Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Hook-ups, Rumors,

Justin Guarini and Kelly Clarkson back in 2002Kelly Clarkson's fellow American Idol finalist Justin Guarini claims they had a secret relationship.

The "Because of You" hitmaker - who is expecting her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock - won the first series of the show in 2002, and the runner-up claims they began a romance when they starred together in movie From Justin to Kelly, but separated when her career grew more successful while his stalled.

According to a review posted on website Mcall.com, Justin told the audience at his Lovesick one-man cabaret show in Pennsylvania last week about the romance, and also with another Idol contestant from his series, the fourth-placed Tamara Gray. Justin - who has two children with wife Reina - has previously described Kelly as being "like a sister" to him. "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," he previously said in 2012.

And speaking around the release of From Justin to Kelly, the "Stronger" singer was quick to dispel talk of a romance with her co-star. "We're like brother and sister," Kelly insisted at the time.

The American Idol winner - who has been single for six years - says her "fingers are crossed" in the hopes of a long-lasting relationship with boyfriend Brandon Blackstock.

Then, suddenly, there he was at the Super Bowl and he was single. Brandon understands my job, which is a major thing. He works as crazy-hard as me, if not harder and so doesn't get in a mood if I can't always call when I say I will. I've got high hopes. My fingers are crossed!"

The couple began dating in 2011, but Kelly only confirmed her relationship with Brandon - who manages singer Blake Shelton and is country legend Reba McEntire's stepson - in March 2012.
