"Kelly is more than fine," an insider told the outlet in August 2021. "She is doing great and facing forward. She's enjoying the fact that she has the kids for the vast majority of the time and is enjoying time spent with them."

Finally, after nearly two years of battling in divorce court, Clarkson and Blackstock's divorce was granted, and the details of their settlement may surprise you.
