Kelly Clarkson has scored another significant victory in her ongoing divorce case with her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock. Not only was Brandon Clarkson’s husband and father to their two children, but he also served as her manager. Shockingly, it has come to light that he took millions of dollars from her during his tenure as her manager.

Recent documents obtained by TMZ reveal that a judge has ruled that Brandon owes Kelly over $2.6 million in unlawfully collected booking commissions. Despite being her manager, only agents are legally entitled to earn commissions from their clients, not managers. The documents further disclose that Brandon pocketed more than $1.98 million in commissions just from Kelly’s role as a coach on The Voice.

Brandon is now appealing the judge’s decision, but neither his team nor Kelly’s team has made a statement regarding this specific legal matter. Nevertheless, Kelly can celebrate this win in court as she continues to navigate through her divorce.

Divorce Settlement Finalized, Custody and Support Agreed Upon

Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock have officially completed their divorce proceedings. The final settlement includes various terms that both parties agreed upon. Kelly will make a one-time payment of over $1.3 million to her ex-husband, in addition to monthly child support payments of $45,601 for their two children, River Rose (7) and Remington Alexander (5). As per court documents, the child support payments commenced in February.

Both Kelly and Brandon have agreed to joint custody of their children, with the majority of their time spent with Kelly at her Los Angeles home. Due to the expected travel between Kelly’s home and Brandon’s Montana ranch, both children will be vaccinated against COVID-19, reflecting the current reality.

Kelly will retain ownership of both properties in Montana. Brandon will pay $2,000 per month to live in one of the properties until June, after which the agreement expires. On top of this, Kelly will be responsible for paying spousal support to Brandon in the amount of $115,000 per month until January 31, 2024.

Division of Assets and Personal Possessions

Regarding the division of assets, Kelly will receive various vehicles, including a Ford Bronco, a Ford F-250, and a Porsche Cayenne. She will also be awarded the family pets and an interesting addition – a flight simulator. On the other hand, Brandon will take ownership of farm cattle, livestock, stock dogs, horses, and several vehicles, including a Ford F-350, a Ford F-250, and ATV, and several CAT snowmobiles. Furthermore, he will keep luxury Patek Philippe watches and a golf simulator.

Kelly filed for divorce from Brandon in June 2020 after being married for seven years. In July 2021, she requested to be declared legally divorced, stating that both she and Brandon deserved the opportunity to start fresh. She was officially declared legally single in August of that year.

It has undoubtedly been a long and arduous journey for Kelly during her divorce proceedings. However, she has remained open and transparent with her fans, sharing her experiences and showing what it means to move forward with grace. Divorce is a difficult process, but with her strength and candor, Kelly has become an inspiration to many.
