Kelly Clarkson calls her life a 'dumpster' as she struggles with messy divorce from Brandon Blackstock
KELLY Clarkson admitted her life is a "dumpster" as she continues to struggle with her messy divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock.
The famous singer sat down with Willie Geist on Sunday TODAY and touched on many personal things, including her current split.
She confessed: "I mean, it's no secret. My life has been a little bit of a dumpster … personally, it's been a little hard the last couple months.
"I've been talking to friends that have been through divorce. I don't know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever for everyone involved."
The American Idol alum filed for divorce from her husband in June, citing “irreconcilable differences."
The hitmaker, 38, also requested joint custody of their two children, River Rose, six, and son, Remington, four.
Brandon also has two children from a previous marriage.
While Kelly wonders how people deal with divorce without an outlet, she already has one as she is currently working on her latest album, which she revealed will be a "personal" one.
She told Willie: "This'll probably be the most personal one I've ever released.
"And the whole record is basically every emotion you experience from the beginning of a relationship to the end of what it is now or where it is now, and it's been very therapeutic for me."
Previously, The Voice judge admitted that she will have to be "open and honest" when it comes to discussing her divorce on her award-winning talk show.
The entertainer explained to LA Times: “I am a very open person, but I’m not going to be able to be truly open about this in certain aspects because there’s kids involved.
“I think that I will navigate a way in which to be open and honest about it eventually, probably via the show, and it’ll probably, I’m assuming, happen organically when someone says something in conversation or something."
She continued: "It definitely wouldn’t be planned. But my children and his older children — there are a lot of little hearts involved in this and while people feel, ‘Oh my gosh, what a loss …’ imagine how it is in the epicenter of the storm.
"It’s a lot to process and deal with, just as a family. So because it’s not just me, I probably won’t go too deep with it.”
Kelly also told the publication that she is seeing a therapist.
She said: "It’s funny, I actually told my therapist recently, ‘I have no idea how one goes through any kind of huge life change, like a divorce, that doesn’t have some kind of an outlet.'
“I am very lucky. Even from my childhood, my mom told me I had a problem expressing my emotions and all these things when I was really young and that I should start writing."
Kelly added: "So that’s me expressing it. I usually leave it in the songs and that’s usually my therapy."
