January 31st, 2024 marks the end of Kelly Clarkson’s spousal support payments to her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock. Still, Clarkson says she “doesn’t hold grudges”.
She told People “I’m a let-go person; I don’t hold grudges. So it was really delving into what happened in my life and why—and what am I going to do about it?”
Considering Blackstock was recently ordered to pay Clarkson $2.6 million for “unlawfully procuring deals” while he served as her manager, how does that sum stack up against what she’s already paid him?
Clarkson was ordered to pay Blackstone an initial sum of $1.3 million, as well as monthly spousal support payments of $115K and monthly child support of $45K. As their divorce was settled in March, it’s likely that Clarkson has paid Blackstone approximately $2.4 million between the initial sum and spousal support. A source told UsWeekly:
“Kelly is feeling relieved that her spousal support to Brandon has come to an end. She’s been ready for this for a while now and is so happy her payments to Brandon will be complete. It’s so nice knowing that this chapter of her life can close with the new year. Kelly’s looking at this as a fresh start and she couldn’t be happier for a clean slate in 2024.”
