Legal Decision: Brandon Blackstock Directed to Pay Kelly Clarkson $2.6M

Kelly Clarkson's most recent court win over her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock is expected to result in a multimillion dollar payout.

A California labor commissioner declared earlier this month that Blackstock owed the Grammy-winning musician and talk-show host more than $2.6 million in commissions for going beyond his managerial responsibilities

According to court documents acquired by The Times, the country music manager allegedly "'unlawfully procured'" multiple business arrangements that should have been handled by Clarkson's certified talent agents at CAA.

In a ruling on November 21, Labor Commissioner Lilia Garcia-Brower declared that 46-year-old Blackstock had broken the state's Talent Agencies Act (TAA).

The court stated that under TAA,

"a manager, like any person without a talent agency license, cannot procure or attempt to procure employment for artists."
