Back in the Dating Scene
Nearly two years after her divorce, Kelly Clarkson is ready to explore the dating scene again. Since her split from Brandon Blackstock in March 2020, Kelly has focused on her children and career. Now, she’s ready to find someone special to share her life with.
Rebuilding and Finding Love
Kelly has been working on rebuilding her life after her messy split with Brandon. A source close to her says the breakup was more complicated and drawn out than expected.
Kelly wants to use a matchmaker to meet someone over the summer. She has a tight schedule and wants to meet someone through a trusted connection.
Kelly’s schedule will be more flexible in June when her show goes on break. She’s looking forward to having the summer to herself and exploring new romantic possibilities.
Change of Heart
Kelly’s attitude towards dating has changed since last fall. In September 2023, she stated that she was not ready to open her heart to love again. She cited her busy schedule and the challenges of starting over after a divorce.
Explaining Divorce to Young Children
Kelly shares two children with her ex-husband, Brandon: River Rose, 9, and Remington Alexander, 7. During a podcast appearance, Kelly discussed the challenges of explaining divorce to young children. She said that kids often ask questions about love and why their parents don’t love each other anymore. Kelly tries to explain that love can change and that she still loves her children’s father, even though they don’t love each other in the same way anymore.
