Kelly Clarkson’s breakup with Brandon Blackstock is giving her plenty of fodder for her forthcoming album as the two fight in court.
Clarkson and Blackstock married in October 2013 after dating for two years.
“I’m overjoyed. Before they exchanged married, she bragged to Us Weekly about how he was destroying her creativity. “I’m scribbling all this joyful nonsense. It’s excruciating.”
River was born to the couple in 2014, and Remington was born in April 2016. With ex-wife Melissa Ashworth, the talent manager has a daughter Savannah and a son Seth.
Clarkson told Us in February 2020, “I think motherhood transforms you in the greatest of ways.” “It’s made me stronger, but it’s also difficult. It’s the most difficult job in the world. It makes you unselfish, in my opinion. It forces you to prioritise.”
Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020, claiming “irreconcilable disagreements” after almost seven years of marriage, according to Us. The news came after the four-person family spent many months in Montana due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“I mean, it’s not like it’s a secret. In September 2020, the “Stronger” singer told Willie Geist, “My life has been a little bit of a dumpster.” “It’s been a little difficult for me the previous several months. I’ve been speaking with friends who have just divorced. I’m not sure how people deal with it without some sort of release, since it’s the worst thing that has ever happened to everyone involved.”
Clarkson said in the same month that she was attempting to “manage” a public breakup.
She told Hoda Kotb on the Today show, “You can ask anyone who’s gone through a divorce, I don’t believe anyone anticipates it.” “You envision yourself getting old with someone, and then life takes a turn for the worst. It’s really difficult for everyone, and you know how open I am. I strive to be honest and transparent… We all have our ups and downs. However, we have a total of four children living with us. There are a lot of hearts at stake, and you must use extreme caution…. We’re in the public glare, so trying to be honest while maintaining your privacy is difficult.”
