Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock’s marriage problems were “exacerbated” in quarantine, sources say.
The 38-year-old singer filed for divorce from music manager Brandon, 43, earlier this month after seven years of marriage and the Covid-19 lockdown reportedly deepened the cracks in the relationship. A source close to the couple told People: “It was a stressful time. Quarantining exacerbated any issues.”
Another insider revealed that work had put a lot of strain on their relationship and the pair – who have children River Rose, 6, and Remington Alexander, 4, together – had “been like friends for a while.” The source explained: “Things had changed in their marriage and the split was a while coming. They both work so hard. It’s nearly impossible to enjoy each other, especially with the children needing constant attention.
