Kelly Clarkson Gave a Telling Interview About "Stressful" Quarantine Before Filing for Divorce
More information about what may have led to Kelly Clarkson's decision to seek divorce from her husband Brandon Blackstock, as well as Clarkson's own comments on her emotional state in quarantine, has been released. People reported this morning that quarantine was really the breaking point for the couple who married almost seven years ago.
A source told people that "it was a stressful time. [Montana quarantine] exacerbated all problems."
A second source said the two of them behaved more like friends "for a while" and the work put a strain on their relationship. Blackstock is Clarkson's manager. "Things had changed in their marriage, and the separation was a long time coming," said this source. "They both work so hard. It's almost impossible to have fun, especially when the kids need constant attention."
Blackstock and Clarkson have two children together, the five-year-old daughter River Rose and the four-year-old son Remington Alexander. Blackstock's two children from a previous marriage were also quarantined.
Clarkson spoke to Glamor UK from the quarantine about how she was in a newly published interview that appeared to have been conducted before she applied for a divorce. Clarkson is back in Los Angeles now, people said today, where she focuses on work and her children.
"To be honest, I was on an emotional roller coaster," Clarkson said of her isolating time. "As a working parent, it was very difficult because I still do the same jobs. To be honest, it was exhausting to cook every meal and clean for toddlers and teenagers without a break! Everyone is now learning and teaching from home! So everything was crazy. "
She also talked about problems with the task (Clarkson's father left her when she was only six years old).
"I don't think you can get rid of this," she said. "I have people in my life who are addicted to certain things and do not go away. It is always there. It only controls your life for this existence in your life. You never wake up one day and are like" Okay, me I'm totally cool with the fact that I have big problems with the task because terrible things have happened. "So I write songs about it and you connect with all these people you don't know. Or even with an artist like in my team at The Voice, we have a very similar background and it's nice to be able to look at you and go: "Look, you can never get over it." It will always present itself. You get married and you say, "Oh, I have no one for the dance or to guide me down the aisle. You know what? I'm not going to get married, I'm just going to blow away. '"
"Things always blow your mind, but at the same time you have to realize that it made you what you are," Clarkson continued. "You are grateful and I am a very strong person. I am very confident and I was forced to find that in myself. I was forced to do it at a very early age. At some point, I say thank you to my father who passed away last year but I thank him because without all of that I couldn't have been what I am now so you just take your cards that are being given out and you do the best you can with them.
