Kelly Clarkson has admitted she and fellow American Idol contestant Justin Guarini dated.
On Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Kelly confirmed that the two did indeed have a fling. Just not actually during American Idol.
She told host Andy Cohen, “We did date a little bit. I think any two people who are thrown together that much would (date). Guy, girl, just saying — “Timeless,” put that song on From Justin to Kelly— you can’t fight it!”
To continue down further nostalgia, Kelly even tweeted a still of her dancing alongside Justin on the set of From Justin To Kelly. The “Heartbeat Song” singer captioned the image from the panned film, “#tbt to the best movie ever #fromjustintokelly #moveovermeryl #timeless.”
According to The Daily Mail, the pair shot to stardom in 2002 as the finalists of the first season of American Idol, a title Kelly was ultimately won.
Following the competition, the singers co-starred in the 2003 film From Justin To Kelly, a movie that focused on a romance that unfolds between two young people (portrayed by Kelly and Justin) over spring break.
In 2012, Justin addressed romance rumours when he spoke with Yahoo admitting, “Yeah, there was a rumor, definitely. We’ve just always been such good friends. Um, man, it was weird; she was like my sister on the show, and then you know, we made a movie together…I’d say, we had a good time. Yeah.”
Justin is now married to Reina Capodici, who he tied the knot with in 2009; the couple are parents to a son named William.
Kelly married Brandon Blackstock in 2013 and also became stepmother to his two children; Savannah and Seth from his previous marriage to Melissa Ashworth White.
