Kelly Clarkson net worth: Kelly Clarkson is an American singer, song writer and reality TV star who has a net worth of $28 million. Kelly Clarkson may be a singing idol but with a net worth of $28 million, Kelly Clarkson should also be a financial idol! Born in Fort Worth, TX in 1982, Kelly is the original American Idol, having won the first ever season of the reality television juggernaut in 2002. After participating in musicals in high schools and working with classical voice trainers, Clarkson turned down college scholarships in favor of pursuing a music career. On September 4, 2002, Clarkson beat out Justin Guarini and was crowned the first ever American Idol. Guarini and Clarkson also infamously starred in the universally panned American Idol movie "From Justin to Kelly". In their defense, doing the movie was a contractual obligation.

Kelly Clarkson' post idol career has been an uphill climb with continued success with album sales and critical acclaim. Clarkson has had eleven singles on the Top Twenty hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Her single, "My Life Would Suck Without You", broke the Billboard record for the largest leap to the #1 position in chart history (#97 to #1), in its first week of release. According to Nielsen SoundScan, Clarkson is ranked number 187 on the top 200 album sellers. As of December 2013, she has released six studio albums.

Clarkson is currently the only American Idol contestant to have reached number one in the UK. She has sold over 12.4 million albums in the United States, and over 20 million albums worldwide. She is the second highest-selling American Idol alum overall, behind Carrie Underwood. Clarkson has won multiple Grammys for her albums and has headlined solo tours around the world. In October 2013, Kelly married Brandon Blackstock after a nine month engagement. Brandon is the son of Narvel Blackstock who is married to Reba McEntire. In November 2013, Kelly and Brandon announced that they were expecting their first child together. Their child, a daughter, was born on June 12, 2014
