• Kelly Clarkson is trying to change her name
  • She wants to drop Clarkson for her middle name
  • Her new name would be Kelly Brianne

We might have to get used to a whole new Kelly Clarkson. The singer and TV host is trying to legally change her name, which would come after nearly 20 years in the spotlight.

This would be Kelly Clarkson's new name

Kelly, 39, filed legal documents this week stating she wants to change her name to "Kelly Brianne," according to Us Weekly. She said that the name "more fully reflects who I am."

She was born Kelly Brianne Clarkson but apparently had a complicated relationship with her father. It now looks like the star could change over to just Kelly Brianne. Good for her, if she does!

Also interesting:

Per Us Weekly, a hearing on the name change is set for March 28. Kelly is also coming off a divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock last year. So she's making some major changes for herself.

Expect to hear from Kelly if her name change becomes official.
