Divorce, y’all. There are no winners. And a divorce that plays out publicly? Wowza. So if The Voice coach Kelly Clarkson needs some space, we should give it to her. Kelly Clarkson has been ordered to pay nearly $200,000 in support to her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock, US Weekly reports.
A Los Angeles County court ordered that, beginning on April 1st, Clarkson is obligated to pay Blackstock a whopping $150,000 per month in spousal support. The documents also order Clarkson to pay $45,601 a month to Blackstock as child assistance to “benefit” their children, River, 7, and Remington, 5.
For those keeping score, that adds up to $195,601 per month that the American Idol alum must pay Blackstock. For context, the source says Clarkson earns $1.9 million a month. As for Blackstock, The Blast reports the former stepson of country legend Reba McEntire has decided to leave his career in the entertainment business and is deciding to transition into becoming a “full-time rancher.” The Blast goes on to say that court documents state Brandon “made a very deliberate choice to change his life and become a rancher full-time.”
