Kelly Clarkson‘s first task as a single woman included picking up dog poop. The 38-year-old was spotted walking solo with her dog and had a poop bag in her hand on Friday, June 12, just one day after filing for divorce from Brandon Blackstock. The “Since You Been Gone” singer was photographed walking around her Los Angeles neighborhood wearing a pair of loose overalls, a tight olive-colored shirt, and slip-on sandals. Looking visibly upset, the star held it together for her walk with Henry.
This is the first time that Kelly Clarkson has been seen since filing for divorce from Brandon Blackstock last week after nearly seven years of marriage. Sporting sunglasses to shield her eyes, the talk show host wore her highlighted hair up in a messy bun. As The Blast reported, Kelly Clarkson wants her prenup enforced in their divorce. The duo made sure their finances were separate just in case something like this happened days after their barn-inspired wedding back in 2013.
Kelly Clarkson is also asking the court for joint legal and physical custody of their two children — five-year-old daughter River Rose and four-year-old son Remington Alexander. According to sources, their split is totally drama free. Sources told The Blast that there’s no significant incident regarding their decision to split, as in no one cheated, and their divorce is completely “amicable.” We’re also told that the former couple’s friends are completely blindsided by the divorce news. One source said it didn’t appear the two were having any issues and they are shocked that Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce.
The talk show host also asked to terminate any chance of her paying spousal support to Brandon Blackstock. Of course, he’s country superstar Reba McEntire’s stepson so he’s not hurting for money either. As for property, they will sort that out later just like the date of their separation. As of now, the date they separated is not listed but could be significant. Kelly Clarkson has also checked the box indicating both parties will pay for their own attorney in the divorce.
Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce on June 4, despite spending plenty of time with Brandon Blackstock lately. She recently revealed the duo were shacking up at their ranch in Montana during quarantine with their two kids, as well as Clarkson’s stepchildren. The ex-couple started putting divorce motions in place last month when they put their family home in Los Angeles on the market. According to the listing, their Encino mega-mansion features eight-bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and two half baths. Its currently listed at just under a whopping $10 million!
