Kelly Clarkson has come a long way since her American Idol beginnings. Opportunities and big hits have followed her for years. Now Clarkson has revealed that she is leaving ‘The Voice’ to spend more time with her children.
Following her recent shocking divorce from Brandon Blackstock, Kelly Clarkson has allegedly opted to step down from her job on The Voice in order to spend more time with her two young children. Although the 40-year-old country singer has not publicly announced her departure from the hit singing competition reality show.
An insider familiar with the situation recently told OK! Magazine that Clarkson has “quit” the show. This is also why she did not appear on Blake Shelton’s social media post-Friday announcing Gwen Stefani’s return to The Voice after a two-year hiatus.
“While Kelly hasn’t announced it publicly yet, she’s done with the red chair. She’s quit.”
“She has shifted mindsets. After her divorce from Brandon, Kelly has decided she needs to prioritize her kids. There’s only so much she can do. Something had to give. That something was The Voice.”
Although the Since U Been Gone singer is leaving The Voice, she will not be gone from television forever. Clarkson is anticipated to continue presenting NBC’s upcoming show American Song Contest alongside Snoop Dogg.
Clarkson’s departure from The Voice comes just months after her divorce from Blackstock was finalized in August. The former couple continued a nasty court battle that ended this past March when Clarkson agreed to pay her ex-husband a one-time lump sum payment of $1,326,161 as well as $45,601 per month in child support for the former couple’s two children: River and Remington.
Kelly is attempting to recover from her sudden divorce by spending more time with her children, which is a positive sign. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
