The hitmakers' trip to the beach comes after it was revealed she hired Kim Kardashian and Angelina Jolie's senior lawyer for their messy divorce from estranged husband Brandon Blackstock.
The Sun exclusively announced in early October that Kelly would replace her original attorney Terry Ross with Laura Wasser on July 21.
The divorce attorney has been dubbed the "Disso Queen" because her A-list clients include Angelina, Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Garner, Britney Spears, Ryan Reynolds and Gwen Stefani.

She also represented Kim in her divorce from second husband Kris Humphries.
The TV personality filed for divorce in June 2020. She cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
The star sought joint legal and physical custody of their children, but urged the court not to provide Brandon with spouse assistance.

The Kelly Clarkson Show host also called on the court to enforce a prenup signed on October 15, 2013 and restore her maiden name.
In Brandon's response to the divorce, he agreed to Kelly's motion for joint legal and physical custody of their children.
The courts have approved a privately compensated judge, Judge Scott M. Gordon, in Kelly and Brandon's divorce proceedings through December 2021.

The DSDS winner was also sued by her ex-father's company for 1.4 million US dollars.
According to Variety, the company that has led her career for the past 13 years has filed a lawsuit alleging it owes $ 1.4 million in unpaid commissions.
The outlet went on to say that the terms of the deals were negotiated orally by Kelly's attorney and chief executive officer back in 2007 and that they confirmed them over the phone. However, there is no written agreement.

Kelly said on Sunday during an interview with today's Willie Geist, "I mean, it's not a secret. My life has been a bit of a dumpster … personally, it's been a little difficult the last couple of months.
"I've talked to friends who have divorced. I don't know how people go through this without having an electrical outlet because it's the worst ever for everyone involved."
Kelly is currently working on her most "personal" album to date.
