Some women learn about 50/50 relationships the hard way.
Kelly Clarkson is the latest female celebrity to learn the repercussion of marrying a man who mostly married you because you’re financially well off.
She settled her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.
On Wednesday, a judge signed off on a settlement between the singer and her ex in Los Angeles Superior Court.
According to court documents, Clarkson has agreed to pay Blackstock spousal support totaling $115,000 per month until January 31, 2024, with the exception that those payments would end should Blackstock remarry before that date, or if either party dies prior to it.
Lucky her. She only has to pay him for 2 years, which equals a little more than $2.5 Million.
The talk show host will also have to pay her ex $45,601 per month in child support. Both the spousal and child support payments were to begin on Feb. 1, 2022.
“Child support shall continue per statute until the Minor Children reach the age of eighteen, or, if still attending high school full-time, until the Minor Children graduate from high school or reach the age of 19, die, marry, become self-supporting, emancipated, or further order of Court, whichever event shall first occur,” the documents state.
Clarkson and Blackstock agreed to share joint legal and physical custody of their two kids. River Rose, 7 and Remington Alexander, 5. However, documents note that Clarkson will have primary physical custody of their kids in Los Angeles. Blackstock also has two additional children from another marriage,
Clarkson filed for divorce in June 2020 after nearly 7 years of marriage. Their marital status was terminated in August 2021.
The two wed on October 20, 2013 after meeting him at a rehearsal for the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2006, People reported. The star was on hand to sing a duet of “What Hurts the Most” with Rascal Flatts. Blackstock was the group’s tour manager at the time.
The singer and talk show host has filed paperwork to change her legal name from Kelly Clarkson to Kelly Brianne. Brianne is the star’s middle name.
Women these days want love so badly, that they will buy it by dating/marrying a man who is mostly with her for her financial status.
Most women take very little time to understand the dynamics of the way a man thinks and his needs. Women need to understand that YES you can get married to a 50/50 man. But he doesn’t love you for you. Therefore he is going to TAKE from you. Real men would never financially take from a woman.
Women work so hard these days, just to avoid getting a feminine coach and give half of their money to a man. Cray!
Like what man doesn’t want a rich woman? Does he still want you if he has to provide for you?
How many men love talking to you on the phone for free? Would he still want to talk to you if he had to pay?
Maybe she and Mary J can do a duet together called “Finally Learned My Lesson.”
