Kelly Clarkson’s ex-mother-in-law, Reba McEntire, opens up about her divorce.
Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from Brandon Blackstock in June 2020.
But during the seven years she was married to the former music manager, country singer Reba McEntire was her stepmother. McEntire was married to Blackstock’s father, Narvel Blackstock, for 26 years before they divorced in 2015.
Clarkson and McEntire have known each other for years. In 2007 they played a duet of Clarkson’s song “Because of You” together. They went on tour together and McEntire appeared on the Kelly Clarkson Show as a guest.
Now that they are no longer part of the family, are Clarkson and McEntire still well connected? “Kelly and I have a chat,” McEntire said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. She also announced that she is still close to both Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock.
“We write and I love them both and so I can’t play favorites because I’ve been friends with Kelly for a long time,” she said. “Apparently Brandon has always been my son. Even though he’s my stepson, I still love him like he’s all my … my blood so I pray for both of you because I love you both, ”she added.
In another interview with Extra, McEntire said of Clarkson and Blackstock, “I move for both. I hope they are happy and healthy and through this. I pray that everyone will give them the encouragement they can because they need it now, both of them do. “
Clarkson’s ex-husband has lived on the family’s $ 10.4 million ranch in Montana since the couple split up. According to E News! Clarkson, who bought the house, had wanted to sell it for some time. A court found that the monthly maintenance cost of the property was around $ 81,000.
On October 1st, E-News! reported that a judge upheld Clarkson and Blackstock’s prenuptial agreement and ruled that the Montana property belongs to Clarkson alone. The “Since U Been Gone” singer is now free to sell the property.
But the divorce proceedings weren’t all victories for Clarkson. According to E News! In July, a Los Angeles judge ruled that Clarkson must provide Blackstock with nearly $ 200,000 a month in spouse and child support. Originally, he had asked for more than twice as much.
According to Us Weekly, Clarkson was granted sole custody of her and Blackstock’s two children in November 2020.
Anyone who’s watched “The Voice” knows that Trainer Blake Shelton likes to brag about his many wins on the singing competition show. But Clarkson’s chances of winning this season are pretty good so far.
By the time she went into the Battle Rounds, she had more four-chair gymnastics contestants than any other coach: Aaron Hines, Girl Named Tom, Holly Forbes, and Gymani.
After Girl Named Tom and country singer Kinsey Rose faced each other in the Battle Rounds, Clarkson chose Girl Named Tom as the winner and used a save against Kinsey. Then, at a historic moment on The Voice, all three other coaches tried to steal Kinsey. But Kinsey decided to stick with Team Kelly.
