Pop singer Kelly Clarkson has been ordered to pay her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock $200,000 per month in spousal support and child support.
According to The Blast, Clarkson will pay out $45,601 per month for child support for six-year-old River Rose and four-year-old Remington Alexander — even though she has primary custody.
Blackstock will also receive $150,000 per month for spousal support, meaning that he now receives $2.4 million a year from the star. She must also pay his attorney fees which total $1.25 million.
He originally wanted $450,000 a month.
She may have to pay out a lot, but she is reportedly pleased about the judge’s decision for her to hold onto primary custody.
“As Kelly has said, her first priority in all of this is to take care of the kids and all the hearts that are involved in this divorce,” a second source said. “It’s been a hard time for everyone, but Kelly’s pleased with the court’s ruling regarding custody.”
