The Emmy’s were held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic and winners were announced online which prompted Kelly to be absolutely shocked and grateful. She began tweeting about all of the people she wanted to thank along with the dedicated fans that always tune into her show. “Thank you so much to @BBlackstock for believing in me & convincing me to do @KellyClarksonTV show and @lifeofT for being the greatest friend/assistant #BestEmilyICouldHaveAskedFor #DaytimeEmmys2020” she tweeted. This was the tweet that had many people praising The Voice coach for being so down to Earth.
Kelly filed for divorce on June 4 from Brandon after seven years of marriage. The now Emmy-winning talk show host submitted the divorce documents to a Los Angeles court. The pair had a gorgeous wedding in 2013 and share two children together River Rose, 5, and Remington Alexander, 4. But after seeing her tweet, it seems like Kelly and Brandon are keeping mutual respect for one another as they co-parent their children.
