Kelly Clarkson looks heartbroken as she sings Etta James’ breakup classic I’d Rather Go Blind amid her divorce – The Sun
KELLY Clarkson belted out an emotional rendition of the Etta James breakup classic, I’d Rather Go Blind, days after divorcing from husband Brandon Blackstock.
The 38-year-old host appeared heartbroken as she covered the iconic song during a segment for The Kelly Clarkson Show on Friday.
The singer said she chose the particular track for Kellyoke because she wanted to feature a prominent Black artist in recognition of Juneteenth.
Brunette beauty Kelly went with a natural makeup look as she showed off her incredibly vocal range.
She looked devastated as she went through the heartbreaking lyrics from the legendary tune.
“I would rather go blind boy, than to see you, walk away from me child,” Kelly sings.
The song continues: “So you see, I love you so much. That I don't want to watch you leave me baby.
“Most of all, I just don't, I just don't want to be free no,” the breakup ballad says.
One fan who recognized her tough times lately and commented: "Oh. Now I understand what you're going through. It sucks."
On June 4, Kelly filed for divorce from her music manager husband after seven years of marriage.
Last week Kelly once again appeared upset as she was seen for the first time since her split was made public.
Sources close to the couple told Entertainment Tonight: "Kelly and Brandon had been having problems for several months and had been making an effort to work things out.
Insiders added: "They both hoped quarantining away from LA in Montana would help them work things out in their marriage, but instead the change in environment was actually detrimental.
"The constant time together seemed to make an already challenging situation worse
"This recent downtime gave her the time she needed to think about her life and her marriage."
The Texas native also seemed to have recently taken her eight-bedroom farmhouse off the market.
It went up for sale in May, but the listing page now says the property has been "withdrawn/canceled."
According to TMZ, the pop star had listed her San Fernando Valley property for $9,995,000
At a sprawling 10,000-square-feet, the mansion sits on a half-acre of land and also features a two-level guest house next to the outdoor BBQ station, pool and jacuzzi.
The Voice coach is reportedly getting "support" from her costars Gwen Stefani and boyfriend Blake Shelton – who is managed by Brandon.
An insider told ET: ”They both know how painful divorce can be and just want the best for their friends.”
Gwen finalized her divorced from Gavin Rossdale in 2016, while Blake finalized his from Miranda Lambert in 2015.
Kelly and Brandon got married in 2013 and share two children — daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4.
According to documents obtained by The Sun, the couple cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
