Kelly Clarkson, 41, finally reveals how she lost a drastic amount of weight as she shares


Kelly Clarkson has finally come clean about what she did to lose a drastic amount of weight this summer amid speculation from fans that she was on Ozempic. 

The 41-year-old pop star said in her People magazine cover story this week that she made two big changes in her life.

One was to walk everywhere in her new home of New York City which has helped her get the exercise she needed.

Before Manhattan, she resided in Los Angeles where she drove her a car everywhere, which limited her daily steps.

And the second thing The Voice star did was to listen to her doctor, which meant she cut the carbs down and went on a protein heavy diet.

She told the publication she loves to stroll her neighborhood and the steps are great for her waistline.

And she takes her kids River Rose, nine, and son Remington Alexander, seven – dad is her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock – with her.

‘We go walk the dogs a few times at the park. We’ll go for ice cream because my daughter will wear me down. We’ll go make slime and we go to the museum,’ she said.

‘Walking in the city is quite the workout. And I’m really into infrared saunas right now. And I just got a cold plunge because everybody wore me down,’ Kelly added.

And what she puts on her plate is different.

‘I eat a healthy mix. I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor — a couple years I didn’t,’ explained the talk show host.

‘And 90 percent of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway. I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!’

She looked much thinner at the start of the fall when she went back to her talk show’ the set was now in NYC and not LA. At the time she said the weight change was due to ‘healthier choices.’

Some have accused her of taking Ozempic, but she has yet to admit to that.

Rather, she insists it is just a better environment that has made her shed the pounds.

And she also told People NYC is just right for her.

‘I was very unhappy in L.A. and had been for several years. I needed a fresh start,’ she shared.

And she told her talk show producers she was packing her bags. 

‘We told NBC, “I’m not trying to sound ungrateful, I just can’t stay here anymore for my mental health; for me and my kids.”

‘They weren’t doing well either. 

‘For the past few years, I’d just been showing up and smiling and doing what I’m supposed to do, but you can only compartmentalize so long until you break.’

Also in her new People cover story, Kelly admitted that she has been suffering from crippling depression that was so bad she has had to go to therapy.

Turns out she was in a dark place after divorcing Blackstock, and it has lingered for years. 

Coming out with the new music made her feel like she was ‘taking my power back,’ Clarkson added.

‘That sounds very therapy, but that’s because I love therapy, and I think it’s important to have those tools to navigate your life and relationships.’

It was hard for her to deal with the emotions, she explained.

‘The level of depression and things that come with divorce or grieving is extraordinarily hard,’ she told the outlet.

‘You feel alone, and it’s just a blessing to be able to have that outlet for those emotions that are overwhelming.’

Working on her song Chemistry helped her heal.

‘I didn’t see it other than: This is my outlet. I’m a let-go person; I don’t hold grudges. So it was really delving into what happened in my life and why—and what am I going to do about it?’ she admitted.

‘I cannot express how appreciative I feel for having that kind of healthy outlet.’

She also talked her kids.

She was thrilled when her kids joined her onstage at her Las Vegas residency in August.

‘They were a little nervous, but it was their idea, not mine,’ Clarkson said.

River did a duet of her mom’s single Heartbeat Song.

Remington danced to Whole Lotta Woman.

She was thrilled then seemed into her being a star on stage: ‘I was like, “I feel like how you’re looking at me is how you watch Spider-Man,”‘ Clarkson shared.

‘It caught me completely off guard, and it was the most magical moment because they were so happy and at ease. They were just in awe.’

Her career is doing better than ever. 

Her latest album Chemistry is nominated for best pop vocal album at the Grammys. And her talk show landed six wins at the Daytime Emmy Awards — including outstanding daytime talk series and host for Clarkson. 

Then there is the Vegas residency, which added more shows through the winter.

This week’s People will hit newsstands on Friday. 

This comes just as Clarkson has accused her ex Blackstock of telling her she was not sexy enough for The Voice. 

Kelly made the claims to a California labour commissioner last year, who eventually ruled that Brandon, 47, owed Kelly $2.6 million for unlawfully making deals that should have been handled by her talent agents. 

And, in documents obtained by the New York Post’s Page Six, Kelly claimed that even though she told Brandon about her wish to be a coach on The Voice’ he insisted that they were ‘looking for a more sex symbol type’ such as Rihanna.

When asked by her lawyer Ed McPherson how she was able to recall the specific conversation, Kelly said, ‘Well, a wife doesn’t forget a time she gets told she’s not a sex symbol, so that stays.’ 

She also alleged that Brandon told her NBC ‘had to have someone that was Black. … They had to have a diverse thing’ and that she and Blake Shelton — who was already on the show — ‘were too similar’. 

Despite Brandon’s assertions, Kelly joined The Voice as a coach in 2018. 

He testified in court that he was encouraged by two CAA music agents to tell NBC that Kelly was already in talks with ABC to become a judge on ‘American Idol’, where she first found fame.

 He alleged that they encouraged him to meet with NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Telegdy, claiming Telegdy did not like agents. 

Brandon’s lawyers Bryan Freedman and Jesse Kaplan said in a court document: ‘Critically and consistent with their negotiation strategy, Blackstock informed Telegdy that American Idol would be submitting an offer to Clarkson.

‘In response, Telegdy asked Blackstock, ‘What would it take [to sign Kelly to The Voice]?’ Brandon – who also managed Blake Shelton – told Telegdy that it would be ‘somewhere around Blake’s money’.
