Will Kelly Clarkson lose her net worth after divorce?
Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock are now finally separated. The couple is splitting up, and the two will soon go down their own separate paths.
But will Kelly Clarkson’s net worth drop after she leaves her ex? Let’s dig into this scoop a little more, then discuss that question in detail.
What you need to know
In case you’re out of the loop, let’s go over the details of Clarkson & Blackstock’s separation, shall we?
In June of 2020, Clarkson filed for divorce and told the court there were “irreconcilable differences” between her & Blackstock. She got custody of the kids in November of that year, and she became officially, legally divorced from Blackstock in July of 2021. Clarkson stated, “[We, my ex-husband and I,] both deserve the opportunity to build a new life.”
On her own talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, the singer discussed how she’s doing her best to care for her children during this fragile time. She also disclosed that she’ll be releasing a personal record about the divorce process, saying, “It’s been very therapeutic for me.”
That’s all good and all, and we’re very happy for her! But what about Kelly Clarkson’s net worth? How has that been affected by the divorce? Let’s dive into this scoop and see where things are going from here.
Is Clarkson’s value dropping?
Clarkson has been busy with the costs of the pricey separation. She has to pay over $200,000 in spousal support & child costs. That’s quite a lot of money, and it can’t be easy for even a celebrity like her to pay up. Sure, Blackstock has to pay transportation to get their kids to and from her home state, but she’s paying the bulk of it.
Things are looking bleak. . . but hold up. There’s one piece of news we haven’t shared yet about the net worth of Kelly Clarkson. Hold on tight!
Things look up
On October 2nd, 2021, Clarkson was given her and her husband’s ranch in Montana. E! News broke the story and explained this ranch is worth over ten million dollars. Wow!
Blackstock wanted to share the property between him & Clarkson, telling the judge it was a “marital” acquisition. Not to mention he lives at the ranch, so there’s that to consider too. However, the judge disagreed, because it was Clarkson who bought the ranch in the first place. Therefore, it was given to her.
She also told the courts in the past she wants to sell the property. Though the court initially rejected this notion, we imagine she’ll be able to follow through on this now that the property has been granted to her. That’s another ten million in the bank!
So, is Kelly Clarkson’s net worth dropping due to the divorce? In one word: no. The road has been rocky, but it looks like she’s going to be just fine. In fact, it looks like the divorce is leaving her better than ever before. Good for her! You go, girl!
There you have it!
So that’s all you need to know about Kelly Clarkson’s divorce & net worth! We wish both her & Blackstock the best through this separation, as we know it can be a difficult process. We’ll give you more news as it comes.
