Thanksgiving for the Clarkson and Blackstock family may be awkward this year.
Kelly Clarkson is being sued by her management company, which is owned by her estranged husband Brandon’s father, Narvel Blackstock. Brandon is also listed as part of the company’s executive team.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Starstruck Management Group claims they are owed more than $1.4 million in unpaid commissions from The Voice judge. The lawsuit also claimed that Clarkson breached an oral contract, and seeks “declaratory relief and an accounting.”
“Over the course of approximately 13 years, Starstruck developed Clarkson into a mega superstar,” the complaint, via Entertainment Tonight, states. “By way of example only, Starstruck was instrumental in helping Clarkson achieve success in terms of numerous hit albums, multiple GRAMMY wins and nominations, her role on popular television shows like The Voice and her own talk show.”
