Kelly Clarkson has revealed that her three-year-old daughter River was recently bullied.
The American singer, who’s also mum to one-year-old Remington, opened up about the experience in an interview, saying she wouldn’t have handled it well if she had been there when it happened.
Speaking to Redbook magazine, Kelly said: ‘Just recently our nanny told me that an older kid was mean to my daughter at the park and that she just crumbled.
‘I’m glad I wasn’t there, because I wouldn’t have handled that well. I totally went off on that 6-year-old in my head!’
The mum also opened up about how becoming a parent has changed her as a person and turned her into a ‘mama bear’.
‘Literally, having children has brought fear to my life. That sounds horrible, I know, but before kids I was fearless’, she told the publication.
‘Now I go to bed and I have nightmares of someone just grabbing my little girl and running. It’s always about me not being able to protect my kids somehow. I’m a mama bear’, she added.

The American Idol winner, who’s also a step mum to her husband’s two children, has previously said that their family is complete and they’re not planning to have more babies.
‘Oh God, those tubes are gone! That’s blasphemy. We don’t even speak of it. We’re both fixed in our own ways, yet we’ll still probably get pregnant again somehow’, she said in a radio interview on KTU’s Cubby and Carolina in the Morning.
‘I always feel bad because I have friends who have a hard time getting pregnant and I’m just like guys, I have the worst pregnancies ever, It can’t happen again!’, the mum-of-two added.
Responding to a cute video of the toddler trying Nutella for the first time, fans of the singer accused her of ‘child abuse’ for giving the chocolate spread to the child.
