Some people wait four years for a moment like this.

The New York Post reported on Friday that the 39-year-old singer’s estate went into contract on April 19 which was over three months after the American Idol season 1 winner slashed the price according to property records.

The property was originally listed for $8.75million in 2017 and gradually decreased throughout the four years on the market before Clarkson ended up cutting the last price by $550K from $7.5million in January amid news of her divorce. 

She had purchased the home – which features seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms –  in 2012 for $2.86million which was just a year before marrying Brandon Blackstock in 2013.

Clarkson cited irreconcilable differences as she filed for divorce last June as the former couple share two children together: six-year-old daughter River Rose and five-year-old son Remington Alexander.

The 20,000-square-foot manor home, built in 2007, is located in Hendersonville which is 25 miles from Nashville.

The enormous property sits on four scenic acres that’s situated on a cul-de-sac along Old History Lake. 

Just inside the front door, there’s an elegant double-staircase leads into the grand foyer that’s set up family entertaining.

The three-floor home also features a formal living and dining room area, a saloon-inspired bar with saddle barstools, a spacious kitchen that leads to the family room and a cozy breakfast area.

Some other perks include a movie theater, a children’s room with four built-in bunk beds and a play area.

There’s also a billiard/game room, additional seating rooms large gym, a two-level office and an elevator.

On the outside, the property has a long gated driveway that leads to a central fountain in the front of the mansion.

There’s also a sand volleyball court, a large salt water pool, English-style gardens a greenhouse, two spas and a private dock on the lake.

No doubt the possible sale of the home would be one less thing to worry about as the legal back and forth between she and her estranged husband Blackstock has been getting increasingly tense.

In January, the American Idol alum’s legal team responded to Blackstock’s denial he and his father defrauded Clarkson out of millions.

Clarkson and Blackstock have been waging a legal war against one another since October, when Kelly’s former father-in-law Narvel Blackstock filed a lawsuit alleging she still owed them $1.5 million in commissions and $4 million from her paycheck for judging The Voice.

Kelly fired back with a counter-suit, claiming that her agreement with the Blackstocks and their company Starstuck Entertainment should be voided and she should be reimbursed for all prior fees because they were providing ‘illegal services’ under California’s Talent Agencies Act for working without a license and failing to act in the ‘best interest’ of their client.

‘We stand by our allegations that Starstruck violated the Talent Agencies Act, despite their boilerplate denials, and we look forward to trying the case before the Labor Commissioner in August,’ Clarkson’s team shared in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.

Blackstock thoroughly denied Clarkson’s accusations in November filings with the California Labor Commission that emerged online Tuesday.

He disputed claims he and his father has scammed the artist by tacking exorbitant fees onto his company Starstruck Entertainment’s bills.

But Brandon’s attorneys Bryan J. Freedman and Jesse A. Kaplan argued that they are not subject to California’s Talent Agencies Act because they did not perform their work in the Golden State. 

Kelly’s lawyer Edwin McPherson believes that the American Idol alum is entitled to all of the money as well as other ‘things of value’ that Brandon was paid while acting as her agent. 

The Blackstocks’ legal representation further claimed any alleged violations that there is a one-year statute of limitations in the Talent Agencies Act, meaning even if Clarkson could prove her accusations it’s possible for his lawyers to argue she can only claim commissions paid within the year prior to her October 2020 filing.

Blackstock is asking for Clarkson’s petition to be dismissed and for her to pay his legal fees. 

The legal battle is just the latest development amid Kelly’s ongoing divorce from Brandon.

After seven years of marriage and two children together, the couple separated in summer of 2020.

Kelly married Brandon at Blackberry Farm in Tennessee in 2013 before welcoming to kids together.

Kelly has since been awarded primary physical custody of their two children.

The judge’s ruling on custody prompted Blackstock to file additional legal documents seeking $436,000-a-month in support payments from Clarkson.

He is asking for $301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support, according to TMZ.

He also requested that his soon-to-be ex-wife cover $2 million in legal fees.
