Kelly Clarkson Couldn’t Get Her Ex-Husband Evicted From Their Montana Ranch

December 21, 2021 / Posted by:

Kelly Clarkson is a very rich woman. How rich, you might ask? Well, she’s at least $200,000 a month in spousal and child support rich, which I think we can all agree is enough to technically bump her from the celebrity standard pretty rich to the much more exclusive very rich. Kelly is so rich, she could buy any ranch in Montana, but! There’s one ranch Kelly wants, and it’s the one she already owns. The problem there is that it’s currently being occupied by her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock. And as Kelly recently learned, it doesn’t matter how rich a bitch is, sometimes the courts rule against you, and your ex-husband gets to keep squatting on your ranch.

Kelly was awarded the honor and distinction of being legally single a few months ago, but she’s been fighting Brandon on some things for the past little while. Like their Montana ranch. Ever since the two announced they were splitting up, Brandon has remained living at their Montana ranch, where their family was quarantining at the start of the pandemic (Kelly is currently living in Los Angeles). Back in August, a judge declared that their prenup was valid, which meant that Kelly could walk away from their seven-year marriage with anything she purchased with money she earned herself. Kelly bought and paid for the $10.4 million Vintage Valley Ranch in Montana, and in October, a judge ruled that she was the sole owner of the ranch.

So you would think that it would be very easy to tell Brandon to vamoose from the premises as soon as possible. But, it’s not. Because Brandon recently tried to argue that he can barely afford to buy a bottle of store-brand ranch salad dressing, let alone pony up the cash to buy himself a new ranch to live on. A judge bought it, and has decided to allow Brandon to keep living at what is legally Kelly’s crib. via UsWeekly:

“Kelly recently had a major legal setback in a bid to get Brandon evicted from the Montana property that the judge awarded solely to her,” a source exclusively tells Us. “He has been living in it and said he doesn’t have the financial means to afford to purchase a residence of his own at this time, citing the unresolved financial aspect of their divorce.”

“The judge sided with Brandon and ruled in his favor, the order just hasn’t been formally signed off on,” the insider adds.

According to court documents acquired by UsWeekly, Brandon claims it cost $81,000 a month to maintain the ranch, and that Brandon has previously testified that he wants out of the entertainment industry so that he can be a full-time rancher and rodeo sponsor. Brandon is paying for the maintenance fees on the ranch, and if he fails to do so, Kelly is legally allowed to sell the property (which she has requested to do, and was denied, because it currently has a resident – Brandon).

I know Brandon says he doesn’t have the cash to buy a new place, but to the best of my knowledge, Brandon’s daddy is still producer Narvel Blackstock (aka Reba McEntire’s ex-husband). So I’m not sure why he hasn’t hit up his paw-paw for cash for a new ranch, or at least a modest 3-bedroom ranch-style bungalow. Or better yet, why hasn’t Kelly come up with a perfectly legal scheme to get Brandon to move out? Like leaving a trail of $100 bills at his front door, that leads all the way into town, to the nearest real estate office. And on the last bill is a little Post-it note that reads: “Now that you have the money, why don’t you buy yourself something nice, like a place to live that isn’t my house.
