Kelly Clarkson shuns Valentine's Day and instead reads fans' 'dating horror stories' after split from Brandon Blackstock
KELLY Clarkson decided not to celebrate Valentine's Day after her bitter split from husband, Brandon Blackstock.
Instead, the singer chose to read out horror Valentine's Day stories from viewers on a special segment of The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Kelly -who filed for divorce from Brandon last June – explained: "I thought we would celebrate Valentine's Day or Singles Awareness Day with y'all sending in horrible stories from dates or Valentines."
The mom-of-two took out her first submission and burst out laughing, saying: "I just love how this one starts."
The Breakaway singer put the stress on "ex" as she read out: "My ex-husband forgot Valentine's Day one year. He tried to scramble to get flowers delivered but he couldn't get it done that day.
"He called my boss and had me put in a conference room at lunch. He showed up with a whole lobster that he had steamed at the grocery store."
Kelly continued: "He set it down in front of me and said, 'Happy V'alentine's Day,' and then went back to work.
"He left me sitting alone in a glass conference room with a steamed lobster and to make it worse… no butter."
Another viewer revealed their boyfriend of three years got them a "bag of string cheese" for the romantic day and told them "it's for you to eat in the apartment alone".
A third fan recalled how an ex got her a bowling ball, with no finger holes drilled in, attached to a balloon – despite the couple never going bowling together.
Kelly cackled her way through the stories, before dishing out some advice to partners on how to handle the big day.
"If you're going to go for it, actually do it," she advised.
"Or just don't at all and say, 'maybe this isn't my thing and let's do something else to make this our thing'. Own it… or just find someone else."
Kelly filed for divorce from music manager Brandon after seven years of marriage last June, citing "irreconcilable differences.”
The two were embroiled in a nasty battle over custody of their two children, as well as spousal support.
The Because Of You singer has described how "horrible" her divorce has been in interviews and on her show.
She recently won primary custody of their two kids.
Both the singer and her ex have been ordered to not talk “in a derogatory manner” about each other or the divorce proceedings in front of their kids.
To add to the drama, Brandon's father, Narvel Blackstock, and his company, Starstruck Management, claimed Kelly owe them $1.4 million from her earnings on The Voice.
The vocalist refuted the allegation, countering that Brandon and his father were a “fraudulent and subterfuge device” used to perform “illegal services” as managers and accused them of “defrauding her out of millions."
Brandon denied Kelly's claims in court documents filed in November, alleging that he doesn't owe her anything.
