Brandon Blackstock, Kelly Clarkson’s ex-husband, fought for a long time to get his hands on her Montana ranch. As required by their divorce agreement, he left her property on June 1 and has since made firm preparations to turn cattle ranching into his full-time profession.
After Moving Out of Kelly Clarkson’s Ranch Brandon Blackstock Buys $1.8 Million Montana Home!!
The music manager, 45, bought the house in Butte, Montana, on April 18, a little over a month after their divorce was finalized, according to a deed transfer acquired by our sources. Although the home had a $1.8 million asking price, it is unknown how much Blackstock actually paid for it.
Days after the divorce was finalized, Blackstock changed the name of his cattle ranching company from Vintage Valley Ranch to V Bar V Cattle Co. as part of his ambitions to leave the entertainment world and devote himself to ranching full-time.
Keep in mind that Blake Shelton, who supposedly fired him in support of his fellow Voice judge, was his final client in the music industry. Blackstock was forced to look for another field of employment. He launched his business on Clarkson’s $17,750,000 ranch, but he moved to a smaller house. After their divorce was formally finalized in mid-April, Blackstock bought a $1.8 million house in Butte, Montana.
Following the pair’s November 11 hearing, according to our sources, in December 2021, Kelly recently had a huge court defeat in an effort to get Brandon expelled from the Montana home that the judge allocated completely to her.
He has been residing there and claimed that, due to the unresolved financial component of their divorce, he does not now have the resources to afford to buy a home of his own. A judge ruled that Blackstock may stay at the ranch until June as long as he paid Clarkson $12,500 in monthly rent until the end of their divorce proceedings, which took place in June 2022 after four more months of legal wrangling.
After nearly 7 years of marriage, Clarkson filed for divorce from the Texas native in June 2020, citing irreconcilable differences. One of our sources, who is close to the singer, told us that they were having continuous fights and the quarantining together heightened their issues.
That’s why the singer filed for divorce. She added, saying, the world thought they were in a perfect and happy marriage, but they weren’t. Kelly is rather high-strung, but Brandon is really relaxed.
Despite the fact that these actions end his marriage to the talk-show personality, the two will still argue in court over their previous business partnership. Blackstock’s father, Narvel Blackstock, owns Starstruck Management Group, which is suing the pop artist for $1.4 million, alleging that she still owes them a commission for her previous work.
Because she believes that her ex-husband and ex-father-in-law were operating the business illegally in the state of California, Clarkson is countersuing and wants to have their contract declared void. The former couple’s personal tale is now done, but it appears that their bitter story will continue in court in another chapter.
