Kelly Clarkson - Scathing Memoir Causes Fallout Between Kelly Clarkson and Clive Davis

You’d never think of Kelly Clarkson of all people as confrontational, but it looks like she actually has some beef – with Clive Davis of all people.

After the legendary producer published a memoir, telling the story of his life, it was revealed that the book contained an entire chapter focused on the former American Idol winner. And let’s just say she wasn’t portrayed in the best possible light. According to Davis, at one point the singer even threw a temper tantrum in his office over not having her hit single Since U Been Gone included on her upcoming record. He also goes on to mention several other instances which portray Clarkson in a less than professional light.

However, the singer herself has said that there is absolutely no truth to the accusations. In fact, Clarkson describes a completely different version of events, where her breakdown was due to Davis bullying her.

“I cried because he hated it and told me verbatim that I was a ‘sh*tty writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me,’” she writes, continuing: “He continued on about how the song didn’t rhyme and how I should just shut up and sing. This was devastating coming from a man who I, as a young girl, considered a musical hero and was so honored to work with. But I continued to fight for the song and the label relented.” Because of You went on to become one of Ms Clarkson’s biggest hits.

So, who exactly has the right of it? Well, we’d go with Clarkson, but that might be just because of our soft spot for her soulful vocals. As of yet, Davis has made no additional comments on the matter.
