Kelly Clarkson has agreed to give a five percent share of her Montana ranch to ex Brandon Blackstock after months of battling over the property.

Just weeks after attempting to evict the 45-year-old talent manager from the residence, the talk show host, 39, forked over a sliver of the sprawling  abode. 

His slice of the ranch, which is valued for a whopping $17,750,000, is worth $908,800.

In December, Clarkson's attempt to evict her ex-husband from her ranch was blocked by a US judge. 

The former American Idol winner is the sole owner of Vintage Valley Ranch in Montana, but is currently unable to utilize the property while Blackstock - her former manager - occupies it.

The ranch is said to cost $81K per month to maintain, and the 39-year-old pop powerhouse pays her 45-year-old ex a total $195,601 per month in child/spousal support.

'The judge ruled in his favor, but the order hasn't been formally signed off on,' a source told Us Weekly on Monday.

'He has been living in it and said he doesn't have the financial means to afford to purchase a residence of his own at this time, citing the unresolved financial aspect of their divorce.'

'If Blackstock fails to keep up with the maintenance payments associated with the property, Clarkson can file a motion to sell the property,' an insider noted.

Vintage Valley Ranch was partially the reason for the acrimonious end of the Texans' seven-year marriage.

'Being in quarantine at the ranch together heightened their problems to the point of no return,' the source added.

Clarkson and Blackstock will face off in court in February and June in an attempt to finalize the Montana property situation.

The three-time Grammy winner - who earns $1.9M/month - has primary custody of their five-year-old son Remington Alexander and seven-year-old daughter River Rose.

Aspiring rancher and rodeo sponsor Blackstock - who earns a comparatively humble $10K/month - also fathered daughter Savannah, 19; and son Seth, 15; from his 11-year marriage to Melissa Ashworth.
