Kelly Clarkson admits she's suffering from anxiety but working through it with 'writing' as she copes with messy divorce

KELLY Clarkson has revealed she's turned to writing to help battle anxiety.

The 38-year-old singer opened up on her mental health struggles during an episode of her talk show.

Kelly appeared alongside Beth Behrs as the two discussed the importance of managing their mental health.

She said: "I literally don't know how anyone goes through anything horrible or big in their life without having an outlet, like I have with writing.

"I was talking to Gwen [Stefani] the other day on The Voice. We're both writing for our next albums and it's like, even if no one hears it, it's so therapeutic and it's so good for you. That's your outlet."

Kelly later added how artists often deal with panic attacks ahead of performing on stage, saying: "Especially musicians, yeah."



Back in July, Kelly admitted her mental health had been up and down following her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

She also revealed that she was suffering from "depression" during lockdown.

The mother-of-two shared: "I have suffered from depression and it’s one of those things where I don’t do well.

"And I’m an extrovert, so this not seeing humans and not interacting, I really feed off of people’s energy and I love the people that I’ve chosen to surround myself with in my life.



"So, yeah, I definitely missed even like my glam squad, you know?"

The Voice judge also previously touched upon her mental health in a candid chat with Demi Lovato.

Earlier this year, Kelly filed for divorce from her music manager husband after seven years of marriage.

According to documents obtained by The Sun, the star cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.

She requested joint legal and physical custody, though asked the court to not award Brandon any spousal support in the paperwork.

Despite trying to keep their divorce as amicable as possible, it's since been revealed the star is being sued her management company, which is owned by Brandon's father.

According to Variety, the complaint claimed that the American Idol winner has not paid the full commission this year for her work on The Voice and The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Starstruck Management Group further claimed that Kelly has paid the firm $1.9 million this year, but owes another $1.4 million. It also states that she will owe at least $5.4 million by the end of the year.
