KELLY Clarkson and her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock "clashed on so many levels" after moving to Hollywood from Tennessee.
The 38-year-old singer's decision to start a talk show on top of coaching The Voice put a strain on their seven-year marriage, sources claimed.
An insider told Us Weekly, "When she went to Hollywood, it changed things," adding that Brandon "prefers their quiet life in Nashville".
Kelly – who shares daughter River, six, and son Remington, four, with Brandon – filed for divorce on June 4, citing "irreconcilable differences".
Delving into the reason for their split, a source said: “They clashed on so many levels, and being in quarantine together heightened their problems to the point of no return so she filed for divorce.
“Everyone thought Kelly and Brandon had the perfect marriage, but they definitely didn’t. Brandon’s very laid-back, whereas Kelly’s pretty high-strung.”
The source claimed Kelly's career moves in recent years put pressure on their marriage.
The Since U Been Gone singer joined The Voice as a coach in 2017 and started her own talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, in September last year.
Kelly's been open about how she's doing since filing for divorce, recently admitted to having "abandonment issues" after their split.
Meanwhile, sources close to Kelly and talent manager Brandon, 43, previously told Entertainment Tonight that quarantine made things worse in the couple.
The insider – who said that those closest to them knew things were bad – claimed: "Kelly and Brandon had been having problems for several months and were making a conscious effort to work things out.
"They both hoped quarantining away from LA in Montana would help them work things out in their marriage, but instead the change in environment was actually detrimental."
Just last month, Kelly put her $10 million LA mansion on the market while she and her family were quarantining in Montana.
However, she took it back off the market weeks later.
Early in the coronavirus pandemic, Kelly and Brandon were isolating at the Montana mansion they picked up a year and a half ago named Vintage Valley.
