Kelly Clarkson relied on Blake Shelton during her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.
Um, Brandon is Blake's manager too.
Kelly Clarkson recently filed for divorce from her seven-year-old husband Brandon Blackstock, and apparently she relied on her voice colleague Blake Shelton to get her through this difficult time. "Blake supported us and the friend who used her, as always," tells a Weekly source. "Blake and Kelly often joke that they are siblings."
Brandon Blake's manager is a bit awkward - which somehow puts him in an uncomfortable position. Not as uncomfortable a position as Kelly considering Brandon is her manager too. More complicated? Kelly relied on her former tour partner, Reba McEntire, who happens to be Brandon's stepmother. "[Kelly] brought the news to Reba," says a source. "Reba supports both Brandon and Kelly's decision to split up. She's afraid of it, but she can't judge it."
Apparently, the work was ultimately what came between Kelly and Brandon, and their quarantine time only aggravated the problems in their relationship. Still, their divorce appears to have been amicable so far, and a source told ET that they "don't cut each other off" and plan to "put the kids first".
