Kelly Clarkson has dropped another bombshell in her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. She’s accusing her ex and his manager dad of fraud, claiming the drained millions from her fortune.
Kelly Clarkson has made millions of dollars during her wildly successful career. But in new papers related to her divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock, she claims that he and his dad Narvel Blackstock‘s Starstruck Management company defrauded her out of a good chunk of her fortune, by among other things performing “illegal services” including acting as agents without being licensed to do so in the state of California. The daytime talk show host just filed the documents with the California Labor Commission, in paperwork obtained by HollywoodLife.com.
Kelly had been managed by Narvel and Brandon’s company for 13 years — beginning in 2007 — she now wants all the money back that was allegedly taken from her. She also alleges that Brandon and Narvel defrauded her by “demanding unconscionable fees and compensation” from Kelly for “illegal services.” The “Stronger” singer also claims that they “acted in conflict of interest” with her best interests.
Brandon’s lawyer Bryan J. Freedman tells HollywoodLife.com in a statement that: “The labor petition conveniently ignores the fact that Kelly had her own licensed talent agency CAA at all times. While Starstruck Management Group provided talent management services on her behalf, it did so at all times that CAA was her agency of record. It is 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 her ongoing custody and divorce proceedings.” Starstruck sued Kelly in September, claiming she owed them $1.4 mil in commissions.
