Early Life

Kelly Brianne Clarkson was born in Fort Worth, Texas on April 24, 1982. She is the youngest of three children, and after her parents divorced, she was isolated from her siblings. Kelly stayed with her mother, while her brother and sister moved in with other family members. Clarkson was raised as a Southern Baptist, and church was a big influence in her early life. In middle school, she joined the chorus, which was her first exposure to singing. Clarkson participated in numerous of the school’s musicals and talent events when she was in high school. Various universities offered scholarships to Kelly Clarkson due to her singing ability, but she declined them all.

Clarkson prioritized making a demo reel after graduating from high school in 2000. Kelly performed a variety of jobs to fund the recording sessions and gained some attention from record labels. She turned down a couple of job offers because she was afraid of being categorized and commercialized. She moved to Los Angeles in 2001, believing she would find more possibilities there. Record labels rejected her and her 5-track demo reel after she approached them. Later, she had to return home due to financial issues. During this difficult time, she worked as a movie theater hostess and as a cocktail waitress.

Kelly Clarkson’s pals pushed her to audition for “American Idol” not long after she returned home. It was the show’s first season, and the creators were still winging it as the series went. Clarkson eventually made it to the final round and won the entire competition, officially establishing her career. Simon Fuller, the show’s creator, signed Clarkson to RCA Records as a “American Idol” champion. “A Moment Like This,” her debut hit, eventually reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100. It was the best-selling single in the United States in 2002.

Clarkson released her debut album, “Thankful,” in 2003. The album went double platinum, and critics applauded Clarkson’s powerful vocal powers. The album included songs such as “Miss Independent” and “The Trouble With Love Is.” Soon after, she forged her own way in the music industry, breaking connections with Simon Fuller and seeking new management. The end product was a new, one-of-a-kind record called “Breakaway.” In 2004, critics appreciated the release of the album. It was also Clarkson’s most financially successful album, selling more than 12 million units worldwide. Following the success of her new album, Clarkson embarked on a lengthy tour from 2005 to 2006.

Kelly Clarkson’s third album acquired a darker tone, which irritated RCA management. They wanted Kelly to go for a more mainstream sound, and they were upset when Clarkson refused to accept any professional influence in the creative process. She wanted to do things her way, and as a result, RCA did not push the album as aggressively as they had previously. The album was titled “My December” and was released in 2007. Although it received positive reviews and went platinum, it only sold 2.5 million sales worldwide, a far cry from Kelly’s previous success with “Breakaway.”

With her next album, “All I Ever Wanted,” Clarkson reverted to a more mainstream sound. With its lighter tone, the album topped the Billboard Top 200 and gained commercial success, earning it platinum certification once more. Clarkson’s work was likewise lauded by critics. Clarkson traveled in promotion of the album from 2009 to 2010.

Clarkson launched her second album, “Stronger,” in 2011, after working with Jason Aldean on the enormously successful country song “Don’t You Wanna Stay.” She won a Grammy for her efforts.

Clarkson received considerable acclaim in 2012 when she performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the Super Bowl. She also published her first greatest hits album this year.

Clarkson released a holiday album called “Wrapped in Red” in 2013, and it instantly went platinum. Kelly Clarkson released her seventh and last album with RCA in 2015. Her album debuted at number three on the Billboard Top 200 for the third time. She then signed with Atlantic and published “Meaning of Life” in 2017.

Film Career

Kelly Clarkson has worked in film since the start of her career. In the critically acclaimed 2003 movie “From Justin to Kelly,” she landed her first significant role. Clarkson has also appeared on several TV shows, including reality shows like “The Voice” and subsequent seasons of “American Idol.” Clarkson is also a prominent voice actor, having appeared in animated films such as “The Star” and “Trolls World Tour.” She also has her own show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”

Children’s Books

Kelly Clarkson signed a book deal with HarperCollins in 2016. “River Rose and the Magical Lullaby” was her debut children’s book. In 2017, she published her second novel, “River Rose and the Magical Christmas.” She has expressed a desire to write additional children’s books in the future.

Personal Life

Kelly married Brandon Blackstock in October 2013 following a nine-month courtship. Brandon is the son of Kelly’s former manager, Narvel Blackstock. For many years, Narvel was married to Reba McEntire. Kelly and Brandon revealed in November 2013 that they were expecting their first child together. On June 12, 2014, their daughter was born. On April 12, 2016, they welcomed a son.


Kelly requested a divorce in June 2020. In November 2020, a judge awarded Kelly primary custody of their two children. Regretfully, Brandon submitted a $430,000 monthly child support request at the same time the custody decision was made. The total amount requested was $135,000 in child support and $301,000 in spousal support. He also requested $2 million in attorney’s costs.

A few weeks later, Kelly responded by filing a complaint, claiming that during the 13 years that Brandon represented her, he lacked the required license for talent agents. She consequently issued an order for the return of the $1 million in fees.

A judge ordered Kelly to pay Brandon $195,000 per month in support in April 2021. This was divided into $150,000 in spousal support for two years and $45,000 a month in child support for the foreseeable future until their children reach the age of 18.

A judge ordered Kelly to give Blackstock a 5% stake in her Montana property in January 2022. The ranch is estimated to be worth $17.75 million in total, therefore Blackstock’s 5% ownership was worth $908,000 at the time of the judge’s decision.

Kelly and Brandon finally reached a divorce settlement in March 2022. According to the final arrangement, she will keep custody of their children and the majority of her assets. On the other hand, she will pay him $115,000 in maintenance per month until January 2024, plus $45,000 in child support, presumably until the children reach the age of 18. Kelly also agreed to pay a $1.3 million flat amount.
