Kellie Pickler breaks silence on husband Kyle Jacobs’ death

Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs attend the 51st annual CMA Awards in 2017.

Kellie Pickler is breaking her silence six months after her husband, Kyle Jacobs, died at 49.

The country singer, 37, whose successful run on “American Idol” in 2006 launched her musical career, said on Thursday she has heeded her late husband’s advice to “do nothing; just be still” since he died in their Nashville-area home earlier this year. Metro Nashville Police Department said Jacobs died of an apparent suicide.

“I am planning an intimate memorial for my husband, which will happen later this fall, that is what Kyle would have wanted,” Pickler said in a statement to the Nashville Tennessean, part of the USA TODAY Network, through a representative.
