Kelly Clarkson’s divorce from Brandon Blackstock is giving her plenty of content for her forthcoming album.
After two years together, Clarkson and Blackstock married in 2013.
“I’m overjoyed. She told Us Weekly before their wedding, “He’s killing my creativity.” “I’m writing cheerful s—-. I’m dying.”
Daughter River and son Remington were born in 2014 and 2016 respectively. The talent manager and ex-wife Melissa Ashworth have two children.
Clarkson told Us in 2020, “Parenting transforms you in the best ways.” “It’s tough, but it’s made me stronger. It’s the toughest job. Selflessness results. It forces prioritization.”
Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020, alleging “irreconcilable disagreements.” The family lived in Montana during the coronavirus outbreak.
“No surprise. “My life has been trash,” she said to Willie Geist in 2020. “The previous few months have been tough for me.” I’ve talked to divorcees. I don’t know how people go through it without an outlet because it’s the worst.”
Clarkson said she was “navigating” a public breakup that month.
She told Hoda Kotb on Today that no one expects a divorce. “You imagine yourself becoming old with someone, but life changes. Everyone is affected, and I’m extremely honest. I attempt to share… Everyone struggles.
We have four kids together. So many hearts! Be careful! In the public glare, it’s hard, to be honest, and private.

Agreement on A Divorce with Brandon Blackstock
The divorce between Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock is finalized.
According to their divorce agreement, which CNN was able to obtain, Clarkson will provide Blackstock a $45,601 monthly child support payment. The couple will split custody of their two children.
A one-time payment of $1.3 million and $115,000 a month in spousal support until January 31, 2024, is also required from the singer and talk show presenter.
A spokesperson for Clarkson has been contacted by CNN for comment.
Blackstock is presently residing there and making rent payments, despite the fact that Clarkson was given the rights to their Montana property as part of their divorce.
While Blackstock will receive all of the family’s cattle from their farm, Clarkson will retain several vehicles and the dogs.
After seven years of marriage, the pair filed for divorce, and Clarkson was made legally single in August.
The Cause of The Breakup
“They disagreed on so many levels, and being in quarantine together made their issues unresolvable. In June 2020, a source close to Clarkson told Us that she had filed for divorce. “Everyone believed Kelly and Brandon had the ideal union, but that was obviously not the case. Kelly is rather high-strung, but Brandon is really easy to back.
The insider further stated that their relationship “changed” as a result of Clarkson spending more time in California.
In September 2020, Clarkson was sued by Brandon Blackstock’s father Narvel Blackstock’s business, Starstruck Management Group, on the grounds that their longtime client owes them $1.4 million in unpaid commissions in addition to the $1.9 million she had previously paid.
Since 2007, Clarkson has been employed by her father-in-business. law’s The American Idol alum is also accused of not having paid the full commission for her work on The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Voice in 2020, according to the paperwork, and she is expected to owe the company at least $5.4 million by the end of the year.
In November 2020, the “Since U Been Gone” singer countersued Starstruck. In her documents, Clarkson claimed that the management team had engaged in “procuring, offering, promising, or seeking to procure employment or engagements” without holding the appropriate licenses, in violation of the California Labor Code.
In response, Narvel said in a statement at the time: “[Clarkson’s petition] deliberately ignores the fact that Kelly always had her own authorized talent agency, the Creative Artists Agency.
Starstruck Management Group offered talent management services on her behalf while CAA served as her official agency, he continued. Kelly is regrettably attempting to avoid paying commissions that are due and owed to Starstruck in order to obtain a perceived advantage in her ongoing divorce and custody cases.
