The former 'American Idol' contestant accuses her former husband Brandon Blackstock of unlawfully securing numerous deals for her and then taking the fees himself.

AceShowbiz - Brandon Blackstock has been required to pay more than $2 million to Kelly Clarkson. A California labour commissioner has determined that Brandon, 46, must pay $2,641,374 to his ex-wife after he unlawfully procured deals that should've been handled by a talent agent.

"Under the Talent Agencies Act (TAA), a manager, like any person without a talent agency license, cannot procure or attempt to procure employment for artists," the ruling - which has been obtained by PEOPLE - reads.

In a lawsuit filed against her ex-husband, the 41-year-old pop star claimed that he secured her contracts with "The Voice", "The Kelly Clarkson Show", Norwegian Cruise Line, Wayfair and the Billboard Music Awards, and then took the fees himself.

Brandon's legal team has already filed to appeal the ruling.

Meanwhile, Kelly previously revealed that her kids continue to "dream" that she'll reunite with her ex-husband. The singer - who was married to Brandon between 2013 and 2021 - admitted that her children continue to hope for a reconciliation.

Kelly - who has River, nine, and Remington, seven, with her ex-husband - told the "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast, "Your kids will still have a hard time. It doesn't matter if you stay, it doesn't matter if you go, I am still having conversations [with my kids] three years later."

"My kids just came back from my ex and any time there's mention of maybe him being with somebody else ... they are just really adamant about keeping that dream alive that we might still be together one day."

Despite this, Kelly believes she's actually become a better mom since their split. She said, "I'm a far better mother because when you're honest with yourself, you're able to be honest with others."
