Kelly Clarkson has just won a big victory in her divorce case … a judge has just given her primary custody of two children in Los Angeles.
Kelly and the estranged man Brandon Blackstock fought for custody of a 6-year-old child River and 4 years of age Remy. Brandon apparently decided he wanted to live on their ranch in Montana, and he wanted to take care of the children together, where they could be transported back and forth between Los Angeles, where Kelly lives, and Montana.
This queen Water Laura, who repeats to Kelly, says her client believed Brandon’s position would be harmful to the children, and the judge agreed, saying, “The court found that the minor children are not currently residents of Montana and that California is their home state.”
The judge gave Kelly and Brandon joint physical and legal custody, but the result is that Kelly will have children most of the time. The judge ruled that Kelly has primary child custody in Los Angeles, and Brandon receives children on the 1st, 3rd and 5th weekends of each month. The 1st and 5th weekends Brandon has to be in Los Angeles to spend time with the kids. As for the 3 weekend months … the kids would go to Montana.
Although it is technical joint physical care, Kelly will obviously get the children the lion’s share of time, that’s what she wanted.
The order also states that neither Kelly nor Brandon can talk to the children about another. The order also states that neither parent can drink booze or weeds for 8 hours by car with children inside.
