Finding love has allegedly been a struggle for Kelly Clarkson even though she and her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock have been divorced for almost two years.

In its Jan. 10 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Clarkson is still dealing with the fall out of her marriage because Blackstock refuses to let her go. However, this is not because Blackstock wants Clarkson back. Instead, he allegedly just wants the singer’s money.

“Kelly had a tough time going through a divorce after being married for seven years and then had to deal with him trying to soak her for cash in the settlement. That’s why she’s been a little gun-shy with men,” the source said.

The source also claimed that Clarkson’s close friends in the industry have been helping her find love. Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire have allegedly been trying to introduce her to eligible bachelors.

However, Clarkson eventually decided to take some time before entertaining anyone.

“Kelly realized she doesn’t need a man to make her happy. She isn’t in any rush to have some guy screw that up,” the source said.

This isn’t the first time that Clarkson is rumored to be interested in dating again.

In October, the same tabloid published a similar story about the American Idol winner.

They said that Clarkson has always been open to the idea of dating a man after her divorce from Blackstock. However, the singer is just being extra careful because she doesn’t want to fall in love with the wrong person.

Clarkson is also reportedly in such a good place in her life that’s why she thought of dating again. In the past, the singer was allegedly too concerned with her weight and the way she looks, but she later decided to just love herself for who she is.

“She wants to find a real person and looks to people like Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood as inspiration. Even Chrissy Metz impresses the hell out of her. Kelly’s done apologizing for not being a size zero – her size 12 is fine by her,” the source said.

However, there is no truth to what the tabloid has been saying about Clarkson.

If the singer is back in the dating scene, it’s only a matter of time before her new partner will be named. Unfortunately, this hasn’t happened for Clarkson.
