Kelly Clarkson responds to fan’s jab at Brandon Blackstock’s divorce

Kelly Clarkson is responding to a social media user speculating about why the star’s marriage to husband Brandon Blackstock came to an end.

On Thursday, the Twitter user began commenting on how Clarkson, 38, fills in for Simon Cowell on “America’s Got Talent,” while the 60-year-old is recovering from a back injury.

“Now Kelly is taking Simon’s place,” the person said before adding, “no wonder her marriage did not work out … surprise that she has time for her children … not the good old country girl we fell in love with … it’s all about Kelly on TV… and no one else… no tears for her… but for her children. ”

Clarkson replied several hours later.

‘Wow. Shame on a woman who has a great work ethic, is a great mom, and who comes up and completes as a friend [sic] asking for an advantage, because that’s actually what “good old country girls” do, “she wrote” This may not be who you are deep. I have more confidence in your heart. ”

In June, singer and talk show host “Since You’ve Been Gone” filed for divorce from Blackstock, 43, according to court documents first obtained by The Blast.

Clarkson cited “inconsistent differences” as the reason for the divorce. Meanwhile, Blackstock, like Clarkson, is also reportedly seeking joint physical and legal care for her children.

The divorce has yet to be finalized.

The couple has been together for nearly seven years and share two young children: a daughter, River, 6, and a son, Remington, 4. Blackstock also has two children from a previous relationship.
