Kelly Clarkson has responded to statements made by record executive Clive Davis in a combination of online posts and her autobiography. The singer accused him of bullying and spreading false rumours.

If there’s one thing we know about Clarkson, it’s that she’s pretty feisty. So when she read what she perceived to be false comments, there was no way she’d back down. "So I just heard Clive Davis is releasing a memoir and spreading false information about me and my music,” she wrote on an online post called, ‘Hey Y’all’. “I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses.” In 2007, Kelly Clarkson revealed she was no longer working with Davis because of creative differences over her album, and later apologised for the feud. Back then, she called him "one of the greatest record men of all time," wonder what she’d call him now? "First, he says I burst into 'hysterical sobbing' in his office when he demanded Since U Been Gone be on my album. Not true at all,” she adds.

Davis has offered a rebuttal to her counterclaims (still with us?) stating: "Before the book was published, I had every fact checked with five independent individuals who were present on a daily basis throughout it all. The chapter as it is written was thoroughly verified by each and every one of them.
