Kelly Clarkson begs court NOT to award husband Brandon spousal support in divorce – and demands enforcement of prenup
KELLY Clarkson has asked the court not to give spousal support to her husband Brandon Blackstock as she protects her rumored $45 million fortune, The Sun can report.
The Voice judge and singer, 38, hinted at problems in her marriage by putting her mansion up for sale and spending her birthday alone before filing for divorce last week.
Court documents filed in LA on June 4 and obtained by The Sun show she's not willing to give Brandon a cent as they hash out the details of their divorce.
She is also asking for joint legal and physical custody of their two children, daughter River Rose, 5, and son Remington Alexander, 4.
Kelly, who has a successful career spanning almost 20 years, is believed to have amassed an eye-watering $45million from album sales, TV work and lucrative deals, and is demanding her prenup be enforced.
Documents show Kelly had Brandon sign the agreement almost a week before they tied the knot on October 15, 2013.
Kelly, who married Brandon on October 20, 2013, cited "irreconcilable differences" for the end of their marriage, and are have yet to decide on a separation date.
During the pandemic, Kelly and Brandon, 43, had been isolating at the Montana mansion they snapped up over a year ago.
They put their $10 million LA home up for sale earlier this year.
News of their split comes after the singer decided to spend her birthday completely alone in April.
She told talk show host Seth Meyers: "I looked at my husband because it was a rough week of work and non-stop everything, and I said, 'I don't want to cook one damn meal, I don't want to clean one article of clothing, I don't want to do anything.'
“…For my birthday, I literally asked to be left alone which is funny because we're all in isolation but I'm not in isolation because I'm constantly surrounded by people.
"I was alone and I enjoyed it. I did nothing but eat stuff that made me gain ten pounds and I watched whatever I was watching.”
Kelly continued to vent her frustrations at the time.
She continued to explain: "No matter what you do – what arts and crafts thing I do and I do tons of it – on top of all the work.
"And you know, you have kids, they don't appreciate it. They don't even know how to appreciate it."
The divorce is likely to leave Brandon searching for work as he's currently his wife's manager and an executive producer on The Kelly Clarkson Show, while also managing country star Blake Shelton.
Kelly was quick to cut ties with her hubby, with the Grammy Award winner unfollowing Brandon on Instagram, although she is yet to remove him from Twitter.
The couple tied the knot at Blackberry Farm, a luxury resort in Walland, Tennessee, and Kelly is also stepmom to Seth, 13, and Savannah, 18, from the music executive’s previous relationship.
They moved back to LA in 2018 after purchasing their luxury eight bedroom, 11 bathroom farmhouse.
The sprawling 10,000-square-foot home sits on a half-acre of land and also features a two-level guest house next to the outdoor BBQ station, pool and jacuzzi.
