Why Kelly Clarkson Left The Voice: Her Exit Explained

Gossip & Rumors

Why did Kelly Clarkson leave The Voice?

It’s a question that fans have been asking since Kelly walked away from the hit NBC talent competition show in 2023.

Stars are often reluctant to speak openly about why they chose to walk away from a particular project.

But in an interview with USA Today, Clarkson shocked fans with her candor.

She began by describing her choice to walk away from The Voice as a “horrible decision.”

But while she may have some regrets about the way things ended, Kelly still believes that she chose the best path for herself and her two children.

Kelly’s final seasons on The Voice coincided with her messy divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

Not surprisingly, she says her top priority at that time was creating the most stable environment for her kids.

“Full disclosure, I put on a smile a lot of those times because I was struggling a lot in my personal life,” Clarkson said.

“I’ve learned a lot about what I’m capable of handling and also what you should not handle. That was me saying ‘bye’ to The Voice and having this big move.”

And so, Kelly quit The Voice and moved her daytime talk show to New York City.

“I knew I needed a fresh start and couldn’t be in L.A. I really wanted to be in Montana, but you can’t really do a show from there quite yet,” she explained.

“So I was like, ‘The only other option would probably be New York.’”

Kelly Takes Manhattan

Asked about her new life in New York, Kelly revealed that she and her kids are thoroughly enjoying themselves in their vibrant new surroundings.

“At this point, I’m 40 years old. Mama rented something nice!” Kelly said with a laugh.

“I was like, ‘I’m not living here unless it’s right by the park and really nice for the kids,’” she continued, adding:

“I genuinely love it, and I love that my kids love it.”

Between the end of her marriage and the conclusion of her time on The Voice, Kelly went through an awful lot in the span of a few years.

But it sounds like she’s living her best life these days.

Kelly lost 40 pounds in the past year, and she enjoys talking about her fitness journey and encouraging fans who wish to live a healthier lifestyle,

And despite rumors to the contrary, it seems that she did it all without any help from Ozempic!
