Kelly Clarkson is being sued by her management office Starstruck for allegedly paying them too little commission this year. Variety reports Tuesday that the singer still owes her management more than 1.2 million euros according to the indictment.
Clarkson teamed up with Starstruck Management Group in 2007 and has worked with them for the past thirteen years. The company is run by Narvel Blackstock, the father of Clarkson’s former husband Brandon Blackstock. Brandon and Clarkson filed for divorce earlier this year.
Clarkson and the company verbally agreed in 2007 that the singer would hand over a commission of 15 percent of her income to them, according to the indictment. She did this without any problems in recent years, but this year the company received around 1.6 million euros and according to them an additional 1.2 million euros should be added.
They expect this amount to rise to around EUR 4.6 million by the end of the year, due to Clarkson’s work at The Voice and her own talk show The Kelly Clarkson Show.
‘Indispensable to her success’
In the indictment, the company claims to have been indispensable to Clarkson’s hit singles, Grammy winnings and success on television. “Despite our hard work and dedication, Clarkson has decided to stop paying us what we are contractually entitled to,” the indictment said.
Clarkson has not yet responded substantively to the allegations. She did put a poison on it Twitter which appears to be a response to the indictment.
Clarkson broke through in the United States in 2002 when they released the first edition of American Idol won. She went on to score a string of international hits including Because Of You, Since U Been Gone, My Life Would Suck Without You in Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).
