Kelly Clarkson’s new album, “Chemistry,” sold only 53,657 copies, causing her devastation after her divorce.

“Kelly is dismayed by the pathetic numbers, especially after she did a ton of press to promote it,” an insider explained to Radar Online. “Having a hit talk show is wonderful, but Kelly considers herself first and foremost a singer. If she had to pick between a TV career and singing, singing would win every time.” Fans had begged Clarkson to put out a cover album with songs she had sung on her daytime talk show, but she ignored the pleas. A source says, “She should’ve listened.”

Clarkson told her ex about the album during a text exchange. She warned him that it wasn’t just about their divorce.
