Just Last year she posted a touching picture of her cuddling her dog Joplin referring to him as her ‘soulmate’. Sadly Kelly Clarkson is now in mourning after the death of her beloved miniature labradoodle on Thursday. The 39-year-old singer broke the sad news on Thursday evening as she struggled through tears to perform at the Hard Rock Cafe for the Musicians On Call benefit concert.
Visibly teary eyed throughout the show Kelly touchingly dedicated her final song of the night, ‘Stronger’ to her beloved pup whom she adopted from a rescue shelter in 2011.
And today the grieving singer shared the sad news with her fans on her Twitter page posting a picture of Joplin who was clearly far more than just a pet and more of a family member. Just last year the country star announced that the curly haired rescue pup was battling with some health issues.
At the time the Texas native had urged her fans to pray for the cute mutt’s recovery, writing on her Facebook page “I had the worst day yesterday because my little baby Joplin, one my dogs, almost died and I was a wreck. He is now at a vet hospital and doing better. Please say a prayer for him.”
But sadly on Thursday, much to his famous owner’s distress the black haired miniature labradoodle lost his battle with cancer.
The upsetting news will prove as somewhat as a low for Clarkson who has recently had much to celebrate. The Grammy winner tied the knot with music manager Brandon Blackstock in October in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee.
The blonde beauty has been outspoken about her desire to have a baby with her new husband telling chat show host Jay Leno that she and her husband were ‘trying like rabbits’.
Kelly is already stepmother to Brandon’s two children from his previous marriage but has said she would like to expand the family by having two children of her own.
