Singer and songwriter Kelly Clarkson has to pay almost $200,000 per month in spousal and child support to her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. A report by People says that a Los Angeles County judge ordered Kelly Clarkson on July 27 to pay Brandon $150,000 per month in spousal support and $45,601 in child support.
This means Brandon Blackstock will get $195,601 from Kelly Clarkson every month and around $2.4 million in a year. The Voice judge also has to pay $1.25 million for her ex-husband’s attorney fees and costs for their ongoing divorce.
According to a source, Brandon aims to get more than double the amount that he has asked and requested that Clarkson pay him $436,000 per month. Kelly filed for divorce in June 2020 and appealed to a judge this month to officially sign off on the divorce.
An L.A. County judge granted primary physical custody of Clarkson’s children, River Rose and Remington Alexander, to her in November 2020. A source said that she is happy with the custody ruling and her first duty is to protect her children.
