Kelly Clarkson‘s friendship with music mogul Clive Davis has always been a rocky one, but the pair reignited their feud last night when Kelly responded to a number of claims in Clive’s new book, The Soundtrack Of My Life. The stars worked together on several of Kelly’s biggest hits, but Clive’s recollection of some their meetings differs greatly from Kelly’s.
Last night, she took to her Twitter page to issue a statement, saying: “So I just heard Clive Davis is releasing a memoir and spreading false information about me and my music. First, he says I burst into ‘hysterical sobbing’ in his office when he demanded Since You Been Gone be on my album. Not true at all. His stories and songs are mixed up.”
She admitted that she had cried to the producer, but on a different occasion, revealing: “I did cry in his office once. I cried after I played him a song I had written about my life called Because Of You. I cried because he hated it and told me verbatim that I was a ‘s****y writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me.'” Eek.
Clive has responded today, saying: “As anyone who has read The Soundtrack of My Life knows, I think Kelly Clarkson is a tremendous vocal talent and performer. In the book, I provide an in-depth look at our years together during which we shared major multi-platinum success, as well as a few creative differences.
“I am truly very sorry that she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together. Before the book was published, I had every fact checked with five independent individuals who were present on a daily basis throughout it all.”
