THE Voice judge Kelly Clarkson has filed for divorce from her husband, Brandon Blackstock, The Sun can report.
The singer, 38, married the talent manager, 43, in 2013, and the pair has two children together: daughter River Rose, 5, and son Remington Alexander, 4.
According to documents obtained by The Sun, Kelly filed papers in Los Angeles on July 4.
She cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split, and wrote just "TBD" for the date of separation.
The star requested joint legal and physical custody, but asked the court not to award Brandon any spousal support.
The wealthy superstar also requested the court enforce a prenup signed on October 15, 2013, and restore her maiden name, Kelly Clarkson, from her current legal name, Kelly Blackstock.
The Blast, was first to report the news.
This split comes after Kelly decided to spend her birthday completely alone in April, revealing the strange development on Late Night with Seth Meyers last month.
She told the late night talk show host: "I looked at my husband because it was a rough week of work and non-stop everything, and I said, 'I don't want to cook one damn meal, I don't want to clean one article of clothing, I don't want to do anything.'
"For my birthday, I literally asked to be left alone which is funny because we're all in isolation but I'm not in isolation because I'm constantly surrounded by people.
"I was alone and I enjoyed it. I did nothing but eat stuff that made me gain ten pounds and I watched whatever I was watching.”
Just last month, the Voice judge put her $10 million LA mansion on the market while she and her family were quarantining in Montana.
Early in the coronavirus pandemic, Kelly and Brandon were isolating at the Montana mansion they picked up a year and a half ago named Vintage Valley.
They had been holed up in the home with the two kids they share together, as well as his two teens, daughter Savannah and son Seth, from his previous marriage to Melissa Ashworth.
The Grammy-winning singer, who catapulted to superstardom after winning season 1 of American Idol in 2002, no longer follows Brandon on Instagram, though she hasn’t unfollowed him on Twitter just yet.
In 2012, Kelly started dating Brandon after knowing him for years through her former manager and his father, Narvel Blackstock, as well as through Brandon’s former stepmom, Reba McEntire.
After a year together, the couple tied the knot at Blackberry Farm, a luxury resort in Walland, Tennessee, on October 20, 2013.
Brandon, a talent rep like his father, took over as Kelly’s manager after they got married.
He also manages her fellow Voice coach, Blake Shelton.
In 2014, the I Dare You singer welcomed her and Brandon’s first child together, daughter River Rose.
A couple of years later, son Remington was born.
Aside from her singing competition coaching gig, Kelly also currently hosts The Kelly Clarkson Show, which Brandon also works on as an executive producer.
