Kelly Clarkson's ex-husband Brandon Blackstock has been ordered to pay her $2.6 million (£2 million).

Blackstock has been ordered to return the money he allegedly overcharged the American Idol alum while employed as her manager, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

According to the outlet, a California labour commissioner ruled Blackstock, 46, had overcharged Clarkson, 41, while unlawfully booking her jobs, including her role as a judge on The Voice, while he was employed as her manager. According to the documents, the labour commissioner pointed out that is the job of an agent to secure roles for talent, rather than the manager.

The commissions that Blackstock has been ordered to return to his ex-wife include the $1.98 million (£1.56 million) that he earned for booking her on The Voice.

According to TMZ, Brandon stated that he would be appealing the decision.

In December 2020, the Grammy winner claimed that Blackstock had acted fraudulently while employed as her manager, however, he denied her allegations.

Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after nearly seven years of marriage. The pair share two children, River, nine, and Remington, seven.

Clarkson was awarded primary custody of the kids in March 2022. The singer pays Blackstock $45,000 (£36,000) a month in child support.
