Because of You singer Kelly Clarkson has taken to her Twitter page to clear up rumours that she is pregnant.

The 31-year-old American Idol winner posted: "FYI ....Brandon & I are getting married & no I am not pregnant. We are eloping for one reason only. We both want an intimate ceremony."

Clarkson recently told People that she cannot wait until October to marry her beau and has decided to elope, saying: "We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, 'So, we change our minds and we want to elope. We just got so overwhelmed by it—the decisions."

She added, "Our whole life is a celebration. That's what we kept laughing about. We don't need another day where we throw a big party. Our lives are so in the spotlight all the time. Everything is such a spectacle, we were like, 'We should rather have an intimate moment that's special."

Kelly's forthcoming Christmas album Wrapped in Red is released at the end of October.
