Clarkson’s Divorce Has Been Rough
Clarkson and Blackstock have been involved in a legal battle since soon after their divorce. In previous documents obtained by OK! Magazine, Clarkson claims that her ex-husband’s management company, Starstruck Management, acted as her agent in spite of being unlicensed to do so in the state of California and without her written approval.
She claims that they demanded “unconscionable fees” and provided “false information” and “false representations,” all the while concealing “material information from [Clarkson] concerning certain matters relating to [Starstruck’s] … violation of the Labor Code.”
The lawsuit names both Blackstock and his father, Narvel Blackstock.
In documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Blackstock issued a formal response about the allegations of defrauding that Clarkson previously filed.
The couple also went through a custody battle with Clarkson ultimately coming out on top. TMZ reported that Clarkson won full custody of her children in a Los Angeles court. The couple was fighting over the custody of their 6-year-old daughter River and their 4-year-old son Remy.
According to court documents obtained by E! Online, Clarkson and Blackstock have been at odds when it comes to co-parenting their children, which is another way the couple has been involved in a legal battle since their divorce.
Blackstock has requested $436,000 a month in spousal and child support, according to People.
