Kelly Clarkson ‘ ersus divorce may be something the lady never expected — all of us certainly didn’ t — but that doesn’ to mean she didn’ big t plan for it.
Thankfully the United states Idol veterinarian went into her marriage with Brandon Blackstock with eyes open — she had a prenup!
Yes, Kelly and Brandon signed the particular doc back on Oct 15, 2013, less than a 7 days before their intimate, barn-style wedding ceremony in the Dark Mountains of Tennessee.
Based on legal docs obtained by The Blast , the Since Oughout Been Gone singer is asking for the particular prenuptial agreement to be unplaned, which will block any possibility of her having to pay spousal assistance to Brandon.
Inneresting note here — Brandon is also her supervisor AND an exec maker on her hit daytime speak show. It’ s ambiguous if those professional romantic relationships will continue after their own split. We mean, do you really want to keep giving your boyfriend or girlfriend 15% of your earnings?? Plus continuing working together on a Television show sounds like the premise of a poor sitcom.
Nevertheless , the outlet’ s sources do say they’ re listening to the divorce is “ amicable” — with no main events like cheating or even abuse. While there’ ersus still a ton we don’ t know — the particular legal docs list the reason behind the split as the catch-all “ irreconcilable differences” — the filing seems to online backup that idea of cooperation. Not just are they each willingly spending money on their own attorneys, not challenging the other pay, they are also within agreement when it comes to the kids.
The couple reveal two children, 4-year-old Remington Alexander Blackstock and Water Rose Blackstock — who will turn six on Friday. Per The Blast , Kelly has asked the court to order joint lawful and physical custody, to become shared equally between each parents.
Phew. These custody battles could possibly get so vicious! This is great news for the kids.
As far as child assistance goes, it isn’ capital t listed in this filing. It might be covered by the prenup, when not it will simply become calculated by Kelly plus Brandon’ s income, for each California divorce law.
Speaking of parenting, based on one source that could be area of the reason behind the split . A good insider told OU on Thurs:
“ Kelly has consistently brought up wanting more kids, which Brandon doesn’ big t. ”
That would be a big change over the last couple of years as Kelly said in a 2016 interview the girl was sure she didn’ t want more children! When asked the question the girl responded:
“ No! Except if someone dies and gives all of us their kids or something, number I had miserable pregnancies, that’ s why. ”
She actually said she’ d produced her hubby get a vasectomy! She told Jenny McCarthy at the time:
“ I was actually pregnant with Remi, and am was like, ‘ You are obtaining fixed. This will never occur to me again. If some thing happens, it’ s magic of God. I actually told my OBGYN available while open, ‘ Basically get pregnant again, I will discover you! ’ ”
Was the girl exaggerating? Or did the lady really change her brain and then ask him in order to reverse the operation??
Well, at least this might sound like they agree on how to proceed when it comes to the kids they currently have…
