Kelly Clarkson opens up about her children getting therapy to deal with divorce

Kelly Clarkson’s children are attending therapy amid her divorce from their father Brandon Blackstock.

The Piece By Piece hitmaker split from Brandon in June this year, and has admitted their two children - River Rose, six, and Remington Alexander, four - are now seeing "child psychologists" to make sure they are able to cope with the change to their family dynamic.

She told Extra: "We have a lot of help as far as therapists or child psychologists because we want to do it right. I definitely want to do it right. Everyone’s sad and it’s okay to be sad.

"It’s just one day when you’re like, 'Wow, this has forever changed and it’s not just my heart has changed, there’s other little hearts, too.'"

Kelly also said that she’s been having trouble dealing with her divorce in the public eye, because she’s trying to “protect these little kids you adore” at the same time.

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old singer recently claimed divorce is a "s*** thing", after seeing multiple family members go through the process before enduring a marriage split herself.

She explained: "I've been through two divorces in my family, husband as well in his own family as a child. We didn't have social media around when that happened.

"And, like, having kids that run the gambit of four to 19 is a really tough thing. And, you know, I've had conversations with one of our eldest about how difficult it is in the public eye when your parents are so ... you know, one of them is so prominent and having to navigate that for them is hard on their hearts.

"I'm just careful also while being real ... And I don't think that anything is - like I said - nothing's wrong with anybody, it's just ... it happens, and that's why there's nothing to hide about it in that sense. You know, it's just, divorce is a really s*** thing."
