Country singer Randy Travis filed a countersuit last week in response to his ex-wife’s management company’s lawsuit against him, which was filed in April.
In his countersuit, Travis claims that Elizabeth Travis Management intentionally attempted to damage his career, stating that ETM revealed “personal and confidential” information to third parties “that was reasonably calculated to damage Travis’s personal reputation and entertainment career.”
Travis re-entered into a managing agreement with his ex-wife in March 2011, after they divorced. ETM maintained in its initial lawsuit that Travis didn’t “act in a conscientious and professional manner” by attempting to get out of the contract after only six months.
ETM also claims Travis ordered an armed guard and others to ransack ETM’s Music Row office.
But Travis’s countersuit contains a letter notifying ETM that he was terminating the contract due to breaches by Elizabeth Travis, including overcharging for travel expenses.
The letter from Randy Travis’s attorney also gave a day’s notice about sending movers to remove items from ETM’s office.
Randy and Elizabeth Travis were married for 19 years. Elizabeth Travis worked as Randy’s manager for 34 years.
Randy Travis has 18 No. 1 hits and 29 Top 10 singles, according to his website.
