Six months after filing for divorce from Brandon Blackstock, Clarkson has filed a legal document against her husband Brandon Blackstock saying he defrauded her out of millions of dollars.
After getting separated from Brandon Blackstock, Kelly is there with a new battle. The 38-year-old singer filed court documents with California Labor Commission that alleges Blackstock her husband for 7 years and his company has defrauded her out of large sums of cash by charging excessive fees, as per a report from TMZ and Us Weekly.
As per official papers, the first-ever American Idol winner says that her agreement with the management company was a “fraudulent and subterfuge device” that allowed her managers to perform “Illegal services” as agents.
The American Idol judge claimed that Blackstock, who also worked as her manager and Balckstock’s father Narvel Blackstock, who runs Starstruck, never obtained her proper licensure to operate as talent agent, as per reports from Us Weekly.
Since the Grammy-winning artist wants to recoup all the money she paid to the company after her 13 years in which they acted as her agent. We cant presume the exact amount but Clarkson has been one of the most successful and one of the higher-earning singers of the past decade or so hence the commissions she paid to her management team during this period must be well into a big amount.
Additionally looking at the flip side, Clarkson in later September was sued by Brandon’s company in September, Starstuck Management, claiming she actually owed the company $1.4 mil in commissions.
The superstar suing a response claimed Starstruck had violated the Calofornia Labor code.
Attorney for the company said to TMZ
“ Its unfortunate that Kelly is again attempting to avoid paying commissions that are due and owing to Starstruck to try and achieve some perceived advantage in the ongoing custody and divorce proceedings”
