The actress was spotted in her Los Angeles neighborhood and keen observers noticed that Kelly had done away with her wedding ring.

The source told Entertainment Tonight that while friends of the couple were surprised when news of their divorce filing broke, "those closest to them know it's been hard".

Earlier this week, we reported that singer Kelly Clarkson had shocked her fans by filing for divorce from her husband of almost seven years, Brandon Blackstock. The L.A. residence has since been pulled from the market, and that may be where Clarkson is now holed up as the news of her divorce makes headlines all over the world.

The change of scenery wasn't the only noticeable difference on Monday's show. Clarkson was also seen without a ring on her finger as she talked about how the world has shifted the past few months. "We have always strived to be a show about connection, and we want to walk the walk. And continue that as well".

Following her surprise split from husband Brandon Blackstock, Kelly Clarkson's cover of Aretha Franklin's 1967 hit, "Chain of Fools", has tongues wagging.

Us Weekly confirmed the split on Thursday, June 11. The couple share two children, River Rose, 5, and Remington Alexander, 4.

Clarkson served as a stepmother to Blackstock's two children, daughter Savannah and son Seth. "She has been low-key and mostly stayed at home", an insider told the outlet.

Since the unfortunate news made headlines, the American Idol alum was pictured reportedly for the first time this past Friday (June 12) while walking her dog through her Los Angeles neighborhood. However, the extra time they've been spending together supposedly gave the Voice coach "the time she needed to think about her life and her marriage".

The "Love So Soft" artist and music manager began dating in 2001 and tied the knot in 2013.
