Brandon Blackstock, the ex-husband of renowned singer Kelly Clarkson, has made a legal move to dismiss her second lawsuit against him.

Kelly Clarkson has filed a second lawsuit against her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, and his management firm, Starstruck Management, alleging that he operated as an unlicensed talent agent.

The lawsuit, obtained by Page Six, states:

“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 “commissions, fees, profits, advances, producing fees, or other monies” made to the company.

According to legal filings obtained by PEOPLE, Blackstock has denied the claims made by Clarkson in this latest lawsuit. They emphasize their rejection of “each and every allegation” put forward by the singer.

The documents, submitted on Monday (April 15), state that Clarkson’s allegations “do not provide enough factual basis to establish a legal claim against Starstruck and are consequently ineligible for relief.”

Brandon Blackstock Responds To Kelly Clarkson’s Lawsuit

In his legal response, Blackstock argued that the labor commissioner’s ruling in November 2023 should have concluded the matter. He claimed that Clarkson’s failure to file a notice of appeal within the 10-day period relinquished her right to seek additional compensation through a separate lawsuit. This failure to appeal within the specified timeframe forms the basis of Blackstock’s request for the dismissal of Clarkson’s cross-complaint.

Moreover, Blackstock’s legal team maintained that Clarkson’s complaint fails to present adequate facts to establish a cause of action against Starstruck.

Starstruck previously sued Clarkson for unpaid commissions related to her work on The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Voice.

Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from Brandon Blackstock on June 4, 2020.
