Kelly Clarkson just wants to be single y’all. The singer is making a desperate plea to the court amid her ongoing divorce battle from estranged husband Brandon Blackstock. She recently asked the court to declare her as legally single. Meanwhile, millions are on the line as their divorce wages on.
In June 2020, Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock. Since she spoke out about it on her daytime talk show, it hasn’t been an easy road. Clarkson has been in an ongoing battle with Blackstock and her father-in-law Narvel. Now, she’s filed a formal legal request for the judge to declare her as legally single amid this divorce.
Kelly Clarkson breaks free the chains of her divorce
Per TMZ, Kelly Clarkson filed the formal request in court on Friday, July 2. Miss Independent is seeking her own independence this Fourth of July weekend. Clarkson asked the judge to set aside the ongoing legal battle involving the financial settlement and the custody of the couple’s two children. She granted a request to have these issues resolved at a later date.
Clarkson’s lawyer, Laura Wesser, filed the court documents on Friday. Blackstock previously claimed their prenup as invalid. Millions of dollars are involved in this divorce. So far, the judge has not ruled on the validity of the prenup.
However, there isn’t an issue when it comes to custody and spousal support. In November 2020, the judge awarded Clarkson primary physical custody on a temporary basis. Blackstock moved to Montana as Clarkson remains in Los Angeles. The temporary order will eventually become permanent.
The former couple also hasn’t fought over spousal support. The judge granted Blackstock temporary spousal support, which may also become permanent. Clarkson and Blackstock married in 2013 and share two children. Their divorce is brutal and understandably, Clarkson wants it over as soon as possible.
