Just months after their divorce was finalized, Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock reportedly went back to court over privacy issues at Clarkson’s Montana ranch.

Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after nearly 7 years of marriage. A huge point of contention in their divorce settlement was Clarkson’s Montana ranch where Blackstock currently resides. While the judge upheld Kelly’s sole ownership of the property, her ex-husband was given permission to live there until June, but is paying the American Idol champ $12,500 a month in rent.

Despite Blackstock moving off of the property next month, her former manager/husband took her back to court over the use of 13 exterior security cameras. Court documents obtained by The Blast show that Clarkson has been ordered to turn off all cameras on the property while Blackstock is living there.

“Kelly Blackstock shall forth with turn off all web-cams, trail cams, and any other security cameras at (the address) which are now approximately 13 in total,” the Los Angeles County Court judge stated in the documents.

After turning off the cameras, Kelly’s lawyers are required to send proof to Brandon’s lawyers and be clear about how they were disabled.


It’s unclear where Blackstock will move to after his rental agreement expires next month, but he reportedly will have ten days to move his personal and business belongings off of the Montana property after the deadline, and he can’t return to the ranch without permission.

But, Blackstock shouldn’t have any trouble finding somewhere else to live. The music manager will be receiving $115,000 a month in alimony until January 2024 and $45,601 a month in child support from Clarkson until their children, River Rose (7) and Remington Alexander (6) turn 18-years-old. He also received a tax-free, one-time check of $1,326,161 from Clarkson as part of their divorce settlement.
