Kelly Clarkson doesn’t hide the truth about her divorce.
The “Because of You” singer recently thought about her breakup with River, 8, and Remington, 6, father Brandon Blackstock. Kelly said that River and Remington sometimes tell her the heartbreaking truth about how they feel about their parent’s divorce.
“Every night when we’re cuddling, I ask my kids, “Are you happy?” And if you aren’t, what could make you happier?'” Kelly talked about it on The Angie Martinez IRL Podcast on March 13.
“Sometimes they’ll say, especially in the last two years, and it kills me, but I want them to be honest, so I never say, “Oh god, don’t tell me that,” but a lot of the time they’ll say, “You know, I’m just really sad. “I wish mommy and daddy lived together.
Kelly said that she’s glad they’re honest because “they’re really honest about it.” “I’m bringing up that kind of person. I want you to tell me the truth.”
Kelly said that it may be hard to hear that from her kids, but she can understand how they feel because she grew up in a similar situation.
“I just sit there and I’m like, ‘I get it. I also come from a family that has split up. I get it. That’s bad. But we will figure it out. And we both love you so much,’ “Kelly said so. “I think we should talk to them and not treat them like kids. Not like adults, because they’re not, but also not like kids. These aren’t small emotions. Those are very big feelings and big emotions.”
Kelly and Brandon will end their seven-year marriage in June 2020. The Voice star who filed for the divorce said at the time that they couldn’t work out their differences. According to court documents that E! News was able to get, the couple’s divorce was finalized in March 2022.
Kelly’s kids not only tell her how they feel about the situation, but they also ask her questions.
“My kids always ask me, ‘Does that mean you no longer love him?'” Kelly told us. “No, I don’t know if that goes away,” I say.
Kelly said she is open to new love in the future, but she is sure she will never marry again.
The musician said, “I’m not going to get married.” “As a child, I lived through a couple of divorces in my own family. I’d love to meet someone special. I’d love to find someone, fall in love with them, and do that thing, but I have kids, so I can’t.”
Kelly said that she’s not really “against marriage”; she just wants what’s best for her children.
She said, “I didn’t have the best experiences with step-situations and remarrying, and I didn’t have the best experiences growing up.” “I’m not going to do that to my kids. I’d love to find love, but I don’t want another guy living with my kids.”
