Kelly Clarkson looked busy while spotted arriving for work at the Universal Studios lot on Tuesday.
Looking low-key in black athleisure, the American Idol champion quickly walked from her car to set.
It was the first time the star, who is valued at around $49million, had been since since news she’s been paying ex Brandon Blackstock nearly $200k-per-month to for spousal and child support since April.
Legal docs in Kelly’s divorce battle also revealed she rakes in $1,583,617 a month.

As she dipped out of the car she looked at her phone, checking on incoming messages.
Though the outfit appear low-key Kelly had her celebrity status on display with designer pieces like a fuzzy Louis Vuitton jacket and APL running shoes.
New documents made it clear she has the money to spend, putting her monthly income at just over $1.5million.
The star’s money comes from her daytime chat show as well as her coaching role on The Voice, which reportedly earns her a hefty $14million per season.
She also has several real estate holdings, including a $3million mansion in Tennessee, a $2million Montana cabin, and an $8.5million home in Encino, CA.
Two of the three homes are in the process of being sold as Kelly and Brandon try to split their assets amid the divorce.
Her Encino, California, home is currently on the market for about $9million and the Tennessee mansion is listed for $6.95million.

Yesterday it was revealed that the Stronger songstress has been shelling out six-figures-a-month on support for her ex-husband/ex-manager.
The order additionally requires her to pay $1.25million to cover Brandon’s attorney fees incurred from the divorce.
The documents also reveal that Blackstock has decided to change careers, leaving behind the entertainment business to pursue ranching.
The filings say Blackstock ‘made a very deliberate choice to change his life and become a rancher full-time.’
According to the docs, he plans to earn income sponsoring rodeos and tending to his land and livestock.
Blackstock’s side claims he is out of the music business, stating he ‘spends minimal time regarding his representation of his remaining client, Blake Shelton.’

Earlier this month Clarkson asked for the courts to legally declare her single, over one year after she initially filed for divorce in June 2020.
To make matters worse, she had previously asked the court to terminate Blackstock’s ability to seek spousal support, and for the couple’s prenuptial agreement to be ‘enforced’ which could outline a custody arrangement.
The singer has sold a staggering 25 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide in her career, and currently has her own talk-show.
Clarkson first began dating Blackstock – a country music manager – back in 2011 and married him in 2013. Blackstock also shares his 13-year-old son Seth and 17-year-old daughter Savannah with his ex-wife Melissa Ashworth.
Meanwhile, the Piece By Piece hitmaker recently sparked speculation she and Blackstock could have been set to have a third child, as she confessed she had ‘baby fever’ after chatting to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
During their chat, in which Gordon’s 13-month-old son Oscar appeared, Clarkson said: ‘Oh my gosh! Do not do this to me. I so want another child, and my husband is like, ‘No! We have four!’

‘You get baby fever when you see them and you’re like, ‘Oh, I miss the chubby little legs and the little face.’
The desire to have another baby came as a surprise to Clarkson’s fans, as she has previously been vocal about her decision to stop having children.
She even had her tubes tied to prevent her from getting pregnant for a third time, whilst Blackstock has also undergone a medical procedure to ensure he is no longer capable of having kids.
In 2017, Kelly said: ‘Oh God, those tubes are gone! That’s blasphemy. We don’t even speak of it. We’re both fixed in our own ways, yet still we’ll probably get pregnant again somehow.
‘I always feel bad because I have friends who have a hard time getting pregnant and I’m just like guys, I have the worst pregnancies ever, it can’t happen again!’
Kids: Kelly is asking for joint legal and physical custody of her two children River, five, and Remington, four, in her divorce from Brandon after seven years of marriage.
