Despite being with an estimated $10 million on his own, Kelly Clarkson’s estranged husband Brandon Blackstock simply cannot get by on less than $301K a month in spousal support and an additional $135K in child support for their two children who don’t even live with him. According to People, Brandon is asking for what amounts to $5.2 MILLION DOLLARS a year in support even though he already has a lucrative career managing thirsty hos like Blake Shelton. He must be good at his job because he somehow managed to get People Magazine to name Blake The Sexiest Man Alive. Maybe he’s gunning for a cover for himself naming him The Pettiest Man Alive.
Just yesterday we learned that Kelly had been granted primary physical custody of her and Brandon’s two children, River Rose (6), and Remington Alexander (4). They are living with mom in L.A. as Kelly is currently filming both The Voice (with Brandon’s client Blake, awkward!) as well as her own talk show. Brandon is currently living at their Vintage Valley Ranch in Montana pretending to be a real cowboy and apparently feeding his stock shredded $100 bills and filling up the troughs with vintage Veuve Clicquot. According to People:
The music manager, 43, is seeking $436,000 in monthly spousal and child support after an L.A. County judge granted Clarkson primary physical custody of their children River Rose, 6, and Remington Alexander, 4, a source tells PEOPLE.
“Brandon’s been equally unreasonable in his requests for child and spousal support, as well as attorney fees,” the source says. “Kelly’s offered to pay for all the kids’ expenses, but Brandon seems to think he is entitled to and needs $301K in spousal support and $135K in child support per month.”
If Blackstock’s request remains, he’d receive more than $5.2 million per year.
I haven’t seen this level of divorce fuckery since, well, since a couple of months ago when Nicole Young asked Dr. Dre to break her off $2 million a month. As wild as that request was, this one’s wilder. Kelly is repped by THEE Laura Wasser which is possibly why Brandon has seven attorneys to feed. People adds:
“Additionally, he’s already asked for $2M for attorney fees when he’s the one driving up the cost of the divorce with seven attorneys just representing him alone,” the source adds.
Hopefully, Laura will be telling Brandon to get along, little doggie. It’s really starting to sound like the road apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to Blackstock men. Brandon is Kelly’s manager (or was, current status unknown) and Brandon’s dad Narvel Blackstock was Reba McEntire’s manager before they divorced after 26 years of marriage, which came as a complete shock to Reba. Now, if Kelly and Reba decided to get together to sing a duet called Givin’ Them Blackstocks The Boot, they’d easily make more than enough moolah to send Brandon packing for good AND win all the CMAs in the universe.
