Ex-Husband, Brandon Blackstock, Was Insanely Jealous Of Her Success
A source tells US Weekly that things got ugly.
Things got so contentious at the end of Kelly and Brandon's 7-year-marriage that she questioned his motives for being with her.
“The relationship had been on the rocks for a long time,” a source with knowledge of the situation told US Weekly.
"She was the high-income earner with a wildly successful talk show, and is the star of another hit show 'The Voice.' Brandon was extremely jealous of it and made her know it."
“Kelly can finally enjoy her success without feeling ashamed," the source added. "Kelly doesn’t take credit for her success but shares it with the team she works with. It’s just who she is.”
Clarkson reportedly makes $2-mill a month and questioned his motives.
“The marriage was really, really awful at the end. Kelly felt that she could no longer trust Brandon."
They are still in the middle of their nasty divorce. She is focusing on her shows and kids while he is tending to their former family farm.
