The Voice judge Kelly Clarkson confirmed her suffering marriage with Brandon Blackstock. The singer filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court last June 4.
After seven years of being married to Blackstock, Clarkson decided to end it, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple shares two kids, River Rose and Remington Alexander.
Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock first met in a rehearsal for the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2006. The couple dated for 10 ten months and got engaged in 2012. They married the following year in October with a barn-inspired ceremony.
The couple has been dealing with marriage problems for months
For months now, Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock appeared to have problems in their marriage and in working out their differences. The couple hoped to fix their relationship by spending time together away from LA. However, the change in the environment “was actually detrimental.”

According to the source:
“The constant time together seemed to make an already challenging situation worse. Clarkson’s booming career “definitely helped to keep her mind off things, but this recent downtime gave her the time she needed to think about her life and her marriage.”
Even though Kelly Clarkson and her husband have been dreading the divorce process, the singer is determined to make it happen. She finds the divorce as her only option to make things right.
The couple is quarantining with kids in their Montana Ranch
At the onset of the pandemic, the couple decided to stay in their Montana Ranch with their kids. Clarkson was even filming episodes of her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show from their gorgeous home. Furthermore, the singer complimented their home, saying:
“It’s a really beautiful ranch and it’s a nice getaway for our family. It’s something Brandon and I have dreamed about since we were both kids. This is what we would call home.”
Kelly Clarkson also revealed that her stepchildren, Seth, and Savannah are also staying at the ranch house.
Kelly Clarkson believed Brandon was the one
Just a year after their wedding, the singer opened up about her feelings with Brandon. She revealed that she was deeply convinced that Brandon is the love of her life. She said:
“Brandon’s totally the one. I’ve never been so happy.”
Clarkson also recalled her first meeting with Brandon. The pop star revealed that she was not looking for a friend but a lover. Although Brandon is Kelly’s first husband, the music manager has been married before to his first wife, Melissa Ashworth.
