Kelly Clarkson admits she's written 60 songs since divorce and calls songwriting a 'blessing' to 'let it all out'

KELLY Clarkson has revealed she’s written 60 songs since splitting from husband Brandon Blackstock and called the process a “blessing” to “let it all out.”

The mom-of-two, 38, filed for divorcefrom her music manager spouse  last June after seven years of marriage citing  "irreconcilable differences.”

Since the announcement the Kelly and Brandon, 44, have been embroiled in a nasty battle over custody of their two children, daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4, as well as spousal support.

The Because of You singer is channelling all her emotions into song-writing and has since racked up approximately 60 tunes. 

Speaking to ET, The Voice judge said: “I have written like 60 songs, it is an insane amount of getting it out. I think that's a blessing in itself.”

Alluding to the divorce, she went on: “Anytime you go through some life, it's such an awesome thing to have that outlet, regardless of whether people hear it or not.”

Kelly, who also has her own talk show, added: “Whatever happens though, it is such a gift. Like, I don't know how anybody, I'll just be real with you, goes through grief like divorce, any kind of grief, any kind of loss, without having an outlet like this.”

Chatting ahead of the new series, which premieres on Monday March 1, she also revealed that fellow judge John Legend’s music had helped her. 

“I literally was going through the worst moments of my emotional life,” she said. “And his record, it's not like a Joni Mitchell [album], or Jagged Little Pill, it's the complete opposite of that. It's all about that kind of love that you find, that kind of connection you find, and it was so helpful for me.”

Kelly continued: “It's a really important thing that we remember we are a really important vessel for a lot of messages that people need to hear. 

“Because me hearing that during this time was like, 'OK, it's not hopeless. It's not over.' It was a very therapeutic record for me, which is so interesting, because I was feeling none of those emotions while listening to it. But the hope that's there is such a beautiful thing.”

In January it was revealed that The Voice coach is not backing down after Brandon shut down any accusation that he allegedly owes her millions.

One day after the music manager denied he owed his wife any money, Kelly, 38, is continuing to back what is said in the lawsuit. 

The singer’s attorney, Ed McPherson, said in a statement to ET: “We stand by our allegations that Starstruck violated the Talent Agencies Act, despite their boilerplate denials.

“And we look forward to trying the case before the Labor Commissioner in August.”

Brandon, 44, reportedly filed documents with the California Labor Commission in November of 2020, denying Kelly's claims that he charged her outrageous fees under their contract as performer and manager.
