Divorce can be tricky and is never easy. Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock can testify to that. After announcing their divorce, the long process of dividing the assets and properties begins and for the this ex-couple, a ranch became a battleground. So it was up to a judge to decide the fate. The court has ruled that Kelly is the sole owner of the Montana ranch property valued at $10.4 million dollars, rejecting Brandon’s position that the ranch was martial property and should be shared equally by both. The judge saw it differently and ruled that their premarital agreement gives the ownership to Kelly and Kelly alone. And here is where it gets dicey. Brandon has been living at the ranch full time sense the split. It has been his home and his place of business. Prior to the judgement, Kelly wanted to sell the ranch, despite Brandon living there. claiming it a financial burden. The cost of maintaining the ranch as been estimated at $81,000. a month. Yep, that can add up fast. For her part, Kelly is required to pay nearly $200,000 per month to Brandon in spousal and child support. He is responsible for “100% of the cost” of transporting their two children (River, 7, and Remington, 5) to and from Montana. He has a 25 percent custodial timeshare. So, does she charge him rent? Does she evict him and sell? The choice is completely hers, because she now officially owns the Montana ranch lock, stock and barrel, as they say. But stay tuned for more drama. Will Brandon move out? Will he try to stay? Divorce is never easy.

    I was very sorry to hear of their break up, but we all knew it would get nasty at some point. Doesn’t it usually? Guess he will have to find another million dollar place to live. Hopefully, they can co-parent their 2 kids in a good way.

    Let’s hope they can pull it together and become friends for the sake of the children. Co-parenting is hard, but can be done successfully if both parties put the kids first. I was shocked when this happened, but not as shocked as when Narvel, Brandon’s Dad and Reba broke up. I wish them good luck.

    TMZ is reporting that Brandon is refusing to leave the Ranch and that Kelly is going to be forced to remove him. This is far from over and looks like it will probably get very ugly.

    Sell the ranch in Montana and everybody moves on. This marriage is done. Put a fork in it.

    I guess it was just too much to believe that Brandon and Kelly would part ways peacefully and find some one new who would make them happy. I am not a Kelly Clarkson fan — I find her so annoying on The Voice and even more annoying on her talk show—and I don’t know Brandon, but I feel sorry for the 2 kids.
