According to the Blast, the filing lists Clarkson’s monthly earnings as over $1.5 million, making the $195,000 to Blackstock just a small dent. Blackstock previously worked as Clarkson’s manager since 2007, alongside his father Narvel (the ex-husband of Reba McEntire), and in the wake of their divorce, Clarkson has also accused the team of fraud, arguing they worked as her managers without talent agent licenses and owe her millions. (He denied the claims in a subsequent filing, per Us Weekly.) According to the new divorce filing, Blackstock has “made a very deliberate choice to change his life and become a rancher full-time,” and will be leaving management — aside from the “minimal time” he spends working with his sole client, Blake Shelton. As part of Blackstock’s plans, he will keep the couple’s Montana ranch, which Clarkson previously wanted to sell, and be responsible for around $81,000 per month in payments for the mortgage and upkeep.

According to TMZ, Clarkson asked a judge at the beginning of July to declare her legally single, ahead of ironing out details like spousal support. The outlet said Blackstock has claimed the couple’s prenup is invalid, which is sure to drag out their divorce further. In the meantime, the $200,000 in support is a temporary number, according to the Blast, that could change as the former couple finalize the rest of their divorce in court.

Kelly Clarkson to Pay Brandon Blackstock Nearly $200,000 a Month in Spousal and Child Support

Yahoo! Voices 27 July, 2021 - 09:45pm

A Los Angeles County judge handed down the order Tuesday that Clarkson give Blackstock $150,000 per month in spousal support, as well as $45,601 per month in child support, PEOPLE has learned.

The arrangement means that Blackstock, 43, will receive $195,601 in total from Clarkson each month, or roughly $2.4 million per year. The order also requires the singer to pay $1.25 million towards her estranged husband's attorney fees and costs for their ongoing divorce.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Blackstock had been aiming for more than double the amount in support, requesting that Clarkson pay him $436,000 per month ($301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support).

Clarkson is being represented by celebrity attorney Laura Wasser, who recently launched It's Over Easy. The service helps streamline the divorce process for individuals who might not be able to obtain her services otherwise.

Clarkson filed for divorce in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.

Earlier this month, Clarkson appealed for a judge to officially sign off on her divorce, leaving other arrangements such as spousal and child support for a later date.

In a declaration to the court obtained by PEOPLE, Clarkson reasoned that she and Blackstock "both deserve the opportunity to build a new life."

Back in November, an L.A. County judge granted Clarkson primary physical custody of their children River Rose, 6, and Remington Alexander, 4.

A source close to the family told PEOPLE at the time that Clarkson is "pleased" by the custody ruling and that her priority is to protect her children.

"As Kelly has said, her first priority in all of this is to take care of the kids and all the hearts that are involved in this divorce," a second source said. "It's been a hard time for everyone, but Kelly's pleased with the court's ruling regarding custody."

"Divorce is hard and it gets tense for most couples going through it. But Kelly's primary focus is on doing the best she can to protect the kids," the source added. "In this case, she had to fight for them since Brandon and his attorneys were making unreasonable requests."

Throughout the divorce proceedings, Clarkson has reiterated her intent to focus on her kids. In February, the star admitted that coparenting with her ex has been "tough" for her.

"You speak about co-parenting, and I'm doing that right now too," she said on her talk show in a conversation with Khloé Kardashian. "It's tough. ... I know with me and Brandon, it's just a difficult thing because we're in different places, and it's like, we both agree on the main things, but it's hard thing when you're not together all the time, for me personally."

"As long as you make sure it's about the children and their best interests, then we're both on board," she later added.

The Blast was first to report on Tuesday's order.

Kelly Clarkson is one step closer to solidifying her divorce from ex Brandon Blackstock now that the former couple’s spousal and child support payments have been worked out.
