Kelly Clarkson admits to using antidepressants during her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. The Voice judge and talk-show host says she would cry uncontrollably and even had to cancel some days due to her inability to stop crying. “I was on Lexapro for like, I think two months,” she told hosts Matt Rogers and Bowen Yang on the “Las Culturistas” podcast.
Clarkson admitted that she had stayed in the marriage longer than necessary because she didn’t want to feel like a failure. “My thing was, I just can’t smile anymore for America right now. I’m not happy, and I need help … and it was honest to God, the greatest decision ever. I wouldn’t have made it [without it],” said Clarkson.
