AceShowbiz - Kelly Clarkson is ruling out any possibility of reconciliation with her estranged husband. The former "American Idol" winner, who is currently in a divorce battle with Brandon Blackstock, was unveiled to have made a request to be awarded a single status by a judge.
The legal documents were filed by the 39-year-old's lawyer Laura Wasser on Friday, July 2. According to TMZ, the "Since U Been Gone" songstress asked a judge to grant her a dissolution of her marriage, leaving aspects of her divorce settlement for a later date.
The outlet further reported that Kelly's now-estranged husband has challenged their prenuptial agreement and claimed that it is "invalid." The judge has yet to make a decision on the matter.
The "Because Of You" hitmaker filed for divorce from her husband in June 2020, after nearly seven years of marriage. She has since been granted primary custody of their two kids, 7-year-old River and 5-year-old Remington.
Brandon, on the other hand, has been awarded temporary spousal support. Although it is considered likely to become permanent, it would only last until 2023, half of the length of their marriage.
In March this year, "The Kelly Clarkson Show" host told Gwyneth Paltrow that she "can't even imagine" getting married again after her split from Brandon. "You've been married for two years. I mean, coming from someone who's literally amidst a divorce, I can't even imagine doing it again," she said on her show.
After the ex-wife of Chris Martin said that "it just takes time," Kelly replied, "I'm actually in that place where I think a lot of people, I've heard, that go through divorce, it's almost like you start dating yourself again, like you actually make time for you again, and I love dating me." She further emphasized, "I'm actually not looking for it."
