Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock: We Are Eloping!

Kelly Clarkson has revealed that she and fiance Brandon Blackstock have scrapped plans for a big wedding and instead plan to elope!

“We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, ‘So, we change our minds and we want to elope.’ We just got so overwhelmed by it – all the decisions,” the 31-year-old singer told People.

“We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking,” Kelly added. “Then honestly the planning – I have a Christmas record coming out. I’m doing a bunch of stuff with State Farm right now. We have two kids who just started school. We’re going to all these football games and soccer games and volleyball games and [Brandon]‘s got one of the biggest artists [Blake Shelton] in country music. He’s flying everywhere.”

Kelly says that she “sent out an engagement photo to everyone and said, ‘Thank you so much for understanding, but it’s just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister.’”

    “Kelly Clarkson has revealed that her and fiance Brandon Blackstock have…”

    Y’all need some better editors up in here.

  • Jamie

    hope she gets a prenup

  • Jen

    …pregnant because she won’t be able to fit into that wedding dress.

  • sillyme

    Umm, isn’t the definition of eloping to go away and get married secretly? If you’re announcing it in advance, it’s not really eloping.

  • Verity

    So you make it public and then elope? Next time keep your business to yourself.

  • seriously

    Someone is preggo, she is looking heavier than a ROYALE with cheese.

  • Sheri

    I can understand why they would choose to elope (I myself eloped), but to send out “save the date” notices … then another notice saying that it is only going to be them, the kids and the minister almost sounds like they are uninviting their guests. Some guests might be offended by this … I think she could have handled it a bit better or differently. They definitely need to do a big party or something so those same people can attend that she already invited.

    I guess they can do what they like. Shame though because I was looking forward to seeing a big beautiful country wedding with Blake Shelton doing the ceremony. Bummed a little but wish Kelly and Brandon the best of luck and a lifetime of love and happiness.
