Hooray! Kelly Clarkson And Brandon Blackstock Finally Reach Divorce Settlement
It has been a long and nasty road, but Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock are now officially divorced.
According to TMZ, the divorce battle is finally over and Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon has signed off on the terms. Clarkson has been granted primary custody of their two children. Blackstock, who lives in Montana, will get the kids one weekend a month. Ouch.
Clarkson will be keeping the ranch in Montana they bought together, but Blackstock is allowed to live there until June 1. He must pay over $12,000 a month in rent though.
Don’t feel too bad for Blackstock though, because he can more than afford $12,000 in rent, considering he’s getting $115,000 a month in spousal support. He’ll be getting that monthly rate until January 2024, so the dude better be smart with investments.
What I find most interesting is that Blackstock will only be getting the kids one weekend a month. Does he not want to move to L.A. so he could potentially see them more? Perhaps that’s part of the plan, but who knows.
Clarkson initially filed for divorce in June of 2020. They were married for nearly seven years. And back in December 2021, Clarkson joked she would be “single forever” after enduring the intense divorce battle in court.
But it looks like she’s already changing her tune. A source who talked to Us Weekly claims Clarkson has already dipped her toes back in the dating waters…
Kelly has entered the dating world. She’s being set up with friends and is open to dating again. It’s hard for Kelly to find time for romance with her schedule, but her friends are still into setting her up.
Here’s to hoping she picks a better mate this time. We wish her all the luck in the world.
It ain’t eazy finding your squeezy. (this is a new phrase i’m trying to get going, so you know, feel free to use)
