Kelly Clarkson Ordered To Pay Annual Spousal and Child Support But Fans Wish Ex Will 'Man Up'
Kelly Clarkson is legally required to pay child support and spousal support to ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.
The Los Angeles County Court has recently ordered the "American Idol" winner to provide Blackstock a $150,000 spousal support every month.
Aside from the $45,601 in child support, the singer is also responsible for paying her estranged husband's legal fees.
These combined amounts to $200,00 per month and 3.2 Million dollars annually if the two parties agree on the settlement.
Brandon had been Clarkson's manager in Starstruck Entertainment with his father, Narvel Blackstock.

Can Kelly Clarkson Pay Off $5.5 Mansion?
This month, Kelly Clarkson purchased her post-breakup mansion, which was priced at $5.5 million.
The New York Post reported that the mansion is located in Toluca Lake in Lose Angeles, California.
The 5,000 square feet mansion has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, retailing in the market for $5.445 million. The "Since You've Been Gone" singer bought the estate after being given primary custody of her two daughters.
The girls will be visited by their father, Brandon Blackstock, in their new home as Clarkson's ex earned the visitation rights over them. After four years on the market, the celebrity also sold her Tennessee mansion for 6.3 million.
