Kelly Clarkson Addresses Cheating Rumors, Guilt Trips Everyone Into Shutting Up

I can pinpoint the origin of my obsession with pop culture back to the days of standing in grocery store lines, reading crazy headlines about celebrities and Elvis being reincarnated as an alien.  Luckily, my parents are boring, old, non-famous lame-os so I never had to read about their alleged marital strife while waiting for them to pay for my Honey Nut Cheerios.  As my parents actually did kind of have a tumultuous marriage, I am thankful for this small reprieve.  I couldn't imagine being the child of celebrities and having to deal with that kind of stuff – it's basically the only reason the E! True Hollywood Story exists.

Unfortunately, the young step-children of Kelly Clarkson aren't as lucky.  Which sucks.  Almost as much as being a newlywed of less than two months and a mom-to-be, hearing about your husband possibly “hooking up” with some rando.  Whomp.  The good news is that we don't know if these allegations are true (I'm erring on the side of NOT), but the bad news is that the kids in this situation have been exposed to the hurt these kind of rumors cause:

 

I don't know about you, but that made me feel bad and I've fanned not even one small, tiny flame of this rumor!  I genuinely like Kelly (when she's not denouncing feminism) and as someone who will be a newlywed in six short weeks, I feel terrible that all of this hullabaloo is happening during what should be an incredibly happy time for her.  But then I remember she's super rich and talented and it'll all blow over soon, and then I don't feeeeeel sooooo baaaaddd (Too. Much. Sound of Music.)
