Divorce: American Star, Clarkson To Pay Estranged Husband Over $45,000 Monthly Support

This would start on February 1, as contained in court documents obtained by The Blast.

Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock have finally settled their bitter divorce case, with a clause that the American Idol star, Clarkson, will pay her ex a massive one-time payment of just over $1.3 million (N540 million) as well as a monthly child support payment of $45,601 (N18 million) for their two children, River Rose and Remington Alexander.
This would start on February 1, as contained in court documents obtained by The Blast.


The couple has agreed on having joint custody of their kids. While the children live at Clarkson's Los Angeles residence, they will be travelling out of state to see their father at the former couple's Montana ranch, where he'll be living for the time being.
Although Clarkson will get both of their Montana properties, Blackstock, 45, will pay the "Since U Been Gone" singer $2,000 (N832, 000) a month while he stays there until June.
Meanwhile, the court ruled that the American Idol winner will also have to pay her ex $115,000 (N47 million) in spousal support per month until January 31, 2024.
The singer will get the family pets, multiple cars including a Ford Bronco, a Ford F-250, and a Porsche Cayenne, as well as a flight simulator.
In turn, Blackstock will get the former couple's "farm cattle, livestock, stock dogs, and horses," multiple vehicles including a Ford F-350, a Ford F-250, an ATV, and several CAT snowmobiles. He will also walk away with a golf simulator and a couple of Patek Philippe watches.
The singer had filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.
In July last year, Clarkson requested to be declared legally divorced, stating that she and Blackstock "both deserve the opportunity to build a new life."
Clarkson was declared legally single in August.
The same month — after an L.A. County judge ordered her to pay Blackstock nearly $200,000 a month in spousal and child support — a source told the magazine she's "more than fine."
"She is doing great and facing forward. She's enjoying the fact that she has the kids for the vast majority of the time and is enjoying time spent with them,” the source was quoted as saying.
