Kelly Clarkson took to Twitter this week to address rumors that her husband, Brandon Blackstock, is cheating on her.
The mom-to-be says the rumors are just that, and wants the people who are spreading them to take her stepchildren into consideration before they pursue it on the web.
“Keep hearing random rumors of me & Brandon splitting or that’s he’s cheating on me. Stop with all the lying please #aintnobodygottimeforthat. False rumors don’t bother me & Brandon but they do affect the lives of our 12 & 7 yr old.They’re kids &don’t get that people can print lies,” she wrote.
Even Blackstock’s ex-wife, Melissa Ashworth, says the stories are “ridiculous” and supports her ex’s new relationship.
“This is ridiculous … this silliness,” Ashworth told RadarOnline. “I have my two children [by Brandon] right here, who I love. I adore Kelly and Brandon as a couple, so if I say anything it’s going to be positive.”
Clarkson has had to postpone a big chunk of the promotional tour for her Christmas album, “Wrapped In Red”, due to extreme morning sickness, but has appeared on several talk shows recently. She performed on “Ellen” and talked baby names on “Today”, saying she thinks she knows the sex of the baby already.
“She’s killing me,’ said Clarkson. “Of course it’s a girl, causing the trouble.”
She also talked about her relationship, saying that because of the nature of her job it’s hard to find time for the little things that make a marriage great.
“Our job is so not normal, we’re on the go all time, it’s hard to date,” she said. “What’s great about Brandon is he’s a manager so he totally gets what I do. He can do his job out on the road with me.”
