Kelly Clarkson’s ex Brandon Blackstock was reportedly ‘extremely jealous’ of his then-wife’s success.

‘She was the high-income earner with a wildly successful talk show, and is the star of another hit show The Voice,’ a source told Us Weekly. ‘Brandon was extremely jealous of it and made her know it.’

The source also alleged that Kelly, who makes nearly $2 million a month, was wary ‘that Brandon was just using her for her money and lifestyle’ prior to their split.

‘The marriage was really, really awful at the end. … Kelly felt that she could no longer trust Brandon. She had a lot of questions that he just couldn’t answer,’ the source told the site.

The insider alleged the couple harbored ‘tremendous resentment’ towards one another.

‘She just wasn’t willing to look the other way anymore,’ the source said.

Kelly is reported to have recently snapped up a $5.44million Colonial-style home in the Toluca Lake neighborhood in June, just a few months after finally selling her Tennessee mansion for $6.95million.

The new purchase signaled the start of a new chapter for the American Idol alum.

‘Buying a new house for the kids was also a new beginning for Kelly,’ the source said. ‘It was freedom.’

Kelly filed for divorce from Brandon in June 2020 following seven years of marriage and two children together.

The couple are currently locked in a bitter divorce battle, but Kelly recently had a win in the case as a judge upheld her prenuptial agreement.

Now the songstress wants to go ‘full steam ahead’ in selling their Montana ranch which she owns, and where Blackstock is currently residing, according to TMZ.

Sources tell the outlet that Clarkson’s attorney, famed divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, previously asked the judge for permission to sell the property, to which Blackstock’s lawyers objected, with no ruling on the prenuptial agreement at the time.

With Blackstock still living in the property, TMZ suggests Clarkson’s lawyers would have to file court documents to determine conditions in which the ranch could be sold.

MailOnline has reached out to Clarkson’s representatives for comment.

Last week TMZ reported that Clarkson quite literally celebrated after learning a judge had upheld the prenuptial agreement in her divorce battle.

The outlet reported at the time how Clarkson, 39, was on set of The Voice when she ‘let out a scream’ of joy, with fellow coaches Blake Shelton and Ariana Grande joining in.

Sources told the outlet that while Clarkson was filming the singing competition, she received an email from her lawyers sharing the good news that her prenup had been kept in place, meaning she will keep the bulk of her assets and income.
