Why Elly Clarkson And Brandon Blackstock Split? Was Any Agreement Involved?

As she and Brandon Blackstock fight in court over their breakup, the singer is getting a lot of ideas for her next album. After two years of dating, Clarkson and Blackstock got married in October 2013. “I can’t be happy. She told before their wedding, “He’s killing my creativity.” “I’m writing all this happy stuff. It’s killing me.”

In 2014, they had a daughter named River, and in April 2016, they had a son named Remington. The talent manager has a son and a daughter with his ex-wife, Melissa Ashworth. Their names are Savannah and Seth.

Clarkson told in February 2020, “I think being a parent changes you in the best ways.” “It’s definitely hard, but it’s made me stronger. It’s the most difficult job there is. I think it helps you be less selfish. It makes you decide what’s most important.”

As found out in June 2020 that after almost seven years of marriage, Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock, citing “irreconcilable differences.” After living in Montana for a few months during the coronavirus pandemic, the family of four got the news.

“Well, it’s not a big secret. The “Stronger” singer told Willie Geist in September 2020, “My life has been a little bit of a dumpster.” “For me, the last few months have been a little rough. I’ve been talking to people who’ve been divorced. I don’t know how people can go through that without having a way to get out of it, because it’s the worst thing that could happen to anyone.”

What Caused Them To Break Up?

“They had problems with each other in a lot of ways, and being in quarantine together made things even worse. So she filed for divorce,” a person close to Clarkson told Us in June 2020. “Everyone thought Kelly and Brandon’s marriage was perfect, but it wasn’t. Brandon is very easygoing, but Kelly is pretty tense. The fact that Clarkson spent more time in California “changed things” between them, the source said.

The Agreement On Custody

Us confirmed in November 2020 that Clarkson had primary custody of River and Remington. “The Court finds that in this case, it is in the best interest of the minor children to have stability and continuity, which weighs in favor of Petitioner having primary custody,” the document said.

“The fights between the parents are getting worse. It’s hard for the parents to work together because they don’t trust each other.”\The former couple will share physical and legal custody of their kids, and Blackstock will FaceTime with the kids every day “at a mutually agreed upon time,” according to the paperwork.

The Support for A Spouse

Clarkson asked the court to enforce their prenuptial agreement and stop spousal support. However, TMZ says that he wants the musician to pay him $436,000 a month, which includes $301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support. He also wants Clarkson to pay the $2 million he needs to pay his lawyer.

The Toughest Part

“That’s awful. There are a lot of tough parts. The kids are the hardest thing for me. On her talk show in December 2020, Clarkson said, “That’s the hardest for me.” “I think women are taught to take it all on, and you can handle it and be fine, but you worry about your babies.”

Finalizing Things

According to court documents from August 2021, Clarkson and Blackstock will no longer be “married or in a domestic partnership” on January 7, 2022.

Problems with Property

“Kelly recently had a big legal setback in her attempt to get Brandon kicked out of the Montana property that the judge gave to her alone,” a source told Us exclusively after the November 11 hearing. “He has been living there, and he said he can’t afford to buy a home of his own right now because the financial part of their divorce hasn’t been settled yet.”

Clarkson spoke to the judge during the hearing, hoping to get her ex-husband kicked off her Montana ranch. However, she failed. “The judge sided with Brandon and ruled in his favor, but the order hasn’t been signed off on yet,” the insider said, adding that the two would be back in court in February 2022.

Officially Done

A judge approved their divorce agreement in March 2022, giving Blackstock $115,000 a month in alimony until January 2024. He will also get $45,600 a month in child support. Clarkson will have primary custody of the child. Blackstock can stay in the Montana ranch that he and his ex-wife used to own until June, but he has to pay his ex $12,500 a month in rent until then.
