Without anti-depressants, Kelly Clarkson claims she couldn’t have survived her divorce: “I Need Your Help”

The talk show host said that choosing Lexapro was the “greatest decision ever” and that without it, she “wouldn’t have made it.”

Kelly Clarkson finally came up about taking antidepressants to help her get through her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.


During a therapy session, the 41-year-old presenter of The Kelly Clarkson Show recalled finding it difficult to suppress her tears.

I had to cancel some of the other days because I was crying so much, I said to my therapist as I stared at her.


“I cannot do this,” said Clarkson in the iHeartMedia and Will Ferrell’s Big Money Players Network episode of Las Culturistas that aired on Wednesday. And it was one of those times when I had to really swallow my pride and put my early struggles behind me.

Clarkson said, “I was on Lexapro for two months, I think,” to Rogers, 33, and Yang, 32. “My problem was that I was no longer able to grin for America. I’m not happy, and I need help. And that was the best decision ever made, God willing. I could never have achieved without it.

In 2013, 46-year-old Blackstock and Clarkson tied the knot. The “Breakaway” singer filed for divorce in 2020, and it was formally finalized in March 2022. The couple’s children are River Rose, 9, and Remington “Remy” Alexander, 7. Their romance serves as the main inspiration for her most recent album, Chemistry.


Clarkson asserted in a recent podcast interview that her children mostly listen to her music, which permits them to use foul language.

“I don’t listen to my stuff around my kids,” Mike Adam, the podcast host of Audacy Check-In, remarked in reference to Clarkson. “So even with my other music, I guess they were listening to it with someone else because I couldn’t figure out how my daughter knew “Whole Lotta Woman” when she asked to hear it.”

Still, she really wanted to say “a-.” “May I sing ‘a-?,” she inquired. I answered, “Just with me.” “I was like, ‘You can’t do this anywhere else,” Clarkson went on. We listen to a lot of Harry Styles and Aurora, so they don’t jam to me,” she went on.

Prior to Chemistry’s release, Clarkson talked about the “small text conversation” she had with Blackstock about the record when she appeared on TODAY.

She added, “I was like, ‘Hey, I didn’t just diminish us down to one thing,'” but she couldn’t even remember how or why it had happened. Can you make out what I’m saying? Everything is included in the ride. There’s also beauty in the place. It’s a painful time, but everyone experiences pain at some point.

It’s really personal. And I’ve always put out personal music; I think that’s what everyone knows about me as a writer in general. It seems to me that having kids, and the fact that you both have kids, makes you kind of wonder, “What am I going to do here?” I was therefore quite particular about the songs I selected for the album.
