37-year-old country music singer and actress Jana Kramer has filed for divorce from husband Mike Caussin. Kramer announced the news on social media that her six-year marriage to the former football player was over, posting on Instagram: “As I try to make sense of a reality I never wanted to believe could be possible again, those words have now become a reality. I’ve fought y’all. I’ve loved hard. I’ve forgiven. I’ve put the work in. I’ve given everything I have, and now I have nothing else to give. It’s time.” She continued, “Please know that I still believe whole heartedly in marriage, love and rebuilding. I just can’t fight any longer. It’s time to heal. Thank you for all the love, heart and support, in many ways you have fought on this journey alongside me, and for that I am grateful. I’ll always encourage you to continue the good fight, but you can’t fight it alone.”
A source told People magazine that the divorce is due to infidelity, which was an ongoing issue in the marriage. The split comes just seven months after the couple released their book The Good Fight: Wanting to Leave, Choosing to Stay, and the Powerful Practice for Loving Faithfully. In the book, Caussin spoke candidly about sex addiction, infidelity, and seeking treatment following a string of affairs. After numerous cheating scandals, Mike went to rehab to help treat his sex addiction in 2016, and the spouses had been working on their relationship ever since. Jana and Mike share two children together, Jolie Rae, 5, and Jace Joseph, 2.
Kelly Clarkson has been granted primary custody of her two children, 6-year-old River Rose and 4-year-old Remington Alexander, amid her divorce from her husband, Brandon Blackstock.
Clarkson and Blackstock will continue to share physical and legal custody of their kids, but Clarkson now has primary physical custody. Blackstock will video chat with River and Remington “at a mutually agreed upon time” daily, per the judge’s ruling. Clarkson, River and Remington are currently living in the Los Angeles area, where Blackstock will visit the children. Blackstock is currently living in Montana.
Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock, a talent manager, in June; they’d been married since October of 2013. He is the son of Narvel Blackstock, Reba McEntire’s ex-husband, making him her stepson and Clarkson and McEntire in-laws. The couple have kept their divorce proceedings private in an effort to protect their children. In addition to River and Remington, Blackstock has two children, Savannah and Seth, from a previous relationship.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton announced their engagement Tuesday on social media with a photo of them sharing a kiss while Stefani showed off her ring.
Shelton, 44, captioned his Instagram post: “Hey, @gwenstefani thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life. I love you. I heard a YES!” Stefani, 51, replied, “@blakeshelton yes please!”
Stefani and Shelton met in 2015 on the set of NBC’s reality-competition series The Voice, where they served as judges. Both had recently gone through divorces (Stefani split from Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale and Shelton from country singer Miranda Lambert). Stefani shares three sons with Rossdale: Kingston, 14; Zuma, 12; and Apollo, 6. Shelton has no children of his own.
Shelton and Stefani released “Nobody But You” off Shelton’s fifth compilation album Fully Loaded: God’s Country which scored him his 27th no. 1 country hit. They followed that up with “Happy Anywhere” in July, their fourth collaboration.
No wedding date has been announced as of press time.
