Country Superstar Randy Travis Sued by Ex-Wife for Breach of Contract
Posted on Jan 01, 2016
On Thursday, April 5, Elizabeth Travis filed a breach of contract lawsuit against her ex-husband, country music superstar Randy Travis. Ms. Travis was formerly Mr. Travis’s manager. The couple had executed a post-divorce management contract. In her lawsuit, Ms. Travis alleges that her ex-husband intentionally interfered with her ability to perform her job. She further alleges that the musician undermined the effectiveness of his career in the entertainment industry.
Ms. Travis filed her breach of contract lawsuit in Davidson County Chancery Court, citing the terms of the couple’s post-divorce management contract that was executed five months after their divorce in 2010. In support of her claims, Ms. Travis alleges that:
- Mr. Travis had a “large truck, an armed guard, and several other men” show up at her Music Row office to remove property and business records, including computers and framed record plaques.
- In early 2012, during Super Bowl weekend, Mr. Travis was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication.
While she is seeking a judgment in her favor, Ms. Travis does not specify a dollar amount that she is seeking in the complaint.
Mr. Travis married Ms. Travis in 1991, and their relationship began more than thirty years ago. The two met while Mr. Travis was employed as a cook in a nightclub in North Carolina. Mr. Travis has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1986. He is currently engaged in an anniversary tour commemorating his 25th anniversary in the music business.
