Randy Travis sued by ex-wife, former manager
Country star Randy Travis sued by ex-wife, former manager Elizabeth Travis
Randy Travis is being sued by his ex-wife and former manager.
Travis said in a statement that the lawsuit filed last week by Elizabeth Travis won't stand up in court.
"It is unfortunate that it's come to this," Travis said. "We believe the lawsuit lacks merit and that we have legal defenses to her claims."
The country music star doesn't address his ex-wife's claim that last August he hired an armed guard and several men to strip her office of records and memorabilia related to his career.
The lawsuit claims Randy Travis' employees took computers with working files, business records and even the record plaques from the walls from Elizabeth Travis' three-story Music Row office.
She says her ex-husband also made it impossible for her to do her job and terminated their management agreement without written warning. She's asking for damages, attorney fees, litigation costs and whatever other damages the court feels appropriate.
The Travises divorced in 2010 after 19 years of marriage. Elizabeth Travis had served as his manager for more than three decades.
The lawsuit comes after Travis' arrest in February for public intoxication following a Super Bowl party in Sanger, Texas.
