Kelly Clarkson Files To Change Legal Name To Kelly Brianne

Kelly Clarkson has filed to legally change her name to Kelly Brianne amid her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

According to the court documents, obtained by Us Weekly, Clarkson says that she had “a desire” to go by her first and middle names because “my new name more fully reflects who I am.” A hearing regarding the petition is set for March 28.

In June 2020, Clarkson had filed for divorce from Blackstock after nearly seven years of marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She was declared legally single in September 2021.

She has since been granted primary physical custody of their two children together: River, 7, and Remington, 5.

Most recently, Clarkson also agreed to give Blackstock over 5 percent of their Montana ranch, which equals to nearly a million dollars.
