Now that Kelly Clarkson has opened up about divorcing her husband, Brandon Blackstock, stories emerge that the daytime host and Country superstar had been dealing with marital problems for months.
The first sign of trouble was when Clarkson put both family homes up for sale, one in December 2019 and the second in May.
It was reported that the couple had disagreed over having more children. And during her 38th birthday Clarkson made a comment about how nice it was, “to be alone on her birthday.”
The couple had thought that quarantining outside of Los Angeles would make things better for their relationship. However, it just made things worse, according to an unnamed source. In a Glamour UK interview, weeks before the divorce announcement, Kelly talked about quarantine life. She said, “I have been on an emotional rollercoaster,” she said. “This has been really hard as a working parent because I’m still doing all the same jobs. It’s been exhausting, honestly, cooking every meal and cleaning nonstop after toddlers.”
Clarkson continued, “It’s a choice — whatever cards you’re dealt with (sic), what you do with them. And we all don’t make those right choices all the time … You just take your cards you’re dealt, and you do the best you can with them.”
