Pickler has been charged with three felony charges of stealing a motor vehicle, and one charge of obtaining property through false pretenses. He is being held on a $26,000 bond in the Stanly County Jail.

give me a break    

I'm sorry, but I think TMZ just scrapped the bottom of the pond with this one. Kelly has been humilated by her past enough and has even apologized publicly for her father. Why would you post this knowing she probably reads this sight and feed her insecurities and pain?

Kelly PIckler deserves a great deal of respect to have overcome a past like hers and reminding her of her parents faults are just completely unnecessary. Get some class TMZ and stop feeding the vultures that love to degrade a persons being.

Kelly, we can pick our friends, but not our family. We alllllll make mistakes in life. You have a chance to get out of poverty, and make something great out of yourself. DOn't look back, go forward and keep walking. Its to late for some people, but not you. You are a wonderful singer, and you are beautiful. Keep on the right track, and remember that all people have dirt in their back yards. Somethimes you just need to scratch the surface alittle. Don't get intimidated by anyone. If you wanted to, you could find dirt on anyone. Get out there and prove me right. Luck....Love...Happiness

hey #7 get your facts straight- Carrie is a small town girl herself- and she doesnt have to be a parent to relate to the song yanno. You dont have to be a PARENT to understand what she was saying in that song. Theres roughly 3,000 people who live in Checotah- where Carrie is from- that to me is a relatively small town. Did ya bother to listen to her CD?? Carrie is amazingly talented and if you think otherwise you need to get your head outta your behind!

Kelly you have a chance to keep rising above that life. American Idol was your answer to a prayer. Keep rising and keep away from that man, he's no father---he's just the sperm donor.
