Kelly Clarkson claimed that she was lied to by her record label about her hit song Since U Been Gone while appearing on Tuesday on Watch What Happens Live.

The 41-year-old singer shared her version of the song’s history after being asked remotely by viewers Taylor and Gabriel if she had spoken with music producer Clive Davis, 91, since he released his 2013 memoir that included stories about her.

‘Wait. He has a memoir with stories about me?,’ asked Kelly, who previously refuted Clive’s claims in his memoir.

‘He does,’ confirmed show host Andy Cohen, 55, referencing Clive’s memoir ‘The Soundtrack of My Life’.

‘Are you serious? Oh, they’re talking about me, aren’t they?,’ Kelly quipped to applause from the studio audience in Recent York City.

Andy shared that Clive wrote ‘a bunch’ about her 2004 song Since U Been Gone in his memoir.

‘I’d like to know his version,’ Kelly said.

‘His version was that he sort of needed to force you to record it, that you simply didn’t want to incorporate it in your album,’ Andy said.

‘Well, here’s why. Let’s get some back story. I used to be lied to and so they told me, ”Hey, there’s these producers that need to work with you and there is this song.” It had like dummy lyrics. They didn’t really have lyrics ,’ Kelly said.

‘I used to be told you write to the song, flew me to Sweden. Like, I get there and these two people, you understand, [producers] Luke and Max weren’t told that I used to be writing to it and just already had it written and I looked like a idiot, because I walked in and the label had told me something completely different,’ Kelly said referencing the song’s  writers and producers Lukasz ‘Dr. Luke’ Gottwald and Max Martin.

‘I just think that is a red flag, too. Like, why mislead me like that? Why get me to go there and so they’ll have the song. I don’t love the lying. That is why I actually have a foul vibe with that song. There are interesting facts people wish to miss,’ Kelly said.

Andy noted that they played Since U Been gone through the business break and everybody within the audience was ‘going crazy and singing it’.

‘How do you separate the luggage from the song that got here before with the love that folks have for it?,’ Andy asked.
