Kelly Clarkson ‘Can’t Imagine’ Getting Married Again During Divorce
Kelly Clarkson revealed how she feels about marriage right now. She’s unsurprisingly against the thought of doing it again since she’s going through a divorce with Brandon Blackstock. But she did get some advice on how to move forward with divorce and co-parenting from a celebrity.
Kelly Clarkson is divorcing Brandon Blackstock
The singer has been married to Blackstock since 2013. They share two children named River Rose and Remington. Clarkson then filed for divorce in June of 2019.
The former couple used to be isolated on their ranch in Montana during the pandemic. But Clarkson returned to California after filing for divorce. She has kept busy by filming The Voice and hosting The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Blackstock also worked as Clarkson’s manager. According to Today, she has since filed court documents claiming he needs to pay back all her commissions and fees he received because he allegedly operated illegally as her manager. The host admitted on her show that the process of divorce has been hard.
She said she didn’t see the divorce coming
Clarkson is back to being a host of her own show. She acknowledged her divorce to her fans and said it took her by surprise.
“As you probably know, 2020 has brought a lot of change also to my personal life,” she said in an episode. “Definitely didn’t see anything coming that came, but what I’m dealing with is hard — it involves more than just my heart, it involves a lot of little hearts. We have four kids, and divorce is never easy.”
The talk show host said she hopes to protect their children, which might mean she won’t talk about everything. She recently opened up about her feelings about getting married again with her celebrity guest.
Kelly Clarkson can’t imagine getting married again
Clarkson talked to Gwyneth Paltrow on The Kelly Clarkson Show. She revealed that she can’t imagine walking down the aisle again at the moment.
“You’ve been married for two years,” Clarkson said. “Coming from someone who’s literally amidst a divorce, I can’t even imagine doing it again.”
She continued, “So that’s amazing that you found love, and you found the space and the vulnerability — that level to say yes, and do it again. Was that hard for you?” Paltrow then said it was probably one of the “hardest” things she’s ever done.
Paltrow was married to Chris Martin from 2003 to 2016. She’s been married to Brad Falchuk since 2018.
Paltrow said she learned lessons from her divorce and then worked on herself to get to a new relationship. “And my husband, he requires that kind of presence and intimacy,” she said. “It was really hard for me. I wasn’t good at it before. I still struggle with it. But you will have it again, Kelly. It just takes time.”
Clarkson said she’s dating herself right now and loving it. She also asked Paltrow how she navigated co-parenting with her ex-husband. The actor said they had a therapist and the support of their families to get through it.
It sounds like Clarkson is just enjoying being single. That means marriage doesn’t seem to be a possibility to her for now.
