Another Hollywood couple has gone their separate ways.  

According to E! News, Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from her husband, Brandon Blackstock, last week. 

The 38-year-old reportedly cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split. 

Kelly and Brandon started dating in 2012 and became engaged shortly after. 

The couple tied the knot in October 2013 and have two children together - River Rose and Remington Alexander. 

"It came out of nowhere. It's all so sad for the kids. They were always such a loving family. It never seemed like they had any issues," a source told E!

Kelly and her husband were quarantining together before their split. 

She spoke fondly of her husband during a 2017 interview with Redbook.

"When I met Brandon, I wasn’t looking for a friend. I have a lot of great friends! I was looking for a lover. I had never found someone I was truly passionate about, who I wanted to stay in bed with all day. The fact that I did, well…I was going to latch on and take advantage of that,” 'The Voice' coach said. 

Kelly's friends and family are said to be shocked by the couple's split.

The talk show host hasn't shown any signs of her troubles at home. She recently celebrated the launch of her new clothing line.

"I am SO excited about my collection with Wayfair. Like shoes off, jump-on-the-couch excited. I’ve handpicked every piece, and I think you’ll love the style -- French-country with a modern twist - just as much as I do!" she wrote on Instagram a few weeks ago.

She last shared a picture of her husband in March. Brandon had been spending his time during quarantine giving his daughter horse riding lessons at their Montana ranch. 

"Quarantine hair don’t care. Daddy’s giving River riding lessons and she loved it," she wrote on Instagram. 

A clip shared on her talk show's YouTube page in March gave Kelly's fans a peek inside her life at the ranch. 

"Brandon and I love wide-open spaces and coming to the ranch because both of us grew up in the countryside and... we literally work almost seven days a week - if not seven days a week. So, um, when we have time off we really like to check out," she said.
