Ooohhhwwweee!! According to @people, Kelly Clarkson has been ordered to pay her soon-to-be ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, almost $200,000 a month in spousal and child support.
“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.”
In total, Blackstock will receive $195,601 every month and around $2.4 million per year. Clarkson is also ordered to pay $1.25 million towards his legal fees.
It’s also reported that initially Brandon wanted over $400,000. “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),” PEOPLE reports.
As you know, Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce in June of 2020 after seven years of marriage. She was granted primary physical custody of their two kids, River Rose, 6, and Remington Alexander, 4.
Also, according to PEOPLE, a source stated that Kelly was pleased with the custody agreement.
“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.”
Roomies, what do you think of this?
