Kelly Clarkson Ordered to Pay Brandon Blackstock Nearly $200K a Month in Spousal and Child Support

According to court documents obtained by People on Tuesday, July 27, a Los Angeles County Court has ruled that Kelly Clarkson, 39, is required to pay her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock, 44, $150,000 per month in spousal support. In addition to that sum, Clarkson must pay the talent manager $45,601 per month in child support to “benefit” their children, River, 7, and Remington, 5.

In total, the “Miss Independent” singer, who earns $1.9 million per month in income, must pay Blackstock $195,601 a month as the two continue their divorce battle. The settlement agreement between the two is still being worked out. And if that wasn’t enough, Clarkson is also required to pay her ex-husband’s attorney fees ($1.25 million so far).

Blackstock initially wanted more than double that amount, requesting that Clarkson pay him $436,000 per month ($301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support), according to a previous source for People.

Documents also revealed that Brandon plans to leave the entertainment industry and pursue work as a rancher, noting he “made a very deliberate choice to change his life and become a rancher full-time.”

Amazon has given “Anansi Boys” series a 6 episode order, and they plan to shoot in Scotland later this year.

Another NG book I never read, but I did really enjoy Good Omens, and I'll probably like this too. I just started Da 5 Bloods yesterday.

Netflix Moves 'Blonde' to 2022

  • Netflix has moved the Andrew Dominik film Blonde to an unspecified date in 2022.

  • The film, a fictionalized telling of Marilyn Monroe's life starring Ana de Armas, was widely expected to be an awards contender, but didn't appear on any of the upcoming festival lineups. Cannes had invited Netflix to premiere the film out of competition, but Netflix declined.

  • The director has stated in past interviews that the film was very light on dialogue, potentially making it more difficult to market than other films.

  • Netflix has a ton of other awards-friendly releases coming this fall, including Don't Look Up, The Power of the Dog, Passing, and Tick, Tick... Boom.

South Park creators are trying to buy Casa Bonita

The company that owns the restaurant, Summit Family Restaurants, filed for Ch. 11 bankruptcy in April. The bankruptcy is what keeps the sale in limbo.

Casa Bonita is in Colorado and a beloved childhood location for the South Park creators. The restaurant has been featured on the South Park as well. If Parker and Stone work a deal out, they're going to make "everything right" and some changes, starting with the food.

Of course, there will be some South Park IP which Parker says is just sitting there.

The restaurant has been closed since 2020 due to the pandemic.

Lucy Lawless reacts to new Xena action figures + ponders on reboot

-Xena The Warrior Princess is getting Super 7 action figures (is this an honor? idk) and Lucy is promoting the Xena/Gabby duo.

-She also wonders how no one can break the code to a Xena reboot.

-NBC attempted to reboot the beloved and iconic series in 2016 but the network ultimately passed on the script which saw Hercules as the big bad and Xena one of his initial generals instead of the one to help Xena to her redemption.

Tokyo Olympics reporter goes viral after discovering 7-eleven as professing its love to it

CBC news and Olympics reporter Devin Heroux, while covering the Tokyo edition of the games, became viral by turning into a convert of the convenience store. The reporter was delighted to find out that his hotel had an 7-Eleven attached to it, which made Heroux to document his visits to 7-Eleven on Twitter, where he’s now been inundated with remarks of jealousy, tips, and surprise from those who couldn’t be in Tokyo this summer, as well as gratitude from Japanese locals.

Heroux said “the place is bursting with everything you could want and more, the sandwich selection is better than most grocery stores in Toronto — the egg salad sandwiches might be the best I’ve had. Pocky for dessert. Edamame chips for snacks. And my favourite sports drink, Pocari Sweat…” in a piece he wrote for CBC. Japanese convenience stores in Japan are known for the wide selection of high quality food items, unlike their counterparts in other parts of the world.

His tweets documenting his snacks hauls hit the Japanese social media and has since been featured in many Japanese outlets and users, being appreciative of the Canadian’s love for what many Japanese people take for granted. “My feed is now filled with people from Japan giving me suggestions and things to try”, said the 7-Eleven fan.

If he were to go to don Quixote, he’d lose his mind for sure
