Kelly Clarkson shows off her curves as she hits the beach with friends after her ‘difficult’ divorce

KELLY Clarkson hit the California coast with some friends, enjoying the lazy last days of summer.

On Sunday, wearing a short black romper covering up a deep cut swimsuit, the singer took a break from the heat to splash in the waves and cool off.

Talking with friends, the group stood in the shallows as they caught up.

They also spent time on the balcony of a beach-adjacent home.

It came a day after the pals were spotted taking selfies on a train track, as the women enjoyed a weekend away together.

Wearing protective masks, the friends kept it casual in dresses and leggings, with Kelly pairing her outfit with ballet flats and an animal-print wine cardigan.

The outing comes after the 38-year-old singer turned talk show host filed for divorce in June from her husband-of-seven-years Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly has two children with Brandon, son Remington, 4, and daughter River, 6.

The Grammy winner is also is stepmom to Seth, 13, and Savannah, 18, from Brandon's previous marriage.

According to documents obtained by The Sun, Kelly filed papers in Los Angeles on June 4 and cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.

The Since U Been Gone singer requested joint legal and physical custody, though asked the court to not award Brandon any spousal support in the paperwork.

In the months since she filed for divorce, Kelly has broken down in tears multiple times during interviews on her talk show. 

She also cried during numerous emotional ballads she belted out in her popular Kellyoke segment - including Etta James' I'd Rather Go Blind and Aretha Franklin’s classic Don’t Play That Song (You Lied).

During a recent interview with Usher she admitted it had been "difficult" to have the divorce talk during the coronavirus pandemic.

As the 41-year-old Yeah singer talked about his latest song, Bad Habits - which discusses behaviors that lead to breakups - he admitted he had to be “really creative” doing projects in the midst of coronavirus. 

“In this time, you don’t have as many options so you have to find ways to really be creative in telling stories. 

“So being able to have that very difficult topic and conversation [about divorce], which I’m sure a lot of people all over the world are now having. 

“And to deal with their significant other and have to deal with this difficult conversations at home.”

Kelly nodded in agreement and emphasized the amount of sudden time she spent with her spouse during lockdown.
