Heartfelt condolences to Kelly Clarkson who lost her beloved dog, Joplin, yesterday. Reportedly, she let the news slip to fans at a Musicians on Call fundraising concert in Nashville last night.
Throughout the evening, Kelly hinted that something was wrong, but it wasn’t until she introduced her last song, “Stronger,” at which point she thanked the fans for lifting her spirits, that she shared the bad news that Joplin had died earlier that day. “Crap, I didn’t mean to mention it,” Kelly said, as she teared up.
The singer tweeted about her loss earlier today:

Early last month, Kelly tweeted about Joplin, a black poodle mix she adopted in 2011, calling him her “soulmate.”
