Kelly Clarkson’s divorce was finalized fairly recently, on August 3, 2021. The singer has been quite busy filming The Voice since then. In “Kelly Clarkson Presents: When Christmas Comes Around,” Clarkson got quite emotional pondering her lonely holiday.

The TV special aired on Wednesday night. The debut performance of her song “Merry Christmas (To The One I Used To Know)” got her all teary eyed. “I’m gonna be real with y’all: When I wrote this next song, I was crying my face off, which happens even at Christmastime, everyone,” Clarkson admitted.

“I had just put my kids to bed, and I was just going through it, having a really hard time,” she continued. “It’s been a really tough year for a lot of us. And I wrote this song for me, but also because there aren’t many holiday songs for people feeling alone or lost or just plain sad”

The song is obviously about lost love. Written by Kelly herself it includes lyrics like, “If everything was like a dream, you’d be by my side / And who I thought you were was true, not made up in my mind”. The “Stronger” singer filed for divorce from Brandon Blackstock in June 2020 after nearly seven years of marriage. The judge declared the former couple legally single this August, but the case is still ongoing.

Blackstock was also Kelly’s Manager. The ex couple share 7-year-old daughter River and 5-year-old son Remington together. Going through a holiday alone after spending a decade together is surely not easy.

Besides the emotional fight. The settlement demands Clarkson to pay Blackstock nearly $200,000 a month in spousal and child support. However. the judge upheld her prenuptial agreement and awarded her the exes’ $10.4 million Montana ranch.
