Kelly Clarkson thinks she couldn’t have survived her divorce without antidepressants: “I Need Your Help”

The acclaimed presenter of The Kelly Clarkson Show dubbed it the “most significant choice of my life,” noting that her path would not have been as successful without Lexapro’s invaluable assistance.

In an extraordinary admission, Kelly Clarkson publicly admitted to using antidepressants as a coping tactic during her difficult divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

The dynamic anchor, 41, recalled a touching moment during a therapy session when her tears became uncontrollable.

“I looked at my therapist, tears streaming down my cheeks, and admitted, ‘There were days I had to cancel because the tears wouldn’t stop.’”

Clarkson said on an episode of Las Culturistas, which broadcast on iHeartMedia and Will Ferrell’s Big Money Players Network, “I felt utterly incapacitated.” It was one of those times when I had to repress my pride and let go of my previous problems.”

Clarkson told Rogers, 33, and Yang, 32, that “I was on Lexapro for about two months, if I recall correctly.” “My problem was that I couldn’t put up a front for America any longer.” I was unhappy and in desperate need of help.

In all honesty, choosing Lexapro was the most wise decision I’ve ever made. I would have been thwarted without it.” Blackstock, 46, and Clarkson married in 2013, and their divorce was finalized in March 2022 after the singer filed for divorce in 2020.

River Rose, 9, and Remington “Remy” Alexander, 7, are the couple’s two children. Their romantic journey significantly influenced her most recent musical work, “Chemistry.”

Clarkson revealed in a recent podcast interview that her children listen to her songs mostly for their racy nature.

On Mike Adam’s podcast Audacy Check-In, Clarkson admitted, “I don’t play my stuff when my kids are around.” “So, even when they listen to my other tracks, I assume they’re doing so with someone else because when my daughter asked to listen to ‘Whole Lotta Woman,’ I was baffled about how she even knew the song.”

Her daughter’s true intention, however, was to use specific profanities. “She was desperate to say a ‘Can I sing a song?’ she requested. ‘Only when you’re with me,’ I said.”

“I had to establish that it’s inappropriate anywhere else,” Clarkson continued. So they’re not dancing to my songs; we’ve been listening to a lot of Harry Styles and Aurora,” she explained.

Before the release of “Chemistry,” Clarkson said when she discussed the “brief text exchange” she had with Blackstock about the record. “I can’t even remember the context or reason behind it, but I messaged him saying, ‘Hey, this isn’t about reducing us to one aspect,’” she recalled.

“Do you understand the significance of what I’m saying?” This trip touches on every aspect of our relationship. There is beauty in the pain. Yes, there is a lot of pain right now, but the pain is universal.”

“This album is very personal. I’ve continuously released highly personal songs, and my reputation as that type of songwriter is well-known.

“Parenthood—having and raising children—prompted me to consider, ‘What direction do I wish to take with my art?’” As a result, I selected the compositions that would be included on this CD with great care.”
