Kelly Clarkson is now required to pay her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock nearly $200,000 per month in spousal and child support.

A Los Angeles County judge handed down the order Tuesday that Clarkson give Blackstock $150,000 per month in spousal support, as well as $45,601 per month in child support, PEOPLE has learned.

The arrangement means that Blackstock, 43, will receive $195,601 in total from Clarkson each month, or roughly $2.4 million per year. The order also requires the singer to pay $1.25 million towards her estranged husband's attorney fees and costs for their ongoing divorce.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Blackstock had been aiming for more than double the amount in support, requesting that Clarkson pay him $436,000 per month ($301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support).

Clarkson is being represented by celebrity attorney Laura Wasser, who recently launched It's Over Easy. The service helps streamline the divorce process for individuals who might not be able to obtain her services otherwise.

larkson filed for divorce in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.

Earlier this month, Clarkson appealed for a judge to officially sign off on her divorce, leaving other arrangements such as spousal and child support for a later date.

In a declaration to the court obtained by PEOPLE, Clarkson reasoned that she and Blackstock "both deserve the opportunity to build a new life."

Back in November, an L.A. County judge granted Clarkson primary physical custody of their children River Rose, 7, and Remington Alexander, 5.

A source close to the family told PEOPLE at the time that Clarkson is "pleased" by the custody ruling and that her priority is to protect her children.

"As Kelly has said, her first priority in all of this is to take care of the kids and all the hearts that are involved in this divorce," a second source said. "It's been a hard time for everyone, but Kelly's pleased with the court's ruling regarding custody."

"Divorce is hard and it gets tense for most couples going through it. But Kelly's primary focus is on doing the best she can to protect the kids," the source added. "In this case, she had to fight for them since Brandon and his attorneys were making unreasonable requests."

Children need to be in an environment where there isn't a dramatic difference between the parent's lifestyles, especially where the custody is shared. This is what Gabriel Aubrey's lawyers used in his divorce against Halle Berry, and the judge agreed. Mr Aubrey is only getting $17k per month from Ms Berry. Halle should be overjoyed - it could have been far worse.

they said, be careful what you wish for. and women stuck with their Equality carp because they were getting the benefits of that equality.

but now since most women are in schools and college's and earning more money than most men and they demand men to make as much or more than them, they complain that they can't find a good man and now they get married to these men and when a divorce happens and because the women are earning more than the men, the women now have to pay for alimony because they earn more than the men lol.

it's poetic justice at it's finest.

now we are getting the news of women being drafted into the military lol, the gifts just keep coming and i'm laughing the entire time.

i no longer care for relationshits or any of that shit, and women will always complain about it, when before they got their way, but now the shoe is on the other foot and they need to pay for their choices.

was equality worth it ladies ?
