The form was initially filed on February 14th – Valentine’s Day – so it looks like Kelly wants to spend the new year focusing on some self-love.

When it comes to turning 40, Clarkson is stronger than ever.
“I’m not concerned about it,” the singer said. “My life gets exponentially better each year. Which is what should happen, you should get wiser.”
She continued, “I’m really excited. Everything’s in a good place now.”
Given the monumental birthday, the “Kelly Clarkson Show” host is ready to do a “whole thing.”
“I was gonna go low key and then, I just had a really fun time with my girlfriends in San Francisco,” she said. “So, I’m like, maybe I’ll do that again.”
Her current work schedule is packed to the brim, so an extended vacation to somewhere tropical just isn’t in the cards right now.
In 2022 alone, Clarkson has legally changed her name, settled her divorce and debuted a new TV show.
Earlier this month, the singer and her estranged husband, Blackstock, settled their divorce with the mother-of-two agreeing to vaccinate their children against COVID-19.
According to the agreement, Clarkson will pay Blackstock a massive one-time payment, and ongoing child support. On a monthly basis, she will pay her ex-husband child support for the couple’s two children — River Rose, 7, and Remington Alexander, 5.
Clarkson began paying Blackstock a total of $45,601 per month, for both children, on February 1.
