Brandon Blackstock has fired back at estranged wife Kelly Clarkson’s claims that he defrauded her out of millions of dollars over the course of her career.
The talent agent, 44, filed documents with the California Labor Commission in November in response to Clarkson’s October filing, in which she claimed Blackstock acted fraudulently as her manager.
In the documents, obtained by Us Weekly, Blackstock denied any wrongdoing and claimed the “Miss Independent” singer, 38, isn’t entitled to any money that he, his father Narvel, or their management company, Starstruck Entertainment, earned over the past 13 years. Blackstock’s attorneys argued that Starstruck Entertainment company are not subject to the Talent Agencies Act because they did not perform their duties in California.
Blackstock’s attorneys further argued that there is a one-year statute of limitations in the Talent Agencies Act, so even if Clarkson could prove alleged illegal activities by her management, she could only claim commissions that were paid within the year prior to her October 2020 filing.
Blackstock requested Clarkson’s filing be dismissed and that she pay his legal fees.
A rep for Clarkson didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Starstruck Entertainment first sued the talk show host over alleged unpaid commissions in September 2020. The company claimed Clarkson owed $1.4 million from her work on “The Voice” and “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.
