KELLY Clarkson’s friend Blake Shelton is “stuck in the middle” of her divorce as her ex Brandon Blackstock still manages his career.
While the American Idol star has been leaning on her fellow Voice coach for support, The Blast claims Blake “has found himself smack dab in the middle of his two friends’ divorce battle”.
According to Us Weekly, Blake has been a pillar of support for Kelly over recent weeks.
A source revealed: “Blake has been supportive and the friend she has needed, as always.”
While her ex Brandon is Blake’s manager, Kelly is believed to be so close to the country singer that they “often joke they are siblings”.
Blake’s partner and fellow Voice co-worker Gwen Stefani has also reached out to Kelly at this tough time.
An insider told Entertainment Tonight: ”They both know how painful divorce can be and just want the best for their friends.”
Gwen finalized her divorced from Gavin Rossdale in 2016, while Blake finalized his from Miranda Lambert in 2015, so they’ve both been through the experience before.
Kelly and Brandon got married in 2013 and share two children — daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4.
She filed for divorce in Los Angeles on June 4, according to documents obtained by The Sun, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
Earlier this month, a source claimed work had put a strain on the couple’s relationship as they prioritized it over their family.
The source told People: “Things had changed in their marriage and the split was a while coming.
“They both work so hard. It’s nearly impossible to enjoy each other, especially with the children needing constant attention.”
Another source further explained that the couple’s split took most of their friends by surprise.
They said: “It just came out of nowhere. Their marriage was so strong.”
