Kelly Clarkson‘s ex-husband Brandon Blackstock is requesting a shockingly high amount of child and spousal support. The music manager is asking for $436,000 in monthly support from his ex-wife.
This news comes after Kelly was awarded primary physical custody of the couple’s two young children, River Rose and Remington Alexander.
Kelly Clarkson’s Ex-Husband Is Seeking $436,000 In Monthly Support
“Brandon’s been equally unreasonable in his requests for child and spousal support, as well as attorney fees,” a source shared with PEOPLE. “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.”
“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,” added the source.
The host of The Kelly Clarkson Show filed for divorce in June after seven years of marriage.
Kelly recently shared with her talk show viewers that she didn’t see the divorce coming.
“Definitely didn’t see anything coming that came, but what I’m dealing with is hard — it involves more than just my heart, it involves a lot of little hearts,” she shared. “We know the best thing here is to protect our children and their little hearts. So I’m usually very open and I usually talk about everything but in this case I will talk a little bit here and there about how it affects me personally, but probably won’t go too far into it because I’m a mama bear and my kids come first.”
