Kelly Clarkson's Ex-Husband Refusing to Leave Their Montana Home Appears to Have Paid OffBrandon Blackstock's refusal to leave the Montana home he shared with Kelly Clarkson was reportedly part of a strategic legal move. Lets Go Brandon! I thought the judge said if he stayed on the ranch he had to pay for maintenance? Pretty sad when he says he can't afford to buy a house. Someone needs to let him know there are $200,000 houses and even less than that. He just wants a mansion because that's what he's used to. Life can change in an instant Brandon, you may have to learn to live differently than what you're used to and not try to squeeze someone else.

Updated: Jan. 25, 2022, 10:19 a.m. | Published: Jan. 25, 2022, 10:19 a.m. By A former police officer in a Bergen County borough, who claimed he was bullied by an allegedly bad lieutenant, has settled his lawsuit for $120,000, according to court documents. Samuel Kim, who worked for the Palisades Park Police Department, claimed in a July 2021 lawsuit that his supervisor made his life a nightmare by shouting at him in public, bullying him in the locker room and assaulting him with chopsticks. Court papers allege the lieutenant grew angry with his subordinate after Kim refused to “fix” a ticket as a favor for a friend of the supervisor, who was a police officer from New York City. The NYPD officer had asked for help in May 2018 disposing of a ticket he had received in the borough, according to the suit. But Kim responded that to interfere with a summons would be considered abuse of authority or official misconduct, the suit states. Tensions quickly mounted between Kim and the lieutenant and reached a breaking point when the supervisor allegedly picked up a set of chopsticks and beat Kim on the head while yelling “loud invectives and terrorizations,” the lawsuit had claimed. The settlement was signed on Dec. 17, 2021, with a 3-0 vote by members of the borough council. Two of the six council members recused themselves and one abstained from voting, public records show. The agreement states that the $120,000, made payable to Kim and his attorneys, is for “personal physical injuries and/or physical sickness such as headaches, nausea, digestive issues, insomnia, etc.” But the borough makes no admissions as to liability or damages, or any wrongdoing or violations of local, state or federal laws, the settlement states. In exchange for the settlement amount, Kim agrees not to pursue further legal action against the borough or the lieutenant, the agreement states. Borough officials and the lieutenant named in the lawsuit did not immediately respond on Tuesday to requests for comment. Kim’s attorney, Patrick Toscano of Caldwell, said Kim now works for the Ho-Ho-Kus Police Department, “where his talents have been well-received and profoundly appreciated. “The Palisades Park Police Department lost a gifted, first-rate officer,” Toscano said, adding that Kim is satisfied with the settlement amount.
