Kelly Clarkson was sued by her ex-father-in-law’s management company.
Starstruck Management Group filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court in Los Angeles on Tuesday, claiming that the singer owes her longtime managers a $ 1.4 million commission.
Clarkson got married Brandon Blackstock, son of the owner of Starstruck Narvel Blackstock, in 2013 and filed for divorce in June 2020. The couple shared a daughter Blackstock river rose, 6 and son Remington Alexander Blackstock, 4.
The case received by E! News accuses her of violating an oral agreement because “she decided to stop paying Starstruck what was due under the contract.”
The 38-year-old contractor started with the Nashville-based company in 2007 and allegedly agreed to pay an “industry standard” commission of 15 percent of her gross profits, which includes “future profits” from projects that it started while it was still at Starstruck.
The statement said Clarkson had paid commissions throughout her career until recently. In 2020, she claims to owe about $ 3.36 in commissions, but has so far paid only $ 1.92 million. The $ 1.44 million still owed is probably from her work on The voice and The Kelly Clarkson Show.
