Kelly Clarkson decided to celebrate on the set of The Voice after finally having her prenup upheld, which was validated by the judge in her divorce case this week.
Sources with more knowledge have told TMZ that while Clarkson was filming the singing competition on Wednesday, she got an email saying that her prenup was upheld in full by the judge.
And according to the news outlet, the prenup segregates all assets and income derived during her marriage to Brandon Blackstock.
Clarkson had accumulated Blackstock’s share of assets, including the big Montana Ranch, where Blackstock is living.
Contesting the prenup, Blackstock wanted to split the properties, along with income she earned during their marriage, but the judge shut him down straight away.
Blake Shelton, who managed Blackstock for years, apparently also terminated his relationship with him too and Ariana Grande, one of the judges, celebrated alongside Clarkson after hearing the news.
The singer’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, had argued during the trial on the prenup that there had to be accountability when someone signs a contract, and the judge had agreed with her.
But the divorce has been “bifurcated”, which means the actual announcement that the marriage is over is separate from the property settlement and custody issues, with the dissolution of the marriage being finalized in a few days time.
But for now, Clarkson has been awarded primary custody on a temporary basis due to Blackstock moving to Montana.
Clarkson has served as a coach on The Voice since its fourteenth season and rose to fame after winning the first season of American Idol in 2002, which gave her a record deal with RCA.
She quickly became the first American female artist to release the best-selling holiday album of the year with Wrapped in Red.
And Blackstock, forty-three, is a music manager and amateur pilot, meeting Clarkson in 2012 through his dad, Narvel Blackstock, who is Clarkson’s manager, with the pair marrying just a year after they met!
But it all come to a halt when Clarkson announced their divorce last year, admitting, as per Woman and Home, that they had “irreconcilable differences,” and were seeing things differently as they hunkered down in quarantine together.
Clarkson said last year: “I’m grateful in 2020 for the lesson I learned about… myself. Even at thirty-eight, I feel like I’m always changing and progressing in a good sense, in a good way. And I always want to make sure I’m being the best version of myself.”
