Single mothers Kelly Clarkson and Khloe Kardashian spoke on the challenges of co-parenting with their baby daddies on the former’s eponymous show ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’.
Clarkson opened up on the challenges of co-parenting with her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock while speaking to Khloe who appeared on the show virtually through video link.
Clarkson has two children with Blackstock; 6-year-old daughter River Rose and son Remington Alexander, 4. while Khloe Kardashian has a 2-year-old daughter, True, with Tristan Thompson.
The 38-year-old TV personality-cum-country singer said co-parenting with Blackstock was difficult because of their distance apart.
“You speak about co-parenting, and I’m doing that right now too. It’s tough. … I know with me and Brandon, it’s just a difficult thing because we’re in different places, and it’s like, we both agree on the main things, but it’s a hard thing when you’re not together all the time, for me personally,” Clarkson told Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe Kardashian also spoke on her own motherhood challenges during the video call with Clarkson on her eponymous TV show.
Clarkson further said that her estranged husband are focusing on their kids during their divorce. She filed for divorce in Los Angeles on June 4, 2020, citing irreconcilable differences.
The divorce came 7 years after Clarkson and Blackstock walked down the aisle in a colorful wedding ceremony held in October 2013.
The couple tried to work out the details of their divorce as amicably as possible in private, citing the best interests of their two children.
Clarkson and Blackstock’s ‘peaceful’ divorce turned more complicated in September of 2020, when Starstruck Management Group sued Clarkson, alleging they were owed unpaid commissions totaling more than a million dollars.
The company is owned by Blacktock’s father Narvel Blackstock. Blacktock himself works as a talent agent at his father’s management company.
Clarkson filed a countersuit in December alleging that Blackstock, who served as her manager throughout their marriage, had defrauded her by overcharging her over the years.
The mother of two further alleged that Starstruck was not even licensed to practice in California, a violation of the California Labor Code. Blackstock denied her claims in legal documents he filed in January of 2021.
A judge awarded Clarkson primary custody of the couple’s children in November of 2020. Clarkson has recently listed her former California home for sale after moving to a new house amid her divorce.
