Kelly Clarkson Opens Up About Difficulties Since Filing For Divorce

In a new interview, Kelly Clarkson opened up about the difficulties she has faced since filing for divorce from Brandon Blackstock in June.

“I mean, it’s no secret my life has been a little bit of a dumpster. Personally, it’s been a little hard the last couple of months,” Clarkson told NBC’s “Today.”

“I’ve been talking to friends that have been through divorce. I don’t know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever for everyone involved,” she added.

The 38-year-old pop star and talk show host filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences” with her husband. She has also sought joint custody of their two children of 6 and 4 years.

Clarkson said she is planning to release an album next year pouring her emotions over ending her seven-year-long married life with Blackstock.
