Kelly Clarkson has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of seven years, Brandon Blackstock.
According to documents obtained by The Blast , the 38-year-old American Idol winner filed for divorce in Los Angeles last week, on June 4, 2020. Clarkson has not publicly addressed the news.
The couple began dating in 2012, were married in 2013, and share two children together – a five-year-old daughter, River Rose, and four-year-old son, Remington Alexander. Brandon also has two other children from a previous marriage.
Clarkson and Blackstock recently listed their Los Angeles home for sale in May 2020 for $10 Million.
During quarantine, the family has been spending time together at their Montana ranch. Clarkson regularly posted videos for The Kelly Clarkson Show, sharing their time at the ranch and the fun activities they were doing as a family.
The couple met at the 2006 ACM’s when Clarkson was rehearsing with Rascal Flatts. Blackstock was their tour manager at the time. However, their love story didn’t truly begin until six years later when they saw each other again. After ten months of dating, Blackstock proposed and Clarkson announced the news on social media in December 2012.
The couple exchanged vows less than a year later in October 2013 in Tennessee.
There are very few details about the reason behind the divorce, and we wish them both the very best in the future. Watch the full report from US Weekly below.
