Amid her contentious divorce from Brandon Blackstock, Kelly Clarkson is talking about divorce again. On the singer’s daytime talk show, Kelly confessed to actress Gwyneth Paltrow that she couldn’t imagine getting married again.
“You’ve been married for two years,” Kelly said of Gwyneth’s current marriage with writer and producer Brad Falchuk. “Coming from someone who’s literally in the midst of divorce, I can’t even imagine doing it again.”
Kelly told Gwyneth that she found it amazing that the actor “found love and found the space and the vulnerability on that level to say yes and do it again.”
“(It was) probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done … allowing myself to learn the lessons that I needed to learn from my divorce,” Gwyneth said, adding, “You will have it again, Kelly. It just takes time.” Gwyneth married Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in 2003, and the two split in 2014. They have 2 children together.
But Kelly is happy to be where she’s at for now. “I’m actually in that place where I think a lot of people, I’ve heard, that go through divorce (get to),” she replied. “It’s almost like you start dating yourself again, like you actually make time for you again.”
“I love dating me! So I’m actually not looking for it,” Kelly added. “It’s also a beautiful thing for a lot of people like me that are going through divorce that do want that in the future to know that it can and will probably happen for you.”
