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.
