The order was issued as the couple argue over property, children and monthly income.

In the documentation, it was revealed that Kelly earns over $1.5 million monthly. And beginning on April 1, Kelly has been required to pay Brandon $150,000 monthly in spousal support, and will “pay child support to (Brandon) for the benefit of the minor children, River Rose Blackstock, born June 12, 2014, and Remington Alexander Blackstock, born April 12, 2016, in the amount of $45,601 per month.”

According to the order, Kelly is also required to pay $1.25 million in Brandon’s attorney fees and professional costs for their ongoing divorce.

The news comes as she filed to declare herself legally single amid the divorce proceedings.
