Former couple Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock are knee-deep in a legal battle about their divorce proceedings. The talent manager is reportedly seeking a hefty sum for spousal and child support.

According to reports by People Magazine, Blackstock wants $436,000 in monthly spousal and child support after Clarkson was granted primary physical custody of their two kids, Rose River and Remington, by an L. A County judge.

A source close to the couple confirmed that the divorce proceedings haven't been without drama, with Blackstock making things difficult with his unrealistic demands for his attorney fees alongside child and spousal payments. The insider said:

"Kelly's offered to pay for all the kids' expenses, but Brandon seems to think he is entitled to and needs $301K in spousal support and $135K in child support per month."

The source mentioned that the 43-year-old has already requested about $2 million with seven attorneys representing him. If his child and spousal support request comes through, Blackstock will earn a whopping $5.2 million annually.

Shortly before Blackstock's monetary request, court documents showed that Clarkson and Blackstock would share joint physical and legal custody of their children, but the show host is primarily in charge of them.

The judge ruled in the "American Idol" alum's favor citing that the kids' interests as regards their stability and continuity given that she and Blackstock have been struggling with co-parenting for a few months.

Blackstock would be allowed to visit his kids in Clarkson's Woodvale residence and spend important holidays this year, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Amid the divorce proceedings and Blackstock's overwhelming request, Clarkson remains positive and content because the custody ruling favored her.

According to an insider, the kids are the singer's priority as she wants to protect them at all costs. The 38-year-old allegedly had to put up an intense fight to win primary custody as Blackstock and his attorney made unrealistic demands.

He wanted the kids to reside in Montana with him or travel back and forth between his place and their mother's. In September, Clarkson opened up about how she has been faring amid the divorce, describing her life as "a bit of a dumpster."

The "Since U Been Gone" singer got candid about how things have been difficult in the past months, explaining that she has had to rely on friends or loved ones who have gone to a divorce.

She has also found solace in music as she has poured out her emotions into her upcoming album. Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June after nearly seven years of marriage.

While Blackstock served as her manager, the singer was a doting stepmother to his two kids, Savannah and Seth, from his previous marriage.
