Kelly Clarkson Opens Up About Being Unhappy in Marriage to Brandon Blackstock

Kelly Clarkson is opening up more about her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

On her talk show earlier this week, the 38-year-old singer had author Glennon Doyle on to discuss her new book Untamed, which follows the breakdown of her marriage to Craig Melton and finding love with soccer player Abby Wambach.

“We’re trained to believe to avoid at all costs a broken family,” Glennon said, adding that she remained in her first marriage until she realized, “Oh my God, I’m staying in this marriage for [my daughter], but would I want this marriage for her?”

She continued, “We’ve all been trained to believe a good mother is a liar. I didn’t leave a marriage in spite of being a good mother; I left because I am a good mother.”

Kelly then replied, “That’s what I needed to see to make a step in my own life.”

She then went into talking about her own divorce from Brandon.

“This isn’t happiness, and we both deserve better,” Kelly recalled. “That line so hit home for me: I don’t want this for everyone in this scenario right now.”

Kelly also revealed the hardest part of her divorce.

If you didn’t know, there was a big update regarding Kelly Clarkson and custody in her divorce battle.
