Singer-songwriter and talk show maestro Kelly Clarkson wants to change her name to Kelly Brianne, her first and middle names. She filed documents to request a legal change, according to multiple reports.
This comes amid other big changes. Clarkson was married for seven years to Brandon Blackstock, from whom she has had a contentious split. Clarkson has had a rocky relationship with her dad Stephen Michael Clarkson, although it’s unclear if that’s the reason behind her drop of the name.
TBD how it will be handled in her career—her show, after all, is called The Kelly Clarkson Show.
