Kelly Clarkson has won primary custody of her two children, River, 6, and Remy, 4, whom she shares with her ex, Brandon Blackstock, according to multiple reports.
The judge said in a statement, "The court finds that the minor children are not now and have not been residents of Montana and that California is their home state."
Clarkson plans to stay in Los Angeles with her kids while Blackstock plans to live primarily in Montana according to court documents obtained by ET.
According to the court documents, Blackstock would get the kids the first, third and fifth weekend of every month. He will have to visit them in Los Angeles for the first and fifth weekends.
ET reports that the former couple has been struggling to come to a mutual agreement about their children amid their divorce.
"The level of conflict between the parents has increased," per a court document. “The parties have a difficult time co-parenting due to issues of trust between them."

“Brandon has been equally unreasonable in his requests for child and spousal support, as well as attorney fees. Kelly’s offered to pay for all the kids’ expenses, but Brandon seems to think he is entitled to and needs $301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support per month.”
