Expensive Ex: Kelly Clarkson’s husband seeks nearly half a million in monthly support

Country singer Kelly Clarkson’s divorce is getting outrageously expensive… Her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock is requesting $436,000 a month in spousal and child support.   

The Kelly Clarkson Show host filed divorce from Blackstock in June, citing irreconcilable differences after seven years of marriage. They share two children, daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4.

Blackstock, a talent manager that represents country crooner Blake Shelton and Clarkson herself, is seeking $301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support monthly. If the court agrees, he’ll make $5.2 million a year off of the ruling.  

He is also asking the court to force Clarkson to pay for his legal representation during the proceedings and has already requested an exorbitant $2 million to pay the seven attorneys on his legal team.

Clarkson scored a big victory in court on Monday, when she was granted primary physical custody of the couple’s two children. Blackburn had been seeking an arrangement that would cause the children to be shuttled back and forth between Clarkson’s home in Los Angeles to his residence in Montana.  

The court found that the children had “not resided in Montana” and ordered that Blackburn would be required to travel to Clarkson’s home in L.A. for “visitation and parenting time.” 

Court documents also stated that the divorce is becoming more contentious between the former couple, officially noting that they were having a “difficult time co-parenting due to issues of trust between them.” 

As the “level of conflict” has “increased” between the couple, Clarkson has remained mum on the topic for the sake of her children. She last addressed the divorce briefly on her show in September. 

“Definitely didn’t see anything coming that came, but what I’m dealing with is hard — it involves more than just my heart, it involves a lot of little hearts,” she told viewers. “We know the best thing here is to protect our children and their little hearts.”

“So I’m usually very open and I usually talk about everything but in this case I will talk a little bit here and there about how it affects me personally, but probably won’t go too far into it because I’m a mama bear and my kids come first.”

I hope the court deny”s his outrageous demand for all the money he can get out of Kelly. He seems to have a good job and he lives in Montana which is a state that doesn’t cost that much to live. He sounds like he only married her so he could get her money.

What a LOW CLASS NOTHING.
He represents people who make millions, doing very little, as the singers are the ones executing with their talents. He is only a LEECH , a BOTTOM FEEDER, who has too much ego and not enough balls to make it by himself.
LOW CLASS POS.

How could he need money! My understanding is he is the son of Reba McEntire & has his own great talents, plus makes a lot of money. It was published right after their marriage, they were already having problems with trust. I believe it was determined that he was the one who couldn’t be trusted, but, I’ve wondered why she never wore a wedding band & she never mentioned him in any of her shows. I guess one could say that maybe he was shadowed all the time. Maybe we could suppose that its just too much when both partners are very talented, as it could feel like competition. When will people realize the talents in each other & the non talents as well. Everyone brings something to the table in some form of goodness. What a shame they couldn’t care enough to keep their love together, but, what is love. I’m 75 & still don’t know what is love. All the relationships I’ve been through & it was always something other than love, all the while I was feeling love. I’m a very talented individual & a successful business lady & that what killed the relationships. Sick, sick thinking when partners are just something to take from.
