 A dark cloud is hanging over KELLIE PICKLER’s big win on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Her ex-con dad, Clyde Pickler Jr., is a fugitive, The ENQUIRER has learned.

“This could be a real set­back for Kellie,” said a source close to the 27-year-old country music cutie.

“They were just starting to make amends for the years of heartache he’d caused her.”

Clyde, 48, has served several prison sentences through the years and had been on felony probation in Florida after his latest release from the pokey.

But authorities say he violated his probation.

“He’s currently listed as an ‘absconder’ for leaving the state without notification,” a representative of the Florida Department of Corrections told The ENQUIRER.

“That means he’s a fugitive.”

Clyde apparently went from Florida to North Carolina without telling his parole supervisor – and that immediately made him a wanted man.

A source told The ENQUIRER: “Knowing that her dad could get arrested at any moment and taken back to prison again will break her heart.”
