Kelly Clarkson has spoken on her first summer break in some time and while speaking on the topic, she mentioned having a “rough couple of years.” Clarkson's divorce from Brandon Blackstock, which was finalized earlier this year, was included in that rough time.
During an appearance on Today on Tuesday (August 23rd), the singer told hosts Hoda Kotb and Carson Daly, “I hadn't had a minute and it's obviously been a rough couple of years. So it was really important to me to, like, shut down for a minute.”
She continued, “The kids were with me and with their dad. It was nice because they usually have to travel a lot because of our separation. So we were both in Montana. It felt kind of the first time—I think my kids felt—a little more centered as well. So it was nice.”
Kelly and Brandon share two children, River, 8, and Remington, 6.
