Kelly Clarkson's dog has died.

The 31-year-old star is mourning the loss of her miniature labradoodle, Joplin, who passed away after being diagnosed with cancer.

According to Kelly shared the sad news with fans while performing at the Hard Rock Cafe for the Musicians On Call: Nashville benefit on Thursday evening (14.11.13) when she dedicated 'Stronger' to the pooch.

Joplin was a cute black dog that Kelly adopted in 2011 however in August 2012 he had a health scare and the blonde beauty took to Facebook to share the news with her fans and urged them to pray for him while he recovered.

She previously wrote: ''I had the worst day yesterday because my little baby Joplin, one my dogs, almost died and I was a wreck. He is now at a vet hospital and doing better. Please say a prayer for him.''

Weeks after Kelly's post the singer's fan, Liam KC, took the twitter and claimed Joplin was diagnosed with cancer.

She wrote: ''Met @kelly_clarkson #adelaide She told me Joplin has terminal cancer when I asked her :'(''
