Kelly Clarkson and ex Brandon Blackstock have finally settled their divorce case after two years of bitter negotiation.

The 39-year-old singer, who announced her split from talent manager, 45, after nearly seven years of marriage in June 2020, will be paying her former spouse $45,601 per month in child support for their two kids River, seven, and Remington, five, according to TMZ.

Additionally, the three-time Grammy winner had agreed to a one-time payment of $1,326,161 and $115,000 per month in spousal support until January 31, 2024, according to The Blast.

Last year, it was reported that Clarkson earns a whopping $22.8 million per year thanks to her successful talk show and music career.

Clarkson will also be shelling out a ‘reimbursement’ payment of $50,000 for private air travel for the children as they continue to fly private until they’re fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to The Blast.

The pair will share joint custody of their little ones, but reside in Los Angeles with their mom, and visit their father in Montana one weekend a month.

Blackstock will remain living at their Montana ranch, and pay Clarkson $2,000 a month in rent until he moves out in June, according to The Blast.
