The legal victory comes as People magazine reports that Brandon requested $436,000 a month in spousal support and child support from Kelly.

A Los Angeles County Court judge issued the order this week following a hearing on the former couple's property and child custody, according to documents obtained by The Blast.

Court docs lists the singer/TV personalty's monthly income at over $1.5 million.

The new payment plan is back dated to April 1, 2021.

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.

According to court docs, Dr. Dre, 56, is ordered to cut a check in the amount of $293,306 per month to his ex-wife, which is due on the first of every month.

"[Dre] is ordered to pay to the [Nicole] spousal support in the sum of $293,306.00 per month, payable on the first of each month, commencing August 1, 2021," the order states. That equals a whopping $3,519,672 a year in support, not including other expenses.

Nicole, 51, is guaranteed $300,000 per month as long as she doesn't remarry, according to the court order. Once she remarries, or if death should befall either of them, the checks will stop.

Dre will also pay her health insurance which will be similar to the coverage she had during the marriage. All other insurance for Nicole will be paid out of her pocket.

Dr. Dre's estranged wife Nicole Young is making serious allegations of spousal abuse while he's laid up in an intensive care unit.

According to PEOPLE, Nicole, 51, alleges that Dr, born Andre Young, "held a gun to my head" twice in 2000 and 2001, that he "punched me in the head/face" in 1999 and 200 and that he "kicked down a door" while she hid "from his rage" in 2016, among other instances of abuse.

"Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome," she said in documents, filed in the Superior Court of California.

In his response, Dre reportedly told the court that "at no time did I ever abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety." He called the allegations a "blatant lie" — and that she never called the police during their marriage.

The 55-year-old Compton native is currently in an ICU at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angles, after suffering a ruptured aneurysm in his brain in December.

The rap producer updated fans on his condition on Jan. 5, saying he was "doing great."

Rapper-turned-actor Ice-T, born Tracy Lauren Marrow, also gave an update on Dre's condition, amid reports that the beloved music mogul suffered paralysis on one side of his body.

"Just talked to the homie @drdre," the "Law & Order SVU" star wrote on Instagram. "He's going good and hopefully he'll be home soon.. But let's keep him in our prayers for a full recovery."

There are unconfirmed reports that Dre's family members suspect "foul play" because Dre worked out in the gym several times a week and was in good health before he fell ill.

One family member suggested Dre was "poisoned" with anticoagulants, a common ingredient in rat poison that causes excessive bleeding, strokes, anemia, and death in rats.

The family member said the rat poison was possibly introduced into his food, beverages, or sprayed in the air at the gym where he worked out.

Dre's security detail has been increased while he is in the hospital.

Dre authorized $2 million in spousal support to cover Nicole's expenses through April while he recovers in rehab following his discharge from the hospital.

The court also ordered Nicole to cover her own security expenses until April 14.

Dr. Dre reportedly paid his ex-wife Nicole Young $2 million in temporary spousal support while he recovers from a brain aneurysm in a Los Angeles hospital.

According to legal documents filed today, the mega producer authorized the $2 million payment from his hospital bed.

The 55-year-old music producer suffered a brain aneurysm Monday and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars and taken directly to ICU, where he is "resting comfortably" according to his lawyer.

A hearing on the matter of the couple's divorce was heard in a courtroom on Wednesday. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, was represented by his attorneys in court.

The judge continued the divorce proceedings until a later date to give Dre time to heal from his brain injury.

According to the agreement, obtained by The Blast, Nicole will receive $2 million by this Monday, and she will be responsible to cover her living expenses and attorney fees.

The agreement, struck by lawyers Samantha Spector and Laura Wasser, says Nicole and Dre agree she will be responsible to pay her own security fees for the next few months until the parties are back in court. The judge continued the divorce hearing until April. Of course, at that time she can ask for reimbursement of expenses and negotiate a final number.

As TMZ reported, Nicole wants $2 million a month in temporary spousal support plus $5 million for attorneys fees, but a judge laughed her out of court last year.

Dr. Dre's estranged wife Nicole Young is demanding almost $2 million a month in temporary spousal support to maintain the life of caviar and champagne that she has grown accustomed to as the wife of a billionaire mogul.

Young filed court documents detailing her monthly expenses to justify the excessive amount of cash sh's asking for as their divorce battle continues.

Judy Eddy/WENN.com

According to TMZ.com, 50-year-old mother-of-two is requesting $1,936,399 per month in spousal support, in addition to $5 million to cover her legal fees.

It seems Young and her legal team have chosen to ignore the iron-clad prenuptial agreement Dre has in place.

"Dre's going to push back, arguing Nicole doesn't need anywhere close to that amount since her lifestyle hasn't changed," a source told TMZ. "Nicole, on the other hand, will argue she doesn't want to depend on Dre paying all the bills ... thus the need for temporary support."

Young filed for divorce from the rap mogul, real name Andre Romelle Young, in June after 24 years of marriage.

Since her filing, the former couple have clashed over the validity of their prenup agreement, with Young confirming that while she signed the document, Dre ripped it up in front of her as a gesture of his love for her at the time.

Unfortunately, Young didn't pick up the shredded pieces for safe keeping.

Candace Parker Shelden Williams

Women who demand equality should watch what you ask for: you just might get it. Ask WNBA star Candace Parker, who was forced to fork over $400,000 to her retired NBA ex-husband in a divorce settlement.

Parker and her ex-husband Shelden Williams, a former top NBA draft pick, agreed to a lump sum divorce settlement, according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports.

Candace married Williams back in 2008, two years after he was selected 5th overall in the 2006 NBA Draft.

Williams earned over $12 million during his 6-year career, but Parker earned more during her stint in the WNBA. So she agreed to pay Williams $400,000 in one tidy lump sum in exchange for not paying ongoing spousal support.

She can afford it. The ex-couple split the profit from the sale of their Encino, CA home which recently sold for $3.75 million.

They also agreed to co-parent their 8-year-old daughter, and they will split the cost of her education and upbringing.

That sounds like an amicable divorce between two friends.
