Kelly Clarkson is looking for a big change in her life.

The singer and talk show host has filed paperwork to change her legal name from Kelly Clarkson to Kelly Brianne. Brianne is the star’s middle name.

A Clarkson attorney filed a name change petition on his behalf in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday.

The 39-year-old performer writes in the filing that she wants to change her name because “my new name better reflects who I am.”

A hearing in the case has been set for March 28.

Clarkson’s request comes during a season of change for the entertainer as she is currently divorcing Brandon Blackstock. The singer of “Since You’ve Been Gone” filed for divorce in June 2020, citing “irreconcilable differences” after roughly seven years of marriage to Blackstock. The couple share daughter River Rose, 7, and son Remington Alexander, 5.

Clarkson married Blackstock in 2013. The two met at a rehearsal for the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2006. Clarkson was on hand to sing a duet of “What Hurts the Most” with Rascal Flatts. Blackstock was the band’s tour manager at the time.

The star has been open about her divorce in interviews and on her talk show.

In December, she said she would be “single forever” and revealed she struggled to notice the “red flags” at the start of the encounter to treat.

“I’m always that person who’s like, ‘Oh, I don’t know. Maybe they had a day off,'” Clarkson noted on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.

“We should hang around for it to fade away [on me]”, Clarkson told his guest Andy Cohen after revealing that he tends to “cut and run” when red flags appear on dates.

It’s unclear how the name change would affect its brands, but a source told Entertainment Tonight that its eponymous talk show would remain the same if the new name is approved.
