Kelly Clarkson: The end of the marriage is also a burden for your children

In the summer, their marriage ended publicly, now Kelly Clarkson speaks about what a difficult time her children are going through.

Once again, the US singer Kelly Clarkson (38, "Because of You") spoke openly about her marriage. In an interview with "ExtraTv" she revealed how much her children River (born 2014) and Remington (born 2016) also suffer from the separation of their mother and father, Brandon Blackstock (43).

It is very difficult "to be able to be honest and to share your story, maybe to help someone else, and at the same time to protect those little children whom you love dearly and who are most important to you," explains Clarkson. Her kids had received a lot of help to cope with the situation, including therapists and child psychologists. "Everyone is sad and it's okay to be sad too," continues the singer, who filed for divorce.

Live "like a dumpster"

It's not the first time she talks about the end of the marriage. "It's no secret that my life was a bit like a dumpster. It's been a little difficult in the past few months," said the singer in mid-September on the US show "Sunday Today". She wanted to process her divorce with the help of her music, as she explained at the time. Her new album, which she described as "very honest", is set to be "the most personal that I have ever released".

Clarkson and Blackstock got married in the fall of 2013. In addition to having two children together, the talent manager also brought a son and daughter into the marriage.
