Kelly Clarkson recently came into a significant issue in her protracted divorce from Brandon Blackstock. The singer of “Because of You” has been embroiled in a contentious divorce fight with her ex Blackstock since June 2020. After six years of marriage, Clarkson filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable disagreements” (per Us Weekly). The couple welcomed son Remington Alexander and daughter River Rose throughout those six years. Additionally, Blackstock’s two children from a previous marriage had Clarkson as their stepmother.
On the breakup, Clarkson stated to Hoda Kotb (as reported by Us Weekly), “You imagine yourself aging with someone before life takes a different turn. Everyone is having such a difficult time, and you know how open I am. I try to be forthcoming and open.” Even though she usually keeps everything to herself, she is aware that others have interests in the matter as well. “We all experience things, she added, but we also have a total of four children together. There are many hearts at stake, therefore you must use extreme caution.”
She was awarded exclusive custody of the two kids she shares with Blackstock in November 2020. Even with the significant victory, the divorcing couple still faces many legal challenges. Kelly Clarkson is currently facing a significant legal defeat.
Kelly Clarkson just lost an eviction battle against ex Brandon Blackstock
In June 2020, he and Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from Brandon Blackstock, which led to a contentious divorce process. Over their children, money, child support, and now the couple’s Montana home, the two have engaged in legal combat. Clarkson lost in court after first attempting to remove Blackstock from their home in Montana.
According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, Kelly just suffered a significant legal setback in her attempt to have Brandon removed from the Montana property that the judge gave [solely] to her. He has been residing there and claimed that, due to the unresolved financial component of their divorce, he does not now have the resources to pay to buy a home of his own.
Despite his “unresolved financial issue,” Blackstock did manage to score a significant victory in court during the summer. When Clarkson was ordered to pay Blackstock almost $200,000 per month in child support — or around $2.4 million per year — in July, their divorce proceeding changed. Additionally, it was reported that Clarkson must fork up $1.25 million for Blackstock’s legal expenses and divorce settlement.
