After being married for nearly seven years, Kelly Clarkson has decided to put an end to her marriage. According to NBC Miami, Clarkson and Blackstock first bumped into each other at the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2006 when Clarkson was rehearsing with Rascal Flatts. While the source says this is when their “love story” began, their relationship didn’t develop until six years later.
The source says that within 10 months of dating, Blackstock proposed to Clarkson in December 2012. Then, in October 2013, the couple tied the knot in Tennessee. At the time Clarkson shared with Cosmopolitan that “Brandon’s totally the one. I’ve never been so happy.”
Throughout the duration of their marriage, the couple appeared to have supported each other professionally and personally, says the news source, which is why so many were shocked to learn that they would be getting a divorce. The news source says that Clarkson “quietly” filed the documents in Los Angeles last week but has yet to address the news publicly. The couple does have two children together and Blackstock has two children from a previous marriage.
