Kelly Clarkson Opened Up About Feeling “Limited” In Her Marriage After Previously Hinting At “Lies” And “Secrets” In The Relationship

Kelly and Brandon initially split in June 2020 after nearly seven years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in March 2022, and Kelly was granted primary physical custody of their two children: River Rose, 9, and Remington Alexander, 7.

Kelly was the one to file, citing “irreconcilable differences.” And soon after, she opened up on her talk show about just how hard she was finding the split, particularly with two young children. “2020 has been a dumpster fire,” she said. “2020 has brought a lot of change also to my personal life. Definitely didn’t see anything coming that came.

”Since then, she’s shared more about the end of her marriage in her music, alluding to “secrets” and “lies” in the relationship.“But now on the other side, I remembered I could fly / I told you I wanted you / But you needed me to need you / Your insecurity was the death of you and me,” she sings in a new track called “Me.”

And now, with the forthcoming release of her album bound to bring even more insight into the split, Kelly is getting candid about the demise of her and Brandon’s relationship. “I don’t feel like that’s necessarily the truth for all marriages; I just think that was for in my case,” she said.

“If you’re on the same path at the same time — and you’re actually working together, and every day communicating together and doing the work — I think that it could be beautiful.” Despite feeling she wasn’t able to be her authentic self in the relationship, Kelly made it clear that her ex wasn’t solely to blame for things not being as happy as they should have been.
