Blake Shelton 'supportive' of Kelly Clarkson amid her split from Brandon Blackstock: report

Kelly Clarkson is weathering the often treacherous waters of divorce and has been looking to close friends for support amid her public split from husband Brandon Blackstock, according to a new report.

Blake [Shelton] has been supportive and the friend she has needed, as always,” a source close to the “American Idol” alum told Us Weekly on Wednesday.

The friendship triangle still sees Blackstock, 43, as Shelton’s longtime manager, however, despite the divorce, the insider said Shelton, 43, and Clarkson remain unfazed by the marriage dissolution and “often joke they are siblings.”

What’s more, is Clarkson, 38, also has the backing from Blackstock’s stepmother, the venerable Reba McEntire, whom another industry insider said was in full support of the couple’s decision to head their separate ways.

“[Kelly] broke the news to Reba,” the second source said. “Reba’s supportive of both Brandon and Kelly’s decision to split. She’s anguished about it, but she’s not one to judge.”
