The documents also reveal Brandon has given up his career as a manager in the entertainment business and is becoming a "rancher full-time".

During the former couple's ongoing divorce, Kelly asked the court to allow her to sell their Montana ranch, but the judge denied the request and ordered Brandon to start covering the costs of the property.

According to the new order, Clarkson is also required to pay $1.25 million to cover Brandon's attorneys fees.

The singer filed for divorce in 2020, after seven years of marriage.

Kelly was previously granted primary physical custody over the couple's 2 minor children.

Kelly, 38, filed for divorce from Blackstock in June after 7 years of marriage. They share daughter, River Rose, 6, and son, Remington Alexander, 4. Blackstock also has two children from a previous marriage: Seth, far left, and Savannah, 2nd from left.

A source tells People that Blackstock, 43, has been "unreasonable" in his requests for support and attorney's fees from the 2002 American Idol winner.

"Kelly's offered to pay for all the kids' expenses, but Brandon seems to think he is entitled to and needs $301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support per month," said the source.

Blackstock claims he needs $5.2 million a year to continue living the life of luxury that he was accustomed to while married to Kelly.

The source said, "Additionally, he's already asked for $2 million for attorney fees when he's the one driving up the cost of the divorce with seven attorneys just representing him alone.

The exit comes a year after Ellen's former staffers complained about her bad behavior behind the scenes.

Her reputation as one of Hollywood's nicest people took a hit following sexual harassment allegations from current and former staffers.

One ex-employee said producers were mean and sexist which created a toxic work environment.

Ellen issued an apology to staff and insisted she would do better going forward.

Multiple producers were also fired as a result of the many complaints.

Ellen has just launched a new show, Ellen's Great Design Challenge, on HBO Max, and currently oversees a variety of TV programs.

Kelly Clarkson's hit daytime show is expected to fill the slot vacated on the schedule by DeGeneres' departure.

Kelly Clarkson sang a soulful rendition of the Jackson 5 classic song "Who's Lovin' You" on her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Fans were impressed by Kelly's vocal prowess on the song.

"She's so good I wanna cry," a user commented on the YouTube video.

"I just died. On the 1st note. Yassss Queen Kelly," another fan wrote.

The J5 is credited with recording the most famous version of "Who's Lovin' You" in 1969. The song was issued as the b-side to the Jackson 5's first single, "I Want You Back", which went to #1 on both the pop and R&B charts.

"Who's Lovin' You" appeared on the Jackson 5's debut album, Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5, but the song was never released as a standalone single.

The Jackson 5 group was founded by Joe Jackson in 1965 in Gary, Indiana, and comprised of his sons Jackie, Tito, and Jermaine. Younger brothers Marlon and Michael joined the group later.

"Who's Lovin' You" was originally written by William "Smokey" Robinson and recorded by The Miracles in 1960. You can hear the Miracles' original version below.

Is anyone else tired of reading about this Beyonce/Kelly Clarkson story? If you're like me, you don't care if one wack song sounds like another wack song. Don't they all sound the same nowadays anyway?

They're saying Clive Davis is about to kick the American Idol winner to the curb for running her mouth off about her song, “Already Gone”, being recorded over the same track as Bey's track "Halo." It seems that Kelly is pissed at a songwriter for pawning off the same track on both singers. I'm thinking that maybe Kelly never head Beyonce's "Halo" until she recorded over the track herself and then she said, "Hey, that lame Beyonce song sounds a lot like mine!"

Songwriter Ryan Tedder took to his Myspace blog yesterday to respond to the media gossip that Kelly threw him under the bus for basically reusing the same track and pawning it off on both singers.

Today he released an official statement denying he used the same track. He claimed that “Already Gone" -- the track he co-wrote with Kelly, and "Halo," the song he gave Bey, are two "entirely different songs conceptually, melodically, & lyrically." He goes on to deny trying to rip off the two singers with the same corny track.

But Kelly begged to differ. Speaking on Canadian radio yesterday, Kelly complained bitterly about Ryan duping her, and about J Records releasing "Already Gone" as a single against her wishes once she realized it was the same wack track. Now word is, an angry Clive Davis retaliated by threatening to cut the budget for her new album. The last time Kelly butt heads with Davis, sales of her last CD My December suffered big time.

So what's poor Kelly to do? Well, there's always iTunes and ringtones.
