Kelly Clarkson Addresses Her Divorce During Her Talk Show's Season Premiere

Kelly Clarkson is back in the studio for The Kelly Clarkson Show and she’s addressing the difficult year she’s had amid her divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock.

The 38-year-old singer kicked off her monologue on Monday (September 21) by saying, “Let’s just get this out of the way. 2020 has been a dumpster fire. Yup just all the words that I can’t say on this show just piled together and it’s on fire. That’s really what it’s felt like.”

Kelly then talked about how 2020 brought about change in her personal life.

“Definitely didn’t see anything coming that came,” she said. “What I’m dealing with is hard because it involves more than just my heart. It involves a lot of little hearts. We have four kids. Divorce is never easy. We’re both from divorced families so we know the best thing is to protect our children and their little hearts. So, I’m usually very open and I usually talk about everything. But in this case, I will talk a little bit here and there about how it affects me personally.”

She added, “But I probably won’t go too far into it, because I’m a mama bear and my kids come first. Although, I do love you all. But I am okay. Everybody keeps asking and I am. The answer is yes.”

Kelly also discussed how others can relate to her situation.

“It’s OK because it matters. It was something important,” she said. “I know a lot of you at home unfortunately have probably been through it, either as a kid or just as yourself in your own relationships. I feel you! And it is a bad connection to have with people.”

Kelly recently discussed the music she has been writing ever since her divorce.
