Kelly Clarkson officially SINGLE after bitter divorce from Brandon Blackstock & fights over singer’s $45M fortune

KELLY Clarkson is now officially a single woman following her dramatic divorce from her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

The Voice coach filed for divorce in June 2020, citing "irreconcilable differences," before winning primary custody of their two kids.


According to court documents filed in August, the singer has been legally declared single and her maiden name has been reinstated.

The exes split has been anything but cordial, as there has been plenty of hurdles to jump over for the American Idol alum.

The 39-year-old has to pay $150,000 per month in spousal support, along with around $45,000 a month for child support.

However, Brandon will be in charge of paying for the upkeep of their Montana ranch, which costs around $81,000 a month to run.

Originally, Kelly was hoping that her prenup was enforced after she amassed about $45million due to her album sales, TV work, and other deals.

In August 2021 her prenup was validated by a judge – a bit of news she reportedly learned while filming an episode of The Voice.

Upon hearing the news, Kelly "let out a scream" which then led to a full-on celebration, a source told TMZ at the time.

Previously, Kelly was also named the primary caretaker of the ex couple's two kids: daughter River Rose, six, and son Remington Alexander, four.

Brandon, 44, also has two kids, Savannah, and Seth from a previous relationship.

BACK TO DATING

Now that she is single, the TV star is said to be ready to hit the dating scene again.

A source told Us Weekly last month: She hasn’t been dating and has been waiting until she is legally divorced, which will be in the next two weeks.

“She wants a younger, up-and-coming country singer [who] understands the business."

During a recent interview with stand-up comic Kevin Hart, the performer revealed that she had "no example" of a good relationship growing up as her father was absent from her life.

She said she “didn’t grow up” with her dad and “didn’t know him at all," something that she said, "a lot" of people go through.
