Kelly Clarkson's Montana home has been awarded to her during her divorce proceedings.

Her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock claimed that the ranch was "marital property" — but the judge says the home falls within the former couple's prenup. Clarkson bought it with her own money.

Blackstock says that any income earned during the seven years he and Clarkson were married should be split between them.

"The Court further finds that the Montana Ranch and the other two Montana properties are not titled in both of the Parties' names either as joint tenants with right of survivorship or as tenants by the entireties, as required under the PMA to create marital property," the documents state. "The Court therefore rejects Respondent's [Blackstock's] position that the Montana Ranch and other Montana properties are marital property owned 50/50 by the Parties."

Kelly has already been ordered to pay Blackstock, her former manager, $200,000 a month in spousal and child support. He had initially requested $436,000 a month.
