PHOTOS: See Kelly Clarkson’s New Post-Divorce Mansion
Toward the end of June, the Los Angeles Times reported that “The Voice” judge bought a $5.445 million Colonial-style home in Toluca Lake. The purchase came on the heels of Clarkson selling her Tennessee “mega-mansion” for $6.3 million, the outlet said.
Images of Clarkson’s new home are in the video below.
The Los Angeles Times reported, “Her latest home is a bit smaller at 5,000 square feet but offers plenty of exterior space with a one-acre lot. A brick motor court sets a stately tone in front, and out back, there’s an amenity-loaded yard with a swimming pool, spa, tennis court, guesthouse and gazebo.”
Taste of Country revealed that it took Clarkson four years to sell her Nashville home — the 20,121-square-foot property came equipped with 11 bathrooms and 7 bedrooms.

Clarkson Also Has a New Time Slot for Her Show
As reported by TMZ, Clarkson’s Toluca Lake purchase comes just after news surfaced that “The Kelly Clarkson Show” would take over the time slot currently occupied by The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“It seems Kelly’s planting some deep roots in L.A. on the heels of the announcement that ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ will take over the time slot currently held by Ellen DeGeneres after the 19th season of her show concludes,” TMZ said.
In May, DeGeneres delivered a four-minute speech about the end of her show, seen above, stating, “Two years ago, I signed a deal for three more years and I always knew in my heart that season 19 would be my last. Nineteen is a great number. First of all, the 19th amendment gave women the right to vote. This may be controversial, but I believe women should be allowed to vote. I said it. … Also, on the periodic table, 19 is the atomic number for potassium.”
Clarkson Is Paying Her Ex $200,000 a Month
In June 2020, Today reported that Clarkson had filed for divorce from her husband after seven years together. For years, Blackstock worked as Clarkson’s talent manager.
According to an August 2021 Hollywood Life post, Clarkson is paying her ex, Brandon Blackstock, roughly $200,000 a month in combined spousal and child support.
Family law attorney Sabrina Shaheen Cronin told Hollywood Life, “This could seemingly be a ‘win’ for Kelly. Blackstock originally filed a request for spousal support of $301,000 per month as well as his original demand of $135,000 in child support.”
According to Hollywood Life, the amount paid is based on both parents’ incomes, taxes, and the “percentage of time each parent has with their kids.”
In a story posted on August 31, Us Weekly characterized Clarkson’s divorce from Blackstock as “messy” and referenced what Clarkson had previously told Hoda Kotb on “The Today Show.”
Per Us Weekly, Clarkson said, “You see yourself growing old with someone and then life has a different path. It’s so hard on everyone, and you know me, I’m really open. I try to be open and share. … We all go through things. But at the same time, we have four kids total with each other. That’s a lot of hearts involved, and you just have to be really careful. … We’re in the public eye so that’s hard too, to try and be truthful but also keep your privacy.”
