Friendly exes?

Kelly Clarkson has filed for divorce from her husband Brandon Blackstock, but that isn't stopping her from giving credit where credit is due.

Upon winning her a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show for "The Kelly Clarkson Show," Clarkson tweeted her gratitude, including singing out Blackstock for his support:

"OH MY GOSH!!!!!! What is happening?!!!! This is amazing!!! Thank y’all so much!!! And a MAJOR thank you to my entire crew that really is the reason I won!!! I can’t wait to celebrate with our whole crew when humans can congregate again!! This calls for a PARTY!!!!... Thank you so much to @BBlackstock for believing in me & convincing me to do @KellyClarksonTV show and @lifeofT for being the greatest friend/assistant #BestEmilyICouldHaveAskedFor 🤣 #DaytimeEmmys2020."

Earlier this month, Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock announced they are over after nearly seven years of marriage.

In court documents obtained by "Extra," Clarkson filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing "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 came 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.”
