The singer and Brandon have called off their seven years of marriage. As per the report, they have already filed for divorce. The duo mentioned ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the split on the documents. The couple met back in the 2006 Academy of Country Music Awards. At the time, the music manager was still married to his first wife.

After six years of their first meeting, the duo met again. This time both of them were single which became an instant spark for both of them. In October 2013, Kelly and Brandon tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with their friends and family.

After a year of their marriage, they welcomed their first daughter together. Furthermore, after two years, they again became parents to a baby boy. The parents of two will co-parent their baby after their split.
