According to a court ruling, Kelly Clarkson gets to keep her Montana ranch, which she bought in 2019 at auction for $10.4 million.
She has been fighting with her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock over property during their divorce settlement.
According to TMZ, he argues that since the home was purchased during their marriage, he has a right to it.
The title belongs to her alone, and in her prenuptial agreement, she is entitled to keep everything she bought alone during their marriage.
In August, a judge ruled that the prenup must remain in place.
Kelly was declared legally single in late September.
To make matters worse, Blackstock has been staying on the property and refuses to go.
It is his primary residence at the time.
Blackstock had demanded a 50/50 share of their assets, as well as half of her income generated during their marriage.
However, his motion was allegedly denied by a court.
With a singing career, a talk show, and a spot on The Voice, Kelly has been the more successful of the two.
She is said to be worth more than $45 million.
Clarkson reportedly wants to sell his Montana ranch, according to reports from August.
According to TMZ, Clarkson’s lawyer Laura Wasser had previously requested the judge for permission to sell the home, to which Blackstock’s attorneys protested, with no decision on the prenuptial agreement at the time.
Clarkson’s reps have been contacted for comment by MailOnline.
Kelly was said to have ‘led out a scream of excitement when she heard her prenuptial agreement had been maintained earlier this summer, with other coaches Blake Shelton and Ariana Grande joining in.
According to the publication, while shooting the singing competition, Clarkson got an email from her attorneys informing her that her prenuptial agreement had been upheld, allowing her to keep the majority of her assets and income.
Clarkson was ordered to pay Blackstock about $200,000 (£144,000) each month in spousal and child support in July.
Clarkson’s finances were also exposed in the records, which indicated that she makes almost $2.4 million (£1.8 million) each month.
Clarkson will maintain the majority of their assets, including the Montana property where Blackstock is now staying, according to TMZ.
Clarkson’s friend and colleague coach Shelton recently severed relations with Blackstock, who had handled the country singer for several years, according to sources.
According to reports, a court agreed with Clarkson’s counsel that the signed prenuptial agreement had to be considered.
According to the article, Clarkson now has the authority to sell the Montana property because she was the one who bought it.
The divorce of the ex-couple has been ‘bifurcated,’ which means that the end of the marriage has been proclaimed.
Clarkson has been given primary custody of the couple’s minor children, River, seven, and Remington, five, according to the article.
Clarkson was reported earlier this week to have agreed to pay 70% of her children’s school tuition and costs, but had refused to pay for the Montana property.
The judge had ordered Blackstock to shoulder the financial burden of his Montana ranch, which has monthly expenses of about $81,000 (£58,000)
A court record obtained by TMZ states that Clarkson will continue to pay Blackstock $150,000 (£108,000) each month as well as $45,000 (£32,000) in child support until the divorce case is resolved.
The long-term details of any spousal assistance are yet unknown.
In her career, the singer has sold more than 25 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide. She presently has her own successful talk show.
Clarkson and Blackstock, a country music manager, started dating in 2011 and married in 2013.
With his ex-wife Melissa Ashworth, Blackstock has a 13-year-old son Seth and a 17-year-old daughter Savannah..
In 2017, she sparked speculation that she and Blackstock might be expecting a third child, as she admitted to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay she had ‘baby fever’.
Clarkson said, “Oh my gosh!” when Gordon’s 13-month-old son Oscar appeared during their chat. Please don’t do this. I really want another child, but my husband says, “No!” We already have four!’
‘You get baby fever when you see them and you’re like, ‘Oh, I miss the chubby little legs and the little face.’
