Pop star singer and talk show host Kelly Clarkson will be dishing out quite a bit of money per month for Spousal and Child Support after a ruling on Tuesday.
The order, which breaks down as $150,000 for spousal support and $45,601 for child support, culminating in $2.4 million a year, also indicates Clarkson is required to pay $1.25 million toward her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock’s legal fees.
There was a report in People that Blackstock was actually looking for more than double that amount. Blackstock was looking for $436,000 per month.
The pair have two children together, 7-year-old daughter River Rose and 5-year-old son Remington.
The docs also reveal that Blackstock made a “deliberate choice” to quit his career as a manager to “become a rancher full-time.”
The court docs read, “The Court finds that under the circumstances present in this case, the interest in providing stability and continuity for the minor children weighs in favor of Petitioner having primary custody.”
The 39-year-old Clarkson filed for divorce from the 44-year-old Blackstock in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.
Clarkson was previously awarded primary custody of the couple’s two children.
