Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock Split

Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock Split

Singer Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock are over after nearly seven years of marriage.

In court documents obtained by "Extra," Clarkson filed for divorce in Los Angeles last week.

Clarkson cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. While their separation date is "TBD," she is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their children River Rose, 5, and Remington Alexander, 4. Along with requesting that the judge not grant spousal support to Blackstock, she is asking that they split the cost for legal fees.

The news comes just weeks after Clarkson put their Los Angeles home on the market for $10 million. The 9,839-sq.-ft. home has a movie theater, gym, pool, and fire pit.

Clarkson last posted about Blackstock in March, sharing a pic of Brandon and their daughter River and writing, “Quarantine hair don’t care 💁🏼‍♀️ Daddy’s giving River riding lessons and she loved it.”

During their quarantine, they were staying in Montana.

In happier times, Clarkson dished on their sex life last year. During an interview with “The Voice” winner Brynn Cartelli on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Kelly was asked what she does before bed.

She gave a very candid answer, saying, “I was single for many years, so… I have children and how one makes children is generally what I do before bed."

"That's not a lie," Kelly emphasized. "That's real and it's not weird. It's natural."

In 2017, Kelly opened up on her relationship with Brandon, who she started dating in 2012. At a show at the Highline Ballroom in New York City, she said, “This isn't a downer to anybody I dated before him, but I'm just going to be real: I never felt like, honesty, sexually attracted to anybody before him. And I'm not downing my exes. You know, everybody's different. But there was something about him."

She went on, “I honestly thought I was asexual — I'd never been turned on like that in my whole life. I was like, 'Oh, that's that feeling... okay! That's what they were talking about in "Waiting to Exhale." I just got it.' I just didn't have a clue."

Kelly and Brandon tied the knot in 2013.
