Kelly Clarkson’s kids questioned ‘definition of love’ after Brandon Blackstock divorce

Kelly Clarkson reveals that her divorce from Brandon Blackstock led to difficult conversations with her children about love.

During a recent episode of the “Podcrushed” podcast, the 41-year-old singer shared that her split from the talent manager resulted in uncomfortable discussions at home.

“When you go through a divorce, especially with young kids, the concept of love comes up frequently,” she explained to the podcast hosts.

Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.

After two years of court battles, the couple, who have a nine-year-old daughter named River Rose and a seven-year-old son named Remington Alexander, finally reached a settlement in March 2022.

Clarkson shared that her kids asked her questions like, “So you don’t love daddy anymore?”

She responded by saying, “I love that Daddy gave me you two. We just don’t have the same feelings for each other anymore. It’s just different now.”

The hardest part for Clarkson is when she sees the confusion on her children’s faces. They wonder, “Can your love for me change?”

“It’s difficult. And then they ask, ‘Why don’t I have a grandpa from you? You told me that love is different between a parent and a child than between a husband and a wife. But it’s not because your dad left you,'” she explained, referring to her own strained relationship with her late father, Stephen, who passed away in 2019.

Last month, Clarkson revealed that she relied on antidepressants to cope with the divorce.

She shared her struggles during an episode of the “Las Culturistas” podcast, saying, “I couldn’t stop crying. I had to cancel some of my commitments because I couldn’t handle it. I had to put aside my pride and confront my childhood issues.”

Clarkson also mentioned that she took Lexapro, an antidepressant, for about two months.

In a previous interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, she admitted that she did not handle the divorce well and struggled to maintain a positive facade.

Kelly Clarkson says her divorce from Brandon Blackstock sparked many questions from her kids about love.

Appearing on last week’s “Podcrushed” podcast episode, the 41-year-old said her bitter split from the talent manager forced a lot of uncomfortable conversations to take place at home.

“When you do go through a divorce, especially with young kids, the definition of love comes up quite a bit,” she told hosts Penn Badgley, Nava Kavelin, and Sophie Ansari bring.

The “Kelly Clarkson Show” host 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.

Clarkson said the divorce has forced their kids to ask her, “So you don’t love daddy anymore?”

“I love that Daddy gave me you two,” she recalled telling them in response. “We just don’t like each other like we did. It’s just different now.”

The “Since U Been Gone” hitmaker said the hardest part is when “you can see it on their face. They question, ‘Can your love change for me?’”

“It’s hard. and then it’s hard when they go, ‘Why don’t I have a grandpa from you? You told me love is different with a parent and a child than with a husband and a wife. But it’s not because your dad left you,’” she explained, referring to her relationship with her estranged dad Stephen, who died in 2019.

Clarkson last month said she relied heavily on the help of antidepressants to get through the divorce.

“I looked at my therapist, and I just couldn’t stop sobbing, and I was like, ‘I actually had to cancel some of the other day because I couldn’t stop crying. I cannot do this,’” the singer said on the “Las Culturistas” podcast.

“And it was one of those things where I really had to put my pride aside and, like, all my childhood issues of whatever.”

“I was on Lexapro for, like, I think, two months,” she added.

A week prior, the singer told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that she “did not handle [the divorce] well.”

“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,” she said, admitting she tried to put on a happy face.
