For over a decade, Brandon worked as Kelly's personal manager and was constantly by her side. Sources who worked with the former couple tell Radar, Kelly's ex-husband was constantly by her side and would rarely leave her alone.

An insider witnessed Brandon being very controlling and forcing his way into meetings that didn't involve him. We're told he had a say in everything during their marriage.

In June 2020, Kelly filed for divorce from Brandon back in June 2020 following 7 years of marriage. The two share 2 children named River Rose and Remington.

Following the split, Kelly cut ties with her ex and his father's management company. Her managers accuse Kelly of owing them millions in unpaid commissions. She fired back at the claims by filing a complaint with the California Labor Commission. The talk show host denies owing Brandon or his father a dime and believes they owe her money.

Instead of managing Kelly's career, Brandon is currently living at the Montana ranch they purchased together in 2019. The former couple had been living in the property during quarantine.

His lawyer said Brandon has made a "very deliberate choice to change his life and become a rancher full-time."

His revelation came as Brandon was trying to convince the judge to order Kelly to pay him $436,000 a month in support.

As Radar previously reported, earlier this week, the judge presiding over Kelly's divorce decided to award Brandon support but not lower than his request. Kelly was ordered to pay $200,000 a month in spousal and child support. The amount was determined based on the musician's $1,583,617 a month income.
