Kelly Clarkson Slays Chill-Inducing Cover Of 'Chain Of Fools' After Divorce News
Until we are destroyed by her divorce album, here Kelly Clarkson with a professionally coordinated cover of Aretha Franklin's hymn to the betrayed "Chain of Fools".
The singer returned to "The Kelly Clarkson Show" on Monday. She has reportedly applied for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock after nearly seven years of marriage.

While she has not yet dealt with speculation about her personal life, the "American Idol" alum apparently let the music speak during a performance from her Los Angeles home that she had recently taken off after the market split.
"I'm back from Montana and I'm holding it here in LA now," Clarkson said in the video. "It's a complicated time. It's a time to think, to listen and connect, okay? But sometimes we have to balance it out and take our time."
She was never a fool and then started a particularly passionate cover of the song. With her characteristic belt, she emphasized texts such as: "Five long years / You were my husband / But I found out, love / I am just a link in your chain. "
The fans quickly claimed that Clarkson's song selection was their way of responding to the news on their personal side and taking their theories into account on social media.
“I could be wrong, of course, but that seems to be a clear message. Most likely he played her, "wrote a fan." I feel bad for her. "
"If I listen to her while I know what she's up to, I respect her like crazy," commented another.
"Definitely a message here," said another. "She's gorgeous!"
Several outlets confirmed last week that Clarkson was requesting divorce from Blackstock on June 4 in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple, who married in 2013, share two children, daughter River Rose, who turns 6 on Friday, and son Remington Alexander, 4.
Everything seemed to be fine between the two since the family was locked on their Montana ranch.
On Friday, Clarkson was discovered for the first time since the news of her divorce when she led her dog around the neighborhood without her wedding ring.
