Kelly Clarkson warned ex Brandon Blackstock about biting divorce album

Kelly Clarkson took measures to make sure her former husband, Brandon Blackstock, was not caught off guard by her new album, “Chemistry,” which is focused on their divorce. During an appearance on “Today,” the 41-year-old singer revealed that she had a conversation with Blackstock via text before the album’s release, stating that it included more than just the negative aspects of their relationship. While acknowledging that Blackstock would likely not listen to the album, Clarkson admitted that she was careful about the songs she chose to include, taking into consideration the couple’s two children. Clarkson filed for divorce in June 2020 after seven years of marriage, and the divorce was settled in March 2022 after a two-year legal battle. The singer revealed that although she wrote the songs on “Chemistry” during that time, she waited until she had processed her emotions before releasing the album. Despite her attempts to put on a brave face, Clarkson admitted that she struggled with the divorce and is not currently interested in finding a new partner.

Kelly Clarkson made sure her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, wasn’t blindsided by her biting divorce album, “Chemistry.”

The 41-year-old songstress revealed on Thursday’s episode of “Today” that she and Blackstock had “a little text exchange” about the album before its release on Friday.

“I don’t even remember why or how it happened, but I was like, ‘Hey, I didn’t just diminish us down to one [thing],’” she explained.

“‘You know what I’m saying? It’s all in there, the ride. The beauty is in there, as well. Now there’s a lot of pain, but that’s what happens for all of us.’”

While Clarkson recognized that Blackstock probably won’t be listening to the scathing album, she did hold back a little for the sake of their children.

“It’s very personal. And I’ve always released personal music — I think I’m that kind of writer in general, everybody knows that,” she said.

“I think when you have kids … you kind of debate, ‘What am I going to do here?’ So I was very selective about the songs I picked for the album.”

Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after seven years of marriage. The pair — who share daughter River Rose, 9, and son Remington Alexander, 7 — finally settled their split in March 2022 after two years of court battles.

During that time, the “Because of You” singer started writing “Chemistry.” However, she had to sit with the songs for nearly three years before she was ready to share them with the world.

“I waited until I was like through it. So now it’s like a different chapter for me,” she explained. “So I had to wait in order to put this out, so that I could have interviews and just honestly so I wouldn’t be crying in all of them. It’s very intense going through that kind of loss, it’s grief.”

The “Because of You” singer admitted that while the album is very “personal,” she kept their kids in mind when choosing which songs to release.

Earlier this week, Clarkson told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that she “did not handle [the divorce] well” — despite trying to put on a happy face.

“I don’t know how people get through anything like that because I’m not going to say I did it gracefully. Behind closed doors by myself, it was not.”

Clarkson recalled often “crying so hard” that she “couldn’t even speak” while processing the fact that their marriage had failed.

Although the talk show host has had time to heal, she is “not looking” for love any time soon.
