Kelly Clarkson has been awarded primary custody of her children amid her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

According to People magazine, a Los Angeles County judge has ruled that the Stronger singer, 38, will have primary custody of their children, daughter River Rose, six, and four-year-old son Remington Alexander.

‘The Court finds that under the circumstances present in this case, the interest in providing stability and continuity for the minor children weighs in favor of Petitioner having primary custody,’ the court document read, according to the publication.

The magazine claims the document stated ‘the level of conflict between the parents has increased. The parties have a difficult time co-parenting due to issues of trust between them.’

The Voice judge will allow her ex – who plans to live in Montana while he works as a music manager – to visit their children in Clarkson’s Woodvale residence in Los Angeles.

Though the former couple will share joint physical and legal custody, Clarkson will have primary physical custody in Los Angeles.

It was also stated that Blackstock will FaceTime with River and Remy every day ‘at a mutually agreed upon time’ as well.

Clarkson and her husband surprised fans earlier this year when they announced their decision to split.

The pair tied the knot in 2013 and were married for nearly six years.

Brandon also has children from his first marriage to Melissa Ashworth and is father to daughter Savannah, 17, and son Seth, 13.
