It’s time to explore the lives of the siblings of this celebrity
Kelly Clarkson siblings
Jason Clarkson (brother born to Stephen Clarkson and Jeanne Taylor)
Year of Birth: 1973
Jason Clarkson was born in 1973. He featured as one of the men in Kelly Clarkson’s music video Walk Away which was recorded in 2004 and released on the 17th of January, 2006.
Jason and Kelly did not get to spend most of their childhood together due to the divorce of their parents while Kelly was just 6 years old. This led to Jason moving to California with their dad while Kelly remained with their mum. Jason was part Kelly’s production team for some period of time.
He obviously has a drinking problem since he was arrested in Texas and charged for driving under influence in 2012 and was later sentenced to 12 days in prison and a payment of $500 as fine, another $389 court fee and his driving license was withdrawn for three months; even her sister’s popularity could not help him out in order to persuade the Judges to reduce his fine or sentence.
Alyssa Clarkson (elder sister born to Stephen M. Clarkson and Jeanne Taylor)
Year of Birth: 1976
Alyssa is the only elder sister to Kelly Clarkson and was born in 1976, 3 years after Jason their brother was born. She also, just like her other siblings did not spend much of time together while growing up due to their parents’ divorce. While Kelly lived with their mum and Jason their dad she went to live with their aunt in California.
However, due to the parents’ divorce, it had a huge impact on the lives of the children and they never had a good impression of their dad and that was practically obvious in some of the songs by Kelly Clarkson one of which was her recent song “Piece by Piece” presented at the American Idol which left many with deep emotional feelings and tears.
The 3 siblings reunited at Jason’s wedding a year before Kelly rose to fame and since then they’ve been super close almost like they never parted ways.
Jimmy Taylor is Kelly’s stepfather who had five children, leaving her with 5 former step siblings. Jimmy and Jeanne Taylor got divorced like a year or two after American Idol.
One great news however is the fact that Kelly can as well put the past behind her and piece by piece get the deepest of love in her new family.
