Starting over after breaking up with a seven-year marriage is hard and Kelly Clarkson is no exception to that. The American singer and songwriter were reportedly getting over her divorce from Brandon Blackstock after being married to him for seven years. She filed documents in the court requesting a legal name change. She wants to go by Kelly Brianne where Kelly is her first name and Brianne is her last name. Apparently, she dropped her last name Blackstock and replaced it with Brianne.
Fans often get confused over her legal name very often and here we’ll decode the confusion. She’s recognized widely with the name Kelly Clarkson which had the last name from her father Stephen Michael Clarkson. Ever since she married Brandon Blackstock, she changed her last name to Blackstock and had ‘Kelly Blackstock’ as her legal name. Though she changed her legal name, she kept using the last name Clarkson as the name was quite familiar among her friends and fans. Now she dropped Blackstock and didn’t replace it with Clarkson. Rumors take turns that this could be due to the tumultuous relationship she had with her father.
But all along, her show ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ did not go through any changes.
