Kelly Clarkson Suicide Shocker

She just couldn't take the body-shaming

She was the first person to win on the now-iconic singing competition show American Idol, and it took her life on a rollercoaster of emotions. When she was singing her heart out in front of thousands, she was on top of the world. However, coming back down to the real-world pressures put upon her took her to extreme lows. Kelly Clarkson finally revealed that things got so dark for her that she contemplated ending it all at times.

She’s on a brighter path now, but she wants everyone to know her struggle so that they can be stronger.
