Kelly Clarkson, a singer who has won many Grammy Awards, and Brandon Blackstock, a musician who she had previously been married to, were engaged in 2012 and married a year later in October 2013 in Tennessee.
River and Remington were the names given to their newborn infants. The divorce was finalized in June of 2020, after the pair had been married for over seven years.
Clarkson, speaking after the breakup had been finalized for many years, characterized the period as a “rough couple of years.” In addition, after filed for divorce, she said that they had “irreconcilable differences.”
In March of 2022, the divorce between them was finally formalized, and she was awarded primary custody of the children. When she was questioned during an interview the same year about the things that she did over the summer with her children, she responded as follows:
“The children were in my company as well as that of their father. It was wonderful since our geographical distance typically requires them to do a lot of traveling, but the fact that we were both in Montana made up for it.
Clarkson is responsible for paying Blackstock $45,601 in child support each month despite having primary care of their children. In addition to that, she will continue to provide him with spousal support in the amount of $115,000 each month until January 2024.
According to records that were acquired by “TODAY” in March 2022, the divorce settlement between the mother of two children and the talent manager required the mother of two children to make a one-time payment of more than $1.3 million to the talent manager.
During an interview with Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, it was revealed that Blackstock did not buy his now-former wife a push gift while they were still together. Priyanka Chopra Jonas is the sister of Priyanka Chopra, who is married to Nick Jonas.
This information became public when Hart said that he had given his renowned wife, who is the mother of his two children, a motorbike as a push gift.
In addition, Chopra continued to describe what a push present is, and it seemed that the television celebrity was unaware of what the term meant.
She inquired as to whether it is presented to a woman who gives birth to a child by caesarean section. In addition, the doting mother screamed, “She got a motorcycle?!” while disclosing that”
I didn’t receive a gift. That ought to have served as a warning sign.
In spite of this, Clarkson chose to give the producer the benefit of the doubt, stating, “I honestly don’t think that he knew [about a push gift].” The Hollywood celebrity hesitated to release songs about their breakup after their relationship ended with Blackstock. During an interview on “TalkShopLive,” the star explained the reasoning for her reluctance, saying:
“I was just weeping so much that it was embarrassing. […] Approximately two and a half years ago, I composed a large amount of new music. After that, I believe that’s when the thinking kicked in, when we were like, “what’s appropriate and what’s inappropriate?”
During an interview in March of 2023, Clarkson was candid about how her son and daughter are coping with the effects of the divorce on their family. She discussed her experiences as a mother in an edition of the “Angie Martinez IRL” podcast. Her appearance can be seen here.
The songwriter was asked how she makes sure her kids are in touch with their feelings, and she described her method. When my children and I are tucked in for the night, one of the questions I always make sure to ask is, “Are you happy? And if you’re not, what could possibly put a smile on your face?’ It’s over with”
In an interview that took place in March of 2023, Clarkson spoke in an open and honest manner how her son and daughter are adjusting to the changes that the divorce has brought to their family. During one episode of the “Angie Martinez IRL” podcast, she spoke about the challenges and rewards of being a parent. This provides a glimpse of her looks.
The songwriter was questioned about the means by which she ensures that her offspring are emotionally intelligent, and she elaborated on her approach. One of the things that I always make sure to ask my children and myself before retiring for the night is, “Are you happy? And if you’re not, what could possible make you happy now that it’s all over?’ It’s done.”
When the native of Texas was questioned whether they frequently inform her if they are pleased, she conceded that this is not the case all of the time, and she said that it has been like a this for the last several years. She remarked, “It kills me – and I want them to be honest, so I never say, ‘Oh, God, don’t tell me that.’” “It kills me – and I want them to be honest.”
Instead of just stating that River and Remington were content, the singer who became famous for her single “Stronger” related how they answered to her query. It was discovered that
“Well, you know, I’m just so upset right now. I really miss having both of my parents under the same roof.
Clarkson expressed her appreciation for the authenticity of her children and emphasized the importance of her children being honest with her. The winner of “American Idol” comes from a dysfunctional family herself, so she understands the struggles that her children are going through as a result of her separation from Blackstock.
She assures them that she is aware that it is not simple, but that she is certain that they will ultimately triumph over it together. She also reminds them that they are “loved” by both her and their father.
