During their marriage, Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock had two children together, daughter River Rose and son Remington Alexander. Although the divorce process has reportedly been difficult, Clarkson was awarded primary custody of their two children (via The Sun). Per Us Weekly, Clarkson’s expanding income, which currently stands at around $2 million per month, is said to have driven a wedge between her and Blackstock. Speaking about the breakdown of the couple’s marriage, an insider alleged that Blackstock “was just using her for her money and lifestyle” ahead of their split.
“The marriage was really, really awful at the end … Kelly felt that she could no longer trust Brandon. She had a lot of questions that he just couldn’t answer.” In a statement to the publication, the source added how there was “tremendous resentment” between the couple and a lot of “tension in the family home.” Thankfully, it seems the “Kelly Clarkson Show” host is moving onward and upward, and recently purchased a $5.4 million residence in Toluca Lake, California. “Buying a new house for the kids was also a new beginning for Kelly … It was freedom,” the insider concluded.
