American Idol star Kellie Pickler is singing the blues following the news that her father is again behind bars.
A rep for Pickler confirmed to Us Magazine that the America Idol alumâ€™s father is back in prison.
Clyde Pickler was initially released from a Florida prison last year after serving a three-year sentence for stabbing a neighbor. Currently, Pickler is in a Stanley County, North Carolina jail, where heâ€™s facing multiple charges, including assault on a female, communicating threats, and assault with a deadly weapon.
His wife filed charges last Wednesday, claiming that he threatened her with the following statement: "You know that guy I stabbed in Florida that didn't die? Well it's gonna be different this time because you are going to die."
Pickler is now being held on a $20,000 bond. His next court
appearance will be on February 28.
Meanwhile, Kellie is focusing on her singing career. The North Carolina native is currently scheduled to appear in concert with Brad Paisley in her home state in July.
