It's not known why the superstar and Brandon are breaking up. The two put their Encino, Calif. home on the market for nearly US$10 million in May, but it's since been removed. They bought the house in 2018.
The first ever American Idol winner and Brandon met in 2006 and married in 2013. They have since had two children together: a five-year-old daughter named River and a four-year-old daughter named Remington. Brandon also has two children from his marriage to Melissa Ashworth. He and Kelly have been spending the coronavirus pandemic isolating at their Montana ranch with their children.
We last saw Kelly and Brandon in public at the Critics' Choice Awards in January. She had been nominated for Best Talk Show for her The Kelly Clarkson Show, but lost to Late Night With Seth Meyers.
