Sources say that Kelly and Brandon have been struggling in their relationship for a while now. They hoped to work it out, but quarantine reportedly made it worse. They were in quarantine together on the family ranch in Montana. Kelly worked on The Voice and her talk show virtually from there.
Now, it appears Kelly is back in Los Angeles working on her talk show virtually. According to court documents obtained by ET, the divorce was due to citing irreconcilable differences in her filing. Kelly also asked for joint legal and physical custody of the two children.
In addition, ET says, “Clarkson also asked the court to terminate the ability to award spousal support to Blackstock. She is asking the court enforce their premarital agreement and that both parties cover their own attorney’s fees. She’s also asking that her last name legally be restored to Clarkson, after taking Blackstock’s name. Property and asset division are unknown at this time and will be determined at a later date.”
