- Kelly Clarkson announced she is divorcing her husband, Brandon Blackstock.
- The couple had been together for seven years.
- Based on her past comments about their marriage, this should not be shocking to anybody.
Kelly Clarkson is heading to divorce court.
“The Voice” judge and sometime singer has announced that she filed for divorce from her husband, Brandon Blackstock, after almost seven years of marriage.
But while she swears there’s “no drama” behind the divorce, a look into Clarkson’s past statements reveals that the couple hadn’t seemed to be too in love for a long time – and maybe even to begin with.
Kelly Clarkson Seemed To Be Going Through The Motions
While Kelly Clarkson — who shares two children with her soon-to-be ex-husband — tried to paint herself as a woman in love with her new man, the reality was a lot less pleasant.
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Clarkson revealed that when she met Blackstock back in 2006 — he is the son of her manager, Narvel Blackstock — he was still married to his first wife, Melissa Ashworth, with whom he has two children.
And while Kelly swore that she waited until he was single to “go on the prowl,” there were more than a few suggestions that Blackstock wasn’t a faithful spouse.
(To be clear, Melissa Ashworth denied the accusations, so let’s not paint Kelly Clarkson with the Khloe Kardashian brush quite yet.)
