Kelly Clarkson’s ex-husband Brandon Blackstock is reportedly seeking a huge amount of spousal and child support in their divorce.
One of the latest court filings shows that Blackstock is now seeking $436,000 in monthly support from the singer. TMZ, citing court docs, reports that $301,000 of the total Blackstock is asking for would be for spousal support, while the remaining $135,000 would cover child support. Blackstock, 43, is also asking for $2 million to cover attorneys’ fees, multiple outlets report.
The six-figure monthly request reportedly comes amid heightened contention between the exes. The court presiding over the divorce case recently ruled that the “level of conflict between the parents has increased.” Documents specifically claimed Kelly Clarkson and her estranged ex are dealing with co-parenting problems stemming from “issues of trust,” People magazine reported Monday.
Following Clarkson’s win of primary custody, Blackstock can visit their son and daughter in Los Angeles and he also will be allowed to video chat with them every day. Blackstock will be able to spend Dec. 19 through Christmas at 2 p.m. with the kids. Meanwhile, Clarkson will reunite with them Christmas afternoon through the end of New Year’s.
