Kelly Clarkson’s estranged husband, Brandon Blackstock is requesting $436,000 in monthly spousal and child support.
A source told Page Six that Blackstock has “been equally unreasonable in his requests for child and spousal support, as well as attorney fees.
“Kelly Clarkson has offered to pay for all the kids’ expenses, but Brandon seems to think he is entitled to and needs $301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support per month.
“Additionally, he’s already asked for $2 million for attorney fees when he’s the one driving up the cost of the divorce with seven attorneys just representing him alone.” The source added.
If Blackstock is granted his request, he would pocket more than $5.2 million per year to care for himself, their daughter River Rose, 6, and their son Remington Alexander, 4.
However, on the bright side, Kelly Clarkson was also awarded primary physical custody of her two children kids according to court documents that were shared on Monday.
A Los Angeles judge stated that the kids should be with one parent when in Los Angeles as co-parenting has been a struggle due to ‘trust’
Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from Brandon earlier in June after seven years of marriage.
She recently spoke out about the split on an episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” telling viewers, “My mom has been telling me since I was a kid: You are who you surround yourself with.
“You want to make sure you’re surrounded by people that also want to be the best versions of themselves and also want a good common goal for everyone, not just themselves, right?
“People, like, could be bad for you in a certain time. And I think that everybody just goes, ‘Oh, well that means they’re bad.’ Well, it doesn’t necessarily mean that, it just means that you’re on different paths. And I think that that’s OK… Everybody’s on a different learning curve.”
