Going through a divorce is never easy, especially if there are children involved. When you're a celebrity in the public eye, the pressure to do the right thing for your children is intense, which is why Kelly Clarkson has revealed she hasn't been afraid to get outside help where it's needed throughout her divorce.

Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from her husband Brandon Blackstock in June.
