Kelly Clarkson has said in numerous interviews that she and Voice coach Blake Shelton have been friends for years, but apparently in addition to being a good friend, Blake is also a good matchmaker.
After last week’s announcement of Kelly’s new ABC show, Duets, it seems that she is ready to announce a different kind of duet — her romantic pairing to Blake’s manager Brandon Blackstock.
Not only is Brandon Blake’s manager, but he’s also country singer and former Voice mentor Reba McEntire’s stepson!
"I have a new boyfriend!" Kelly told Us Weekly.
According to the magazine, an insider said, "Before Brandon, Kelly had a really tough time with love."
The couple has been dating since late last year and went to the Super Bowl together.
Kelly originally admitted to being in a relationship on Canadian radio show CHFI 98.1. She first said it was a “new” relationship, but then joked that “new” wasn’t the right word since she hasn’t dated in years.
We’re happy for Kelly, but hopefully this new love won’t keep her from producing great girl-power hits!
