He killed himself

That’s horrific. I’m sorry for her loss.

He wanted to be like his beloved wife's career. That's love, y'all!

The world of heterosexuals is a sick and boring life!

That guy was no stranger to sex where man goes up a man.

Sad…but he is not famous enough to be considered #3.

Very sad

Terrible. I feel bad for gay guys who are forced to live in the closet.

by Anonymousreply 7February 18, 2023 3:23 AM

He lived. He subjugated himself to both the closet and his wife's shadow. He was present.

Thank God he didn't take her (and some pets) with him. Those types usually do.

Her childhood sounds utterly heart-wrenching. From Wiki:

"Pickler's parents split up the day after her second birthday. A year later, in July 1989, her mother vanished.

"During periods when her father, Bo, was incarcerated, she would live with her grandparents outside Albemarle, 45 miles (72 km) northeast of Charlotte.

"In 1992, Pickler's mother returned to Albemarle, but rarely made contact with her.

"I March 1995, with Bo Pickler in prison for armed robbery, her mother was granted custody. Pickler was in the fourth grade. In a February 2006 interview with the Charlotte Observer, Pickler said: 'She got custody of me for two years. During that time, she was physically and mentally abusive of me.

"In a 1997 court filing, Pickler's grandparents said that her mother had moved to Union County with her and treated her harshly. The court restored custody to the grandparents. Her mother vanished again, and Pickler has not heard from her since.

"Her father, whom she describes as an alcoholic and drug addict, served a three-year and nine-month prison sentence at Florida State Prison for aggravated assault and battery stemming from a 2003 stabbing incident. He was released on May 6, 2006, a week after her elimination from Idol.

"In an April 2006 interview with NBC Pickler said, 'One thing that's so important in life is we learn to forgive others. I ask the Lord every day to forgive me for my sins and for things that I've done wrong. And who am I to not forgive someone for what they've done? God tells us to love everyone.'"

After that much pain growing up, and now this? I fear she may follow suit. I hope not. But this is bad.

Agree with R9. I'm surprised he didn't hurt anyone else on his way out, as is so common with those types nowadays.

Her life story is tragic, R10. Wow.

Didn’t this poor guy deserve some post mortem privacy? Why did the asshole police have to make a statement about an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound?

by Anonymousreply 16February 18, 2023 4:49 AM

I am not usually on the Dl trope that every man who ever lived was gay,but this guy sent my gaydar into the red zone first time I saw him. I only have the vaguest idea of who kelli is,but I wouldnt wish her life on my worst enemy.This is one time when as a southerner I can say "bless her heart" and really mean just that.

She didn't hear the gun shot, just woke up around noon and conveniently had a personal assistant in the house to search for her husband. Weird.

R16 If they didn't, everyone on here (including me) would be asking how he died.

Anyone willing to drop a pet at moment's notice for a partner has always read as especially vile to me.

I don't know who he was, but that's really sad. I'm sorry for him and his family.

My condolences.

it seems kellie has been out of the spotlight for awhile, but at least she has stayed out of the tabloids, I commend her for that.

country fans are loyal to the core, there should be work available if she wants it.

Police in TN love a good death by suicide. Remember the photographs they released from Naomi Judd's home after she shot herself?

But RIP to him. I don't think you need to mention how someone kills themselves but I do support a growing movement in obits of "he dies after a long battle with depression" since that is usually the cause of death and a medical condition as any other

Only if he leaves a post-it note specifically barring Kellie from attending the funeral.
