In white folks with very messy (very wealthy) divorce drama news, Kelly Clarkson’s estranged husband wants her to pay up to the tune of $436,000 a month.

ET Online confirmed that 43-year-old talent manager Brandon Blackstock has filed legal docs requesting that Clarkson pay him that staggering amount. The breakdown is $301,000 in spousal support and the remaining $135,000 for child support for their two children, River, 6, and Remington, 4. If Blackstock’s request is granted, he’d receive more than $5.2 million per year.

That’s not all however, he is also asking his ex for $2 million to cover his attorney’s fees. Kelly’s fans are currently trolling Brandon’s Instagram with comments like; “Get a job, bro!” and “A REAL man doesn’t ask a woman for spousal support.”

The singer/host filed for divorce from her husband in June after six years of marriage. This latest news about their contentious divorce comes after Kelly said on her talk show that she realized that she wanted to move on after having a revelation about their marriage; “This isn’t happiness.”

Glennon, you write about the fallout from your divorce — I’m obviously going through one right now,” said Clarkson during a chat with author Glennon Doyle and Alicia Keys. “It’s horrible. There are so many hard parts. The hardest for me is the kids … I think, as women especially, we’re trained to take it all on and deal with it and you’re fine. But it’s your babies that you worry about.”


“This isn’t happiness, and we both deserve better. That line so hit home for me: I don’t want this for everyone in this scenario right now.”


Clarkson won primary custody of the estranged couple’s two children earlier this week.

Estranged spouses requesting support from their famed exes is of course nothing new.
