Kelly Clarkson Forks Over a Percentage of Montana Ranch to Ex-Husband

Kelly Clarkson Brandon Blackstock Awards

Kelly Clarkson has reached an agreement with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock about their Montana ranch, which they have been battling over for months.

The American Idol OG winner agreed to give her former husband 5.12% percent of the property, equaling $908,800 of its total $17,750,000 value. This, according to new court documents filed in Los Angeles on Thursday (Jan 20), and obtained by People.

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 the afternoon talk show host ownership of the ranch in October, 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 July, the courts ordered The Voice coach to pay her ex-husband and former manager $200,000 a month in spousal and child support, though a source previously told Peoople that Blackstock had requested $436,000 a month.

Kelly’s marriage to Blackstock came to an official end in August when a judge signed off on a legal dissolution of her marriage a year and three months after she filed for divorce.

The singer requested that the judge declare her legally divorced in July, arguing that she and her ex “both deserve the opportunity to build a new life.” While Kelly is officially divorced, the two still have legal issues–mostly monetary–to work out.

Kelly was granted primary physical custody in November of their children River Rose, 7, and Remington Alexander, 5.

Meanwhile, Kelly’s 20 year old stepdaughter, Savannah, has welcomed her first baby with boyfriend Quentin Lee on January 17. Blackstock shares Savannah and son Seth with his first ex-wife Melissa Ashworth.
