    Kelly always talked about how happy Brandon made her. "I love being with somebody who's unafraid of making you feel sexy," she told ET in 2017.


    And I know you've seen that performance of her song "Piece by Piece" on American Idol in 2016. Guys, the whole song is about how her husband picked up the broken pieces of her — which were shattered by her estranged father.
