In 2005, Kelly Clarkson released the song Because Of You. The lyrics talked about the pain her father caused her and the scars she brought to adulthood.

Kelly's parents divorced when she was six. Her dad did not only leave Kelly's mom but Kelly and her older brother Jason.

Clarkson's mom remarried, but the girl still wanted her dad, which is only natural. She looked for him and faced another rejection. She expressed her pain through music, which eventually led her to fame and fortune.

That's when her father tried to contact her, but Kelly knew better. She did not hide what her father did to her and their family and said she could never do that to her children.

Sadly, the scars Kelly carried due to her father's neglect are not uncommon. Not only did his absence scatter her as a child, but her fear of falling in love followed the musician.

In 2018, Stephen Clarkson passed away. Kelly was crucified for refusing to be by his side before his death. But it was her father who broke the ties long before, and it took the public time to realize that the singer was right not to go through the pain of losing him all over again.

The mom of two was called out by her half-brother, Erik, but he was not in her shoes. Besides, it was not Kelly's wish not to have a dad in her life.

Every girl believes that her dad is a superhero. But for Clarkson and many others, a dad turned out to be a villain.
