(NEW YORK) -- Rumors have been flying about Kelly Clarkson’s love life ever since she told a Canadian radio station earlier this month that she had a boyfriend. The rumor was that the lucky guy is Blake Shelton’s manager, Brandon Blackstock, the son of Clarkson’s manager, Narvel Blackstock.
Now, sources tell Us Weekly that it’s true, and Blackstock and Clarkson are, in fact, dating. Narvel Blackstock is married to Reba McEntire, which makes Brandon Reba McEntire’s stepson.
An insider tells the magazine, “Before Brandon, Kelly had a really tough time with love. He’s just what she needed.”
Clarkson’s record label did not respond to ABC News Radio’s request for comment about the relationship.
Sharp-eyed fans may have noticed that Clarkson and Blackstock have been seen exchanging somewhat flirty tweets with one another over the past few months.
