Growing up, country music sweetheart Kellie Pickler always had a troubled relationship with her parents. Her mother, Cynthia Morton, left Kellie when she was only two years old, leaving her in the care of her grandparents. Cynthia returned to raise Kellie for a while, but the court eventually gave custody back to her grandparents. 

Kellie's father, Clyde "Bo" Raymond Pickler Jr., was in and out of jail throughout her childhood. During her time on Dancing with the Stars in 2013, Kellie spoke to xfinityTV about her relationship with her father, saying that even though he had his "demons" she still cared for him deeply:

"I never thought he wasn't a good person. He has struggled with his own demons and I think we all have demons. Everyone's demon is different. My dad's just happens to be alcohol and drugs." 

Kellie said it was especially difficult during her time on American Idol, because some tabloids spread hurtful headlines about her father and her feelings for him. "We have always been close in spite of our circumstances," she said. 

Now, we're keeping Kellie in our thoughts upon hearing the news that her father was arrested over the weekend in Carolina Beach, North Carolina.

WCTI ABC News 12 reports that Clyde Jr. was arrested before midnight on Saturday (October 22). He was charged with "selling or delivering marijuana, possession with intent to manufacture sell or distribute marijuana, and possession of marijuana."

As of press time, Clyde Jr. was in the New Hanover County Jail on a $10,000 bond, and was set to make his first court appearance on Monday (October 24).

Once again, our thoughts and prayers go out to Kellie during this tough time.
