Kelly Clarkson and her estranged husband, Brandon Blackstock, are hoping they can get a divorce as soon as possible, even if they haven’t hashed out all the financial issues in their split!
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Clarkson filed requesting the judge in their case separate the issues of the actual divorce and the money issues in their break-up. In other words, each of them really wants to be single, even if it will take a while to split up their marital assets.
We’re told both sides are in agreement that they want to get away from each other as soon as possible, although it’s unclear why they feel this way. Up until now, there was nothing indicating this would be a nasty breakup — that except the money. As we reported, Brandon has challenged the prenuptial agreement saying the document is invalid. Obviously, there is a ton of money on the line, after both parties did extremely well in the entertainment business.
Kelly Clarkson And Ex-Husband At War Over Their Finances
At this point, the couple is splitting joint custody of their children, but are still arguing over the amount of support that will be paid from Kelly to Brandon.
BTW — the ex-couple is still at war over money that was supposed to be paid to Brandon’s management company, for which Kelly was a client. According to reports, Kelly claims Blackstock was a licensed talent agent at the time, and she should not have to pay the millions in fees. Brandon’s attorney responded to the claims, saying, “The labor petition conveniently ignores the fact that Kelly had her own licensed talent agency CAA at all times. While Starstruck Management Group provided talent management services on her behalf, it did so at all times that CAA was her agency of record.”

As we reported, Kelly is going to add a lot to her plate in the upcoming months after it was announced she will be taking the coveted spot on NBC to replace Ellen DeGeneres. Our sources say Brandon is just trying to move on with his life, raise his children, and make sure the couple splits in a fair and balanced manner.
Unfortunately, it appears these two are headed down a long road of legal fighting, which could include a trial for the divorce, along with another one for the financial issues in their split. Plus, let’s hope the custody situation remains amicable because that could cause a whole other legal issue.
