Talk show queen Kelly Clarkson has been ordered to pay her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock a ton in monthly support based on her monthly income of $1.5 million.

The judge heard arguments from both parties and reached the decision after hearing how much Clarkson was making. Per court documents, the entertainer earns $1,583,617 a month from her various gigs.

The order says the payments are to start in April 2021, meaning she will have to make retroactive payments.

The judge said Kelly will “pay child support to (Brandon) for the benefit of the minor children, River Rose Blackstock, born June 12, 2014, and Remington Alexander Blackstock, born April 12, 2016, in the amount of $45,601 per month.”

Blackstock had been seeking $436,000 a month in support. He believed his ex should be on the hook for $301,000 a month in spousal support and $135,000 a month for child support.

Clarkson will also have to pay her ex $1.25 million to cover his legal fees.

Blackstock revealed he is leaving the entertainment business. He told the court he no longer is working as a manager and has made a "very deliberate choice to change his life and become a rancher full-time." Clarkson's ex still manages Blake Shelton's career but says it takes minimal time.

The divorce has yet to be finalized but the temporary support order will cover things until a settlement is reached.

As Radar previously reported, Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock back in June 2020. The two had been married for 7 years and share 2 children named River Rose and Remington.

The split has been extremely contentious due to Blackstock having been Clarkson’s manager for years. After the divorce was filed, Clarkson’s former management company accused her of owing $1.4 million in unpaid commissions.

She fired back accusing them of violating talent agent laws and is fighting them with the California Labor Commission. She denies owing them a dime. The case is still ongoing.

Back in November, Clarkson was awarded primary custody of her 2 children. Blackstock wanted to take the kids back to Montana but the singer fought to keep them in California, where she films her show.

The order read, “The court finds that the minor children are not now and have not been residents of Montana and that California is their home state."
