Kelly Clarkson’s Redemption: Winning the Battle Against Her Ex-Husband

Kelly Clarkson has been vocal about the challenges she faced following her divorce, including the financial fallout that ensued. However, there’s good news on the horizon for the singer as she finally secured a favorable ruling in a case against her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock.

Blackstock, who managed Clarkson during their marriage, was found to have overcharged her in commission fees. A California labor commissioner recently ruled in Clarkson’s favor, ordering Blackstock to pay back approximately $2,641,374 that he had taken from her.

While Blackstock plans to appeal the decision, this victory marks a significant step towards financial redemption for Clarkson. Legal documents reveal that Blackstock acted unlawfully by booking gigs and signing deals for his former wife. Only talent agents, not managers, have the authority to secure and sign employment contracts for their clients.

As a result of this ruling, Blackstock now owes Clarkson $1,983,155.70 for her time as a coach on “The Voice,” $208,125 for her collaboration with Norwegian Cruise Lines, $450,000 for her partnership with Wayfair, and $93.30 for hosting the Billboard Music Awards three times.

Despite not being able to reclaim the percentage of money Blackstock kept from “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” the singer has made significant progress in her legal battles. Clarkson and Blackstock were married for almost seven years before she filed for divorce in 2020.

Their separation was followed by a bitter custody battle over their two children and disputes over their shared Montana ranch. However, Clarkson emerged victorious in court, securing primary custody of their 9-year-old daughter, River Rose, and their 7-year-old son, Remington “Remy” Alexander, as well as retaining ownership of the ranch.

After the split, Clarkson relocated to New York City, where she found healing and a fresh start. Reflecting on her journey, she stated, “I think COVID pointed out a lot of things… A lot of us didn’t make it relationship-wise.” Through her album “Chemistry,” which drew inspiration from her personal life, Clarkson offered her fans a glimpse into her experiences and revealed that she is content being single for now.

With this recent legal victory, Clarkson can look to the future with renewed optimism. Her resilience and determination to overcome the challenges of the past few years have earned her the admiration and support of fans worldwide. Let us share in the celebration of this favorable ruling and wish Kelly Clarkson continued success in all her future endeavors!
