Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock have finally agreed to settle their divorce case, and Kelly is walking away with a significant share of the assets.
With L.A Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon signing off the terms of the agreement. It has been agreed that Kelly will have the custody of their 2 kids. While Brandon, who currently resides in Montana, will have the kids for a month as of now, TMZ reported.
It was earlier reported that Kelly will also keep the Montana Ranch. However, Brandon is allowed to live there until June 1, but he must pay her the rent – $12,500 per month.
In case Brandon moves to a different state, the custody arrangements will be reopened.
Brandon tried to challenge their prenup, but after the trial, the judge upheld its validity – that marked a big win for Kelly. It is told she earns $20 million a year, and she will be keeping it all. While Brandon will get the spousal share of $115,000 a month, however, that ends in January 2024.
Brandon will also get $45,600 a month in child support. Despite the fact he will get to keep the kids one weekend a month, the above amount reflects the overhead he has to pay to ensure their well-being. Kelly’s lawyer has the option to ask for a re-evaluation of the agreement in case the overhead expenses change.
Kelly is also paying him $1.3 million as part of the settlement.
The judge restored the couple’s single status back in September. Also removing Blackstone from Kelly’s name, she now goes by Kelly Brianne. Brianne is her middle name, while professionally, she’ll still be called Kelly Clarkson, legally she has decided to drop Clarkson. It seems she made the change due to her unpleasant relationship with her father.
