Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock seemed like the perfect country music couple, but sadly they filed for divorce back in June of 2020 and things got a bit ugly. Clarkson won primary custody of their children, but Blackstock filed for a huge settlement in Decemeber of 2020. He requested she pay him US$436,000 per month in spousal and child support, as well as US$2 million for his attorney fees. In the end, the judge has ruled that Clarkson must pay him US$195,601 per month, plus US$1.25 million towards his attorney fees.
