Following her victory in the popular competition series in 2002, Kelly Clarkson initially gained widespread notoriety. Since then, the singer has sold millions of CDs and performed on tour all over the world. “Since U Been Gone,” “My Life Would Suck Without You,” and “Because Of You” are a few of her best-known tunes. One of the best and most well-known pop stars in the US, Clarkson has a phenomenal vocal tone and range.
In addition to being a very skilled singer, Clarkson has also made appearances in a number of movies and TV shows. Thanks to her endearing charm and humorous personality, Clarkson has grown to be one of the most adored ladies in the entertainment business. She served as a judge for the “The Voice” singing competition series and currently hosts her own talk show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
With over two decades in the spotlight, Clarkson’s private life has been widely exposed. In 2013, she famously wed Brandon Blackstock, a man who had previously been Reba McEntire’s stepson. In addition to the two younger children from Blackstock’s first marriage, they also had two older children: River, 8, and Remington, 6.
But regrettably, they were not a happy couple, and in June 2020, Clarkson requested a divorce from Blackstock. Since then, they have been involved in a contentious custody and asset dispute. In October 2021, Clarkson won their $10.4 million Montana ranch, which was a major source of contention in the divorce proceedings, as well as primary custody of their children.

In an interview with Variety in September 2022, Clarkson discussed how having a child by herself altered her perspective on work. The Emmy-winning host claimed that she made the decision to move the show back 30 minutes specifically so she could spend more time with her kids and drive them to school.
“Then my nanny comes and gets them. At least I get to spend the mornings and evenings with them. Don’t hide anything from your kids, I think, is the most essential lesson I’ve learned in therapy, especially through this divorce. It’s OK if kids see you weep or if they can see you’ve had a hard day, but obviously don’t talk about things you shouldn’t talk about,” she said.
