Kelly Clarkson jokes about therapy and 'wanting to feel happy' after divorce from Brandon Blackstock

KELLY Clarkson joked about therapy and "wanting to feel happy" after her divorce from ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

The American Idol alum recently won primary custody over their two children.

During the Tuesday episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the singer spoke with Fran Drescher – best known as The Nanny.

The actress then proceeded to show Kelly a tour of her home as she explained: “When I bought this house, I was getting a divorce from my first husband and I was still on the show The Nanny and my life was very complicated and intense and busy.

“I needed something that was extremely calming and very pristine to make me feel very peaceful.”

However, Kelly could relate as she joked: “It’s like you were in my last therapy session.

“I got a new house, it’s very white and clean [for] the same reasoning. And I also redid my office here [at the show]. I looked at Kevin in our art department and I was like, ‘Please help me make this make sense.'”

The 38-year-old made various changes to her home to help her "feel cleansed" as she deals with the fallout of her nasty divorce.

She added: “I just wanted to feel happy. The colors make me feel very good.”

Kelly and Brandon, 43, parted ways after the entertainer filed for a divorce in June due to "irreconcilable differences."

Last month, Kelly also won primary custody of their two kids – River Rose, six, and son Remington Alexander, four.

According to the court document, Kelly and Brandon will share joint physical and legal custody, but The Voice judge will live with her little ones in Los Angeles.

A few days later, Kelly told show guest, Untamed author Glennon Doyle, “You write about the public fallout from your divorce. I’m obviously going through one right now, it’s horrible!”

She continued: “The hardest for me is the kids, that’s the hardest for me. I always, as women especially, I think we’re trained, Alicia [Keys] and I were talking earlier, to take it all on.

"And you can deal with it and you’re fine, but it’s your babies that you worry about.”

The Sun exclusively revealed that the exes have been ordered to not speak “in a derogatory manner” about each other in front of their children.

Brandon also has two kids, Savannah, 18, and Seth, 13, from a previous relationship.

While Kelly has put one court issue behind her, she is also in the middle of another as Brandon's father's company sued her for $1.4m.

They claimed she had not yet paid the full commission this year for her work on The Voice and The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Kelly has denied owing any money.
