Kelly Clarkson Opens Up About Why Co-Parenting with Ex-Husband is ‘Tough’

by Charles Craighill

While talking to Khloe Kardashian on her show earlier, Kelly Clarkson dug deep about the struggles of parenting through a divorce. Both Clarkson and Kardashian have gone through pretty nasty breakups after having children with their partners. Both admitted to parenting being pretty “tough” without working together with their partners.

“You speak about co-parenting, and I’m doing that right now too,” Kelly Clarkson told Khloe Kardashian on the show. “It’s tough. … I know with me and Brandon, it’s just a difficult thing because we’re in different places, and it’s like, we both agree on the main things, but it’s a hard thing when you’re not together all the time, for me personally.”

While the two may be on the same page in some aspects, Kelly Clarkson admits that being in different places mentally makes it far more difficult to parent effectively. However, both have the children’s best interests in mind.

“As long as you make sure it’s about the children and their best interests, then we’re both on board.”

Kelly Clarkson and Khloe Kardashian Relationship History

Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock back in 2013. Together, they had two children, River Rose (6) and Remington Alexander (4). He acted as her music manager for all of their romantic relationship.

Unfortunately, they filed for divorce last summer, Clarkson claiming that it was due to irreconcilable differences. At first, both parties tried to settle the divorce peacefully in private, for the sake of their young children.

However, the whole situation turned sour in the fall when Starstruck Management Group sued Kelly Clarkson for over $1 million. Blackstock’s father founded the company and Blackstock worked for the company as Clarkson’s manager. The lawsuit regarded unpaid commissions, which Clarkson vehemently denies.

In fact, Clarkson clapped back saying that Blackstock defrauded her by overcharging her during their marriage.

In a somewhat similar vein, Khloe Kardashian dated NBA star Tristan Thompson and had a baby with him in 2018. However, after the controversy regarding Thompson’s cheating during Kardashian’s pregnancy, the couple split up.

Since their split, their relationship together remains complicated. They have been seen together in August of 2020, so some think they might be giving it another try. For the sake of their two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, True, we hope it works out.
