Kelly Clarkson Discusses Her Kids’ Heartbreaking Reaction To Divorce

  • Clarkson and her husband of almost seven years, Brandon Blackstock, filed for divorce in June 2020, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
  • “I literally ask my kids every night when we’re snuggling, ‘Are you happy?’ And if you’re not, what could make you happier?” Clarkson said on the podcast.
  • “Sometimes they’ll say — especially the past two years, a lot of it, and it kills me and I want them to be honest, so I don’t ever say, ‘Oh God, don’t tell me that’ — but a lot of times it would be like, ‘You know, I’m just really sad. I wish mommy and daddy were in the same house.’ And they’re really honest about it. And I’m raising that kind of individual,” the “American Idol” winner continued.
