Imagine you marry your manager. Then the marriage doesn’t work out and then on top of everything you realize he was fleecing you as a manager!
Kelly Clarkson’s ex husband Brandon Blackstock reportedly overcharged her by millions when he represented the pop star as her manager.
A California labor commissioner ruled Blackstock, 46, ‘unlawfully’ booked jobs for Clarkson – including inking her deal as a judge on The Voice – while employed as her manager, as only agents can secure roles for talent, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
Blackstock collected fees for booking The Voice and other endorsements like Wayfair and Norwegian Cruise Line in the amount of $2,641,374, per the outlet.
The labor commissioner ordered Blackstock to return the commissions — which includes the $1.98 million for The Voice gig –to his ex-wife.
The outlet reported that Blackstock said he will appeal the decision.
