Star Magazine, in its upcoming July 4, 2022 issue, reported that Kelly Clarkson is doing major renovations in her Montana ranch, instead of selling it following her chaotic divorce from Brandon Blackstock. The “Since U Been Gone” hitmaker allegedly plans to remodel the property as a getaway for herself and her kids, River Rose and Remy.
An unnamed source told the entertainment publication:
“Kelly hasn’t set foot on the ranch in two years. She felt like Brandon was a squatter there to get back at her, but in the end, she won the day.”
As per the magazine, Kelly Clarkson initially planned to sell the spread because it held bad memories. The unidentified insider stated:
“It was where Kelly’s marriage fell apart during [the] lockdown.”

“Everybody knows the huge divorce I went through and it’s been, like two years and not easy with kids. I’m just navigating what I’m comfortable with releasing. So, it’s just a hard thing to navigate. It’s coming. I just got to get my crap together. I just got to figure out what I’m going to release. I’ve never had this difficult of a project.”
Kelly Clarkson has not released an album since 2017, except for her 2021 Christmas album titled When Christmas Comes Around. In September 2020, the “Breakaway” hitmaker also opened up about her split from Brandon Blackstock during an appearance on Today.
Speaking with hosts Hoda Kotb, Kelly Clarkson said:
“You can ask anyone who’s gone through a divorce, I don’t think anyone expects it. You see yourself growing old with someone and then life has a different path. It’s so hard on everyone.”
The Voice coach continued:
“We have four kids total with each other. That’s a lot of hearts involved, and you just have to be really careful. … We’re in the public eye so that’s hard too, to try and be truthful but also keep your privacy.”
In March, Kelly Clarkson legally changed her name to Kelly Brianne with the finalization of her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. She told PEOPLE:
“I just got divorced, so I had to drop my married last name. I just kept my middle name for my personal life. I’m still Kelly Clarkson. I don’t think I can change Clarkson at this point. I’m 20 years in!”
