Kelly Clarkson is being sued by a management company that is claiming the singer stopped paying and owes unpaid commissions.
The company, Starstruck Management Group, is owned by her estranged husband, Brandon Blackstock’s father, Narvel Blackstock.
The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, according to documents obtained by The Blast, and allege that Clarkson stopped paying the money owed to them. She is also on the hook for money she has yet to earn, which “are owed to Starstruck for its prior hard work and dedication to Clarkson’s career,” the publication is reporting.
The company, who has managed Clarkson for the last 13-years, says that Clarkson agreed to pay the company 15% on “gross earning, including future earnings from any projects, engagements or artistic works that began, were ongoing and/or were commercially exploited during Starstuck’s management of the Clarkson defendants.”
Starstruck alleges that Clarkson owes more than $3.3 million in commissions for 2020 but has only paid $1.4 million of that amount this year. The company estimates that she will owe them a total of $5.4 million by the end of the year.
According to ET, the lawsuit notes that there is no written agreement in place. However, it says Clarkson is in breach of an oral contract based on an agreement negotiated by her attorney and business manager with the management company back in 2007.
The lawsuit is asking for the millions owed in unpaid commissions and unspecified damages.
Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock on June 4 after seven years of marriage. The two share a 5-year-old daughter and a 4-year-old son.
