Kelly Clarkson is one of the most beloved pop stars in the industry, and her relationship with husband and now manager, Brandon Blackstock, wasn’t often in the headlines. The couple have two children together, River Rose and Remington Alexander as well as two children from Brandon’s first marriage. Kelly and Brandon are two celebrities who’ve managed to keep a relatively low profile in the media. They would often share and gush about their life together, which meant their split even more surprising. Take a look back on their love story:
11. They Had Known Each Other for a Long Time
Kelly Clarkson’s manager is Narvel Blackstock, Brandon’s father. Narvel introduced the two at the 2012 Super Bowl where Kelly was set to perform the National Anthem. Not only was Kelly linked to Brandon through his father, but she had performed with his former step-mother, Reba McEntire, on numerous occasions. Music is a big part of their family which is probably why Brandon also became a pilot and tour manager. He used to be Rascal Flatt’s manager and has been Blake Shelton’s manager since 2013.
