As The Voice’s twenty third season prepares to wrap up its audition spherical, the coaches appear to be settling in properly with one another. Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson have reignited their pleasant rivalry; Niall Horan has discovered a brand new father determine in Shelton; and Probability the Rapper is blowing all people away together with his imaginative and prescient as a producer. However rumors have begun to flow into that issues aren’t as hunky dory as they seem, significantly in the case of Clarkson and this season’s Mega Mentor, Reba McEntire.
In honor of Blake Shelton’s closing season, The Voice is giving him a full-circle second by bringing again nation music legend Reba McEntire, who served as his Battle Advisor in Season 1. The “Fancy” singer additionally simply occurs to be Kelly Clarkson’s ex-mother-in-law, and Radar On-line reviews that tensions have arisen over the speak present host’s divorce from Brandon Blackstock, which was finalized in March 2022. The location alleges:
These rumors, if true, are stunning, given the truth that Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock break up up practically three years in the past, and Reba McEntire — who was married to Brandon’s father Narvel Blackstock for 26 years earlier than divorcing in 2015 — publicly refused to take sides within the breakup. The insider, nevertheless, claims that “for some purpose” McEntire can’t settle for that it’s over.
Kelly Clarkson has opened up lately about how her and Brandon Blackstock’s two kids have dealt with the divorce, and allegedly, Remington and River Rose are on the middle of the Queen of Nation Music’s considerations. The supply continued:
Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce in June 2020, and the proceedings took practically two years to settle, attributable to battles over cash owed, custody agreements and possession of the singer’s ranch in Montana. It doesn’t appear doubtless that Reba McEntire would nonetheless be harboring hope for the connection a full yr after the divorce was lastly settled. It additionally appears questionable that the present would convey McEntire on within the first place, if Clarkson wasn’t OK with it.
Moreover, if the job of the Mega Mentor is dealt with in the identical approach as seasons previous, Reba McEntire might be out and in of the present fairly shortly. When Snoop Dogg, Taylor Swift and others appeared on The Voice in earlier years, they had been solely featured in a single spherical, so even when there was pressure between the 2 powerhouse singers, it’s doubtless filming has occurred and the state of affairs is already behind them.
We don’t know what goes on behind closed doorways, although, and even when Reba McEntire has remained impartial in regards to the divorce publicly, she wouldn’t be the primary mother-in-law to have an opinion, particularly if there are grandchildren concerned.
The Voice followers should preserve an eye fixed out for any attainable awkwardness between the 2 when the icon makes her Season 23 debut.
