Blackstock filed official documents demanding Kelly disable the security cameras on their Montana ranch where he’s been living. According to the documents, obtained by The Blast, the OG American Idol winner has been forced to turn off the 13 cameras set up throughout the property. The request doesn’t specify exactly why Blackstock wants them disabled.
“Kelly Blackstock shall forth with turn off all web-cams, trail cams, and any other security cameras at (the address) which are now approximately 13 in total,” the order states.
A Los Angeles County Court judge signed off on the agreement, and Kelly is being forced to disable the cameras. The Blast sources say it’s simply about privacy, and Blackstock wants to live his own life without Kelly being able to view his private life. It should be noted. Reportedly, the cameras are pointed at the exterior of the home and none of them are on the inside of the property.
The singer and talk show host will also have to send proof to her ex-husband’s attorneys that she disabled the equipment and “specify how that was accomplished.” The new court order includes some sort of “sanctions” or a fine amongst the parties.
Kelly agreed to give her former husband 5.12% percent of the Montana property, equaling $908,800 of its total $17,750,000 value. The documents also made clear that Blackstock does not have any ownership interest in the property adjoining the ranch that Kelly solely owns.
An L.A. county judge awarded Kelly ownership of the ranch in October 2021, but in December, Kelly experienced a setback when she failed to evict Blackstock from the property.
Blackstock reportedly has argued that the Montana home was “marital property,” and he continued to live there even after he and Kelly split in 2020.
In th meantime, Kelly legally changed her name from Kelly Blackstock to Kelly Brianne, her first and middle name. She will continue to use Clarkson as her stage name.
