It’s no secret Kelly Clarkson is one of the most talented singers in the game — and as it turns out, her net worth reflects just that. According to Celebrity Net Worth, The Voice coach is worth an estimated $45 million! That’s certainly enough dough to make anyone want to hit those high notes!
It’s unclear how filing for divorce from Brandon Blackstock, her husband of nearly seven years in June, will affect Kelly’s bank account. But since she’s reeling in the big bucks from The Voice, The Kelly Clarkson Show and her eight studio albums, we think Kelly will be just fine.
She has been a coach on the beloved singing competition from season 14 to season 17 and Radar Online reported the singer is being paid about $14 million per season!
Why so much? Well, the new American Idol began airing the same year she joined The Voice and there was allegedly a bidding war for which show would get her on the cast. The Voice won out, so producers offered her the second-largest salary ever for it. Speaking of American Idol, Kelly was the first winner of the series and she has since gone on to put out eight studio albums.
In addition, the mother of two finished her 9th headlining concert tour — the Meaning of Life Tour — in the spring of 2019. She accumulated over $17.5 million in the box office for her 28-date tour from January to March of that year. Kelly also raked in a number of accolades to solidify her status (and pay rate) as a pop legend, including three Grammy Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, four American Music Awards, and two Academy of Country Music Awards. Not too shabby, huh?
More recently, however, the music sensation premiered her very own TV series, The Kelly Clarkson Show, on Monday, September 9! “I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” she said of the hour-long eponymous show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!”
The series took over Steve Harvey‘s show Steve’s time slot and acts as a lead-in to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Kelly quickly became one of talk TV’s biggest (and most beloved) personalities, and we can’t wait to see what she does next.
