KELLY Clarkson stands by the lawsuit she filed saying her estranged husband, Brandon Blackstock, allegedly owes her millions after he denied ALL claims.
The Voice coach is not backing down in the couple’s nasty divorce battle after the father of her two children shut down any accusation made in the court documents.
One day after the music manager denied he owed his wife any money, Kelly, 38, is continuing to back what is said in the lawsuit.
The singer’s attorney, Ed McPherson, said in a statement to ET: “We stand by our allegations that Starstruck violated the Talent Agencies Act, despite their boilerplate denials.
“And we look forward to trying the case before the Labor Commissioner in August.”
Brandon, 44, reportedly filed documents with the California Labor Commission in November of 2020, denying Kelly's claims that he charged her outrageous fees under their contract as performer and manager.
Yesterday, Us Weekly uncovered the news that the father of four has denied all of his ex-wife's claims of fraudulent action, and says he never stole millions from her career.
The documents state that the mother of his children is not entitled to any money that he, his father, or their management company produced while managing her professional career over the past 13 years.
In December, their bitter split has heated up with the singer’s latest explosive allegations against her baby daddy – who also served as her personal manager for years.
According to legal documents filed with the California Labor Commission and first obtained by OK!, Brandon “defrauded Kelly by charging exorbitant fees.”
Now, the pop star allegedly wants the earnings she feels is rightfully hers back in the pair’s ongoing divorce war.
The recently uncovered documents were filed in October – one month after her ex-father-in-law, Narvel Blackstock, and his Starstruck Management, claimed Kelly owed them $1.4million and potentially millions more from her earnings on The Voice.
In the legal papers, Kelly also alleged Brandon and his dad Narvel were a “fraudulent and subterfuge device” for her managers to perform “illegal services” as agents – despite the pair being unlicensed in the state of California – where their family moved last year.
She and her attorney, Edwin McPherson, are now demanding a large chunk of money from the firm due to “wrongful acts and conduct” from Starstruck and the Blackstocks.
The Stronger songstress has been represented by the management team for 13 years and over the course of that time, has exponentially grown her reported $45 million fortune.
In 2019, Kelly's career received a massive boost when she scored her own talk show which went on to become a ratings hit.
Brandon – who represented her through the deal – moved with his wife and their kids from Nashville to Los Angeles last year so she could juggle both her new daytime series and her gig as a coach on The Voice.
As The Sun previously reported, Starstruck Management Group is suing Kelly for “refusing” to pay millions they claim they’re owed.
However, Kelly previously filed a petition with the California Labor Commission, which sought an order “declaring that the alleged agreement be declared void,” according to documents obtained The Blast.
The lawsuit remains ongoing as the pop star insists she doesn’t owe a dime.
The Grammy winner’s court chaos also comes as Kelly deals with her divorce, which she filed in June due to "irreconcilable differences."
She also asked for joint physical and legal custody of their children, daughter River Rose, five, and son Remington Alexander, four.
Brandon, 43, has two kids from a previous marriage.
