KELLY Clarkson has been pictured wearing a diamond band on her ring finger, a month after filing for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock.
The singer was pictured wearing the ring as she headed into a friend’s house in Los Angeles on Sunday, although it is not clear if it is the same band as her engagement ring.
The mom-of-two’s ring looked similar in size and color to the estimated $150,000 ring Brandon gifted Kelly with when they became engaged in 2012; Brandon dropped to one knee with a yellow five-carat canary diamond in a radiant cut and classic Halo setting.
Kelly was later seen with the ring switched to her middle finger as she headed out with the friend.
Kelly and Brandon – who is also her manager – share daughter River, six, and four-year-old son Remington, and filed for divorce on June 4, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
In addition to sharing two kids with Brandon, Kelly is the stepmom to Seth, 13, and Savannah, 18, from the talent manager’s previous marriage.
The pair reportedly “clashed on so many levels” after moving to Hollywood from Tennessee, with the 38-year-old singer’s decision to start a talk show on top of coaching The Voice putting a strain on their seven-year marriage, sources claimed.
Delving into the reason for their split, a source told Us Weekly: “They clashed on so many levels, and being in quarantine together heightened their problems to the point of no return so she filed for divorce.
“Everyone thought Kelly and Brandon had the perfect marriage, but they definitely didn’t. Brandon’s very laid-back, whereas Kelly’s pretty high-strung.”
Kelly has turned to music to cope with the divorce and has performed a number of emotional covers on her talk show The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Kelly recently shared that her mental health has been an up and down battle as she also suffers from “depression” in lockdown.
She explained: “I have suffered from depression and it’s one of those things where I don’t do well.
“And I’m an extrovert, so this not seeing humans and not interacting, I really feed off of people’s energy and I love the people that I’ve chosen to surround myself with in my life.”
