Kelly Clarkson has been ordered to pay her ex Brandon Blackstock nearly $200,000 per month in spousal and support payment . A l. a. judge ruled Tuesday that the “Voice” star is required to pay $150,000 to Blackstock monthly in spousal support. Additional monthly payments of $45,601 per month are going to be made to Blackstock for support payment, consistent with People. The “Kelly Clarkson Show” host’s monthly payments to her estranged husband total $195,601, which comes bent $2.34 million over a year.
Clarkson also has got to pay Blackstock $1.25 million to hide his attorney’s fees in their divorce case, the report states. The entertainer filed for divorce on June 4, 2020, after nearly seven years of marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences.” They share two young children – River Rose, 7, and Remington Alexander, 5.
Clarkson married Blackstock in 2013 after meeting him at a rehearsal for the Academy of country and western Awards in 2006. The star was available to sing a duet of “What Hurts the Most” with Rascal Flatts. Blackstock was the group’s tour manager at the time.
The 39-year-old “Since you have been Gone” singer is represented by attorney Laura Wasser. Earlier this month, Wasser filed legal documents asking a judge to officially approve her divorce. Clarkson revealed earlier this year that she’s written: “like 60 songs” in light of her personal strife. “I think that’s a blessing in itself,” Clarkson said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, noting that “it’s such an awesome thing to possess that outlet, no matter whether people hear it or not.”
