According to documents, Clarkson will not have to worry about the payments on the one-time family ranch in their ongoing divorce battle.

Despite the $81,000 a month price it takes to run the property, her soon-to-be ex-husband will be solely responsible for footing the bill.

Clarkson is already giving Blackstock a boatload of cash every month to the tune of $200,000.

But just because the talk show host won't need to make payments on the Montana ranch, it doesn't mean she's off the hook completely.

When it comes to their children -- daughter River, 7, and son Remington, 5 -- the country tycoon will be paying for their ritzy education.

The judge in their ongoing divorce has ordered Clarkson to pay 70% of the tuition and other costs of their children's private school education.

It makes sense considering former American Idol star makes significantly more money than her estrange husband, who quit his career in the music scene to be a full-time ranch hand at their property.

Clarkson's monthly income sits high at a whopping $1.5 million, while her ex collects drastically less at around $10,000.

As Radar reported, Blackstock will also receive $150,000 per month from the singer for spousal support. Clarkson will also have to pay her ex $45,601 every month for child support.

While $200,000 sounds like a lot for the average Joe, Clarkson's estranged husband wanted significantly more from the superstar.

He originally asked for $436,000 a month in support, which he broke down as $301,000 for spousal and $135,000 for the kids.

The latest decision from the judge puts them one inch closer to the finish line in their nasty divorce battle.

Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock -- who is Reba McEntire's former stepson -- in June 2020 after almost seven years of marriage.
