Kelly Clarkson awarded custody of kids by Los Angeles County judge amid Brandon Blackstock divorce

Kelly Clarkson has been handed over the primal physical custody of her two kids,  daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4 after divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock. 

The decision was ruled in favour of Clarkson by a Los Angeles County judge  who explained, "The Court finds that under the circumstances present in this case, the interest in providing stability and continuity for the minor children weighs in favour of Petitioner having primary custody," read the court document.

The document added that "the level of conflict between the parents has increased. The parties have a difficult time co-parenting due to issues of trust between them."

Despite having sole custody, the singer will allow her former husband Blackstock to meet their kids in the LA area at Clarkson's Woodvale residence.

Previous court documents stated that the kids will be allowed to spend Thanksgiving with their dad and the Christmas with Clarkson.

Clarkson sought divorce from husband Blackstock in June after being married for seven years.

They got engaged in December 2012 and were married in October 2013.
