Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock's Split Came at a 'Stressful Time' That 'Exacerbated' Issues

Some were shocked to learn that Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from her husband of nearly seven years Brandon Blackstock in early June.

Now, a source is speaking out about what went wrong.

“It just came out of nowhere. Their marriage was so strong,” a source close to the couple told People. The source added that the Coronavirus quarantine shed a light on the issues they were having, saying, “It was a stressful time. [Quarantining in Montana] exacerbated any issues.”

“Things had changed in their marriage and the split was a while coming,” another insider added, citing work strains. “They both work so hard. It’s nearly impossible to enjoy each other, especially with the children needing constant attention.” They added that the couple had “been like friends for a while.”

Fans are also a bit confused by the separation date that was listed on the divorce documents.
