Kelly Clarkson leaves Los Angeles for ‘fresh start’ after ‘struggling’ with divorce

Former "The Voice" judge Kelly Clarkson candidly spoke out about her decision to flee Los Angeles for New York. Clarkson admitted part of the reason was her divorce.

"Breakaway" singer Kelly Clarkson is leaving the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles for the Big Apple.

"I’ll be real honest: I thought I was making a horrible decision," Clarkson, 41, admitted to USA Today. "I knew I needed a fresh start and couldn’t be in LA."

"The Kelly Clarkson Show" host confessed what state she was considering moving to before she packed her bags for New York.

"I really wanted to be in Montana, but you can’t really do a show from there quite yet. So I was like, ‘The only other option would probably be New York.'"

The Grammy-winning singer relocated her daytime show for its fifth season to the East Coast, as her studio is located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

"At this point, I’m 40 years old. Mama rented something nice!" Clarkson remarked. "I was like, ‘I’m not living here unless it’s right by the park and really nice for the kids.’"

The mom-of-two’s move comes after her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

"I've learned a lot about what I'm capable of handling, and also what you should not handle. That was me saying 'bye' to 'The Voice' and having this big move. I love that family, but I was like, 'I'm struggling. I can't smile anymore. I don't feel like smiling.’"
