Here's What Kelly Clarkson Admitted about Her Life Amid Divorce from Brandon Blackstock

Country musician Kelly Clarkson’s marriage of nearly seven years has sadly run its course. The star and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, are getting a divorce.

Kelly Clarkson, 38, has filed for divorce against her husband, Brandon Blackstock, in June 2020. On Sunday, September 13, 2020, the country musician opened up to “Today’s” Willie Geist about calling it quits in her marriage.

The Emmy Award winner noted how her divorce wasn’t a secret. She sadly confessed:

"My life has been a little bit of a dumpster ... personally, it's been a little hard the last couple months.”

SEEKING ADVICE

“The Kelly Clarkson Show” host shared how she’s been getting advice from her friends who’ve been through a divorce. She stated that she didn’t know how anyone could go through that process without a support system describing divorce as “the worst thing ever for everyone involved."

The divorce had something to do with the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Clarkson is asking for joint custody of their two children, River Rose, 6, and son, Remington Alexander, 4, in the divorce. Blackstone also had two children Seth, 13, and Savannah, 18, from a previous relationship.

KEEPING CERTAIN THINGS A SECRET

Clarkson explained on a September 11, 2020, interview with “The Los Angeles Times” that she wasn’t going to share too much about her divorce because of the children. She wanted to keep the children safe from any negativity that comes from divorcing as they’re right in the middle of it.

Besides being her husband, Blackstock was also the singer’s manager. In August 2020, a Twitter troll claimed “The Voice” coach was divorcing her husband because of her hectic schedule.

CLARKSON FILLS IN FOR COWELL

The original tweet was actually an announcement by the country singer that she would be filling in for Simon Cowell on “America's Got Talent.” Cowell had to take some time from the show after injuring his back after falling from an electric bike.

TROLL GETS SHUT DOWN

The troll noted how Clarkson’s marriage was ending because she didn’t have time for her husband because of her work schedule. The star responded by noting that shaming women with great work ethics were uncalled for.

WHAT CAUSED THE DIVORCE

In June 2020, a source informed “People” magazine how Clarkson’s Montana quarantining from the novel coronavirus disease had been stressful for her. The pandemic allegedly made matters worse between the couple.

HECTIC WORK LIVES

Another insider claimed the pair had been acting more like friends instead of a couple for a while. Their individual work was also blamed for causing a strain in their relationship.
