Kelly Clarkson Settles Montana Ranch Ownership With Ex Brandon Blackstock
Kelly Clarkson and her ex, Brandon Blackstock, have reached an agreement in their ongoing divorce battle over ownership of their Montana ranch.
According to legal documents obtained by ET, the talk show host agreed to give Blackstock a 5.12 percent ownership of their Warren Peak Ranch property. While the ranch is valued at $17,750,00, the documents state “Brandon’s 5.12% ownership interest in the Warren Peak Ranch is $908,800.”
Per the docs (filed Thursday, January 20), “Brandon has no ownership interest” in an adjoining property, and “Kelly owns 100%” of said property. The L.A. Superior Court judge signed off on the settlement Wednesday.
Back in October, a judge ruled that the ranch belonged to The Voice judge. At the time, Blackstock argued that all property and assets — including the ranch — acquired during their marriage should be considered marital property (owned at an even 50/50 split). That position was swiftly rejected, as the judge ruled Clarkson had all rights to the other rental properties, and Brandon had no ownership, as stated in the terms of their prenuptial agreement.
Last August, we reported the 39-year-old singer’s prenuptial agreement had been validated by the judge. The prenuptial agreement segregates all assets and income derived during her marriage to Blackstock, 45. Clarkson was legally declared single and her maiden name was restored, according to court documents filed in August.
The singer filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after nearly seven years of marriage. The two share 7-year-old daughter, River, and 5-year-old son, Remington. “Kelly is thankful for her relationship with Brandon, she learned a lot about herself and had two perfect kids,” a source told ET back in September. “Kelly is looking forward to moving on and successfully co-parenting with Brandon.”
