Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock earlier this month, and over the weekend she was photographed out in Los Angeles for the first time without her ring. Check out pictures here.
People are still pretty shocked about the split, but a source tells “Entertainment Tonight” the pair decided to call it quits “after realizing the relationship hasn’t been working for a while."
“Kelly and Brandon work together non-stop and that became a contention in their relationship," the insider shares. "Brandon is the EP of her show as well as her manager. Also, Kelly has always brought up wanting more children, which Brandon doesn't."
The source says the couple had hoped quarantining together in Montana would make things better, “but instead the change in environment was actually detrimental,” noting, “The constant time together seemed to make an already challenging situation worse.”
Finally the insider says starting the divorce process was something “they’d both been dreading," but adds, "Kelly knew she just needed to follow her heart and finally realized divorce was her only option."
