But at the same time (you’re) protecting these little kids that you adore, and they’re the most important thing to you.”During the Season 2 premiere of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in September, the singer took some time to briefly address her divorce, suggesting the split came as a surprise.
“2020 has brought a lot of change also to my personal life,” Clarkson said. “Definitely didn’t see anything coming that came.”On her show, Clarkson added that her divorce has been difficult because it also involves her children.
“What I’m dealing with is hard because it involves more than just my heart,” she said. “It involves a lot of little hearts. We have four kids, and divorce is never easy. We’re both from divorced families, so we know the best thing here is to protect our children and their little hearts.”
Though Clarkson is usually open about her personal life, she said she plans to keep talk of her divorce to a minimum.
