Kelly Clarkson Gets Honest About Her ‘Horrible’ Divorce

Kelly Clarkson revealed what she truly feels about her divorce with husband, Brandon Blackstock.

During her interview with Alicia Keys and "Untamed" author Glennon Doyle in an episode of "The Kelly Clarkson Show," the former "American Idol" winner discussed her experience going through her highly publicized split. 

She described her divorce as a "horrible" event in her life. 

"I'm going through one right now. It's horrible," she explained, via Entertainment Tonight. "There are so many hard parts. The hardest for me is the kids. That's the hardest for me."

The two-time Grammy Award winner and the 43-year-old talent manager share two kids, 6-year-old River Rose and 4-year-old Remington Alexander. 

Blackstock, on the other hand, has two teenage children from his ex-wife, Melissa Ashworth--17-year-old daughter Savannah and 13-year-old son Seth.

The "Breakaway" hitmaker also shared that as a mother who is undergoing divorce, her kids are her number one priority.

"I think, as women especially, we're trained... to take it all on, and you can deal with it, and you're fine, but it's your babies that you worry about," Clarkson shared.
