Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock have reached a settlement in their divorce battle. According to information obtained by Page Six, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon approved the terms.
Kelly would have obtained primary custody of their two children – 7-year-old daughter River and 5-year-old son Remington. On the other hand, Blackstock, who resides in Montana, will have the kids one weekend a month.
According to Page Six, Kelly will keep the former couple’s Montana ranch, although Blackstock will be allowed to live there until June 1. In the meantime, he has to pay 12,500 USD per month for rent. For the uninformed, the 39-year-old singer had previously agreed to hand over more than five percent of the rural estate to her ex-husband. His share is worth $908,800 of his estimated value of $17,750,000, according to the outlet.
Kelly originally won the hotly contested house last October, but Blackstock argued it was “marital property” and not part of their prenuptial agreement. According to legal information obtained by Page Six, Blackstock will now receive spousal support of $1,15,000 per month, but which expires in January 2024.
News of Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock’s divorce settlement comes nearly a month after the pop star filed to have her surname legally changed to Brianne. A court hearing regarding the motion is scheduled for March 28.
Kelly filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after nearly seven years of marriage. The estranged couple were declared legally single in August 2021. The exes share a 7-year-old daughter, River, and a 5-year-old son, Remington, while Blackstock is also the father of two older children from a previous relationship. (ANI)
