Randy Travis Gets Sued By His Ex-Wife, Manager
Elizabeth Travis Claims Singer Breached Their Management Contract
Randy Travis is being sued by his ex-wife and former manager, Elizabeth “Lib” Hatcher Travis, according to the Nashville Business Journal. Elizabeth reportedly filed the suit last Thursday claiming the singer breached their post-divorce management contract.
Citing documents filed in Davidson County Chancery Court, the newspaper reports that the Nashville-based Elizabeth Travis Management inked a management contract with Randy Travis five months after the couple’s 2010 divorce. But in those court documents, Elizabeth alleged that Randy (pictured together in happier times) “intentionally interfered with” the ability to do her job and undermined the “effectiveness of [his] career in the entertainment industry.” She also charged that Randy and his attorneys terminated the agreement without written notice.
In the suit’s blockbuster revelation, Elizabeth claims that her ex sent a large truck, an armed guard and several other men to her Nashville office, where they reportedly proceeded to haul off “practically all of the property and business records,” including computers and framed record plaques.
Elizabeth Travis is seeking a judgment in her favor, but did not specify a dollar amount.
