What’s The Legal Matter Between Kelly Clarkson And Ex-Husband Brandon Blackstock

Kelly Clarkson is taking legal action against her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock again, just a few months after she won her case against him in court for millions of dollars. According to the complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles, Kelly Clarkson is suing Brandon Blackstock and his former management company Starstruck Entertainment for allegedly operating as an “unlicensed talent agency” that booked business deals for her dating back to 2007, in violation of California labor laws, the Talent agencies Act.

Her lawsuit, obtained by Page Six read that “Based on the wrongful acts and conduct of Starstruck … all agreements between the parties, should be declared void and unenforceable … and all monies previously paid by cross-complainants to Starstruck should be disgorged from Starstruck, forthwith.”

Clarkson is seeking reimbursement for some of the following: commissions, fees, profits, advances, producing fees or other monies. Blackstock was found not to have acted in accordance with California labor laws, which only allow talent agents to enter into employment agreements with their clients. Clarkson is appealing this decision, but Blackstock will have a much weaker case if she wins the new suit, which covers an additional 10 years than her initial complaint.

To respond the Clarkson’s latest filing, his lawyer, Bryan Freedman, shared a statement with Rolling Stone. “It is morally, ethically and legally wrong to attempt to get monies back from your ex-husband who not only helped her as her manager but who used those earnings on their children and Kelly and Brandon’s lifestyle during the marriage,” he said.

Clarkson’s lawsuit, however, was filed after Starstruck filed a wrongful suit against her in 2020 for unpaid commissions from her work on “The Voice” and “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
