found Jacobs, 49, with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound in a locked bedroom.

“Mr. Jacobs’ wife, Kellie Pickler, reported that she awoke a short time earlier, did not see her husband, and began looking for him. After she and her personal assistant were unable to open the door to the upstairs bedroom/office, the assistant telephoned 911,” police said in a statement.

Pickler, who parlayed a sixth-place finish on American Idol in 2010 into a country music recording career and a hosting gig on Sirius XM, married Jacobs in 2011.

Their relationship was the basis of a reality TV show, I Love Kellie Pickler, on CMT in 2015.
