Kelly Clarkson Opens Up About 'Challenging, Overwhelming Year' Amid Divorce

2020 has probably not been anybody's best year of their life. Sure, some of us have had good things happen during this year, but overall, it's been a rough one.

That likely goes double for Kelly Clarkson, who is in the middle of a divorce from her husband of seven years. Kelly has reflected on this year in a tweet that pulls no punches.

Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock had been together since 2012 and married since 2013.

Kelly and Brandon have two children together, River, 6, and Remington, 4. Brandon also has two children from a previous marriage that Kelly is a step-mother to, Savannah and Seth.

ET confirmed that Kelly had filed for divorce on June 4th.

The outlet also confirmed that Kelly had cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for filing.

While neither Kelly nor Brandon have explicitly spoken about their divorce, Kelly has opened up about the struggles she has been facing during this difficult time in her life.

"Everything has been crazy," Kelly told Glamour in an interview shortly after news of her divorce went public.

Kelly added that life had been "an emotional rollercoaster" but also that "There are always things that happen that come up that bum you out, but at the same time you've got to recognize at some point though, that it's made you who you are. You are thankful and I'm a very strong individual."

In a new tweet, Kelly has expanded on how difficult this year has been for her.

"Shout out 2 every single guest I’ve had while taping my show this summer. This year has been challenging, overwhelming &sometimes it feels like hope is lost," Kelly revealed in a frank tweet on July 21st.

"BUT I have had the honor of meeting some incredible humans doing amazing things &keeping hope alive &I want 2 say THANK U," she finished.

We love that no matter what is happening in Kelly's life or in the world around her, she manages to keep a positive and authentic attitude! We could all stand to look at the bright side and be a little bit more grateful for the good in our lives, just like Kelly!
