Nobody at NBC wants Kelly Clarkson to perform that groovy music, a new report claimed. Sources are claiming that the odor emanating from her bare feet is making them want to leave.

“Kelly’s barefoot habit has become a hot topic behind the scenes. It’s not just about hygiene, it’s about maintaining a certain image. You wouldn’t catch anyone else flaunting bare feet inside NBC — but SHE gets away with it,” an unnamed insider told The National Enquirer.

The 42-year-old gabfest presenter has taken to airing her stinky tootsies and even singing barefoot, and informants said those who have to work with her are outraged about the "Since You’ve Been Gone" hitmaker’s toe jam.

“Kelly’s all about creating a laid-back, comfortable vibe for her audience. She wants viewers to feel at home, like they can just kick off their own shoes and relax along with her,” a tipster, who is familiar with Kelly’s love of letting her dogs run free, said.

Despite rising worries, NBC moles allegedly confirmed Kelly's barefoot adventures are strictly limited to the set.

“Let’s not get carried away here. She’s not traipsing around the entire building without shoes — but there’s definitely tension brewing over this. The clash between professionalism and casual comfort is real,” a snitch said.

Business Times has reached out to Kelly Clarkson for comments.

Meanwhile, a Los Angeles County judge ruled in favor of Kelly as she prepares to face her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, in court.

With the trial planned for August 27, the spotlight will be solely on whether Brandon, 47, earned fees on transactions he helped negotiate for Kelly, 42, in violation of California's Talent Agencies Act, Us Weekly reported. The legislation bans anyone other than licensed talent from earning a commission on deals arranged for professional artists.

“We will litigate whether there was a violation of the labor code only. Any questions as to earnings and damages, all of that will come after,” Judge Wendy Chang ruled.

For starters, this trial stems from an appeal Brandon filed over a November 2023 award. Lawyers of Kelly’s former partner are hoping that the imminent trial will center on the breach-of-contract allegations they brought against the “American Idol” alum in 2020 and Kelly’s personal finances.

According to his lawyers, doing so would have proven that the commission money was used to pay shared costs and provided Kelly with a lifestyle she "was able to enjoy."

“It is morally, ethically and legally wrong to attempt to get monies back from your ex-husband who not only helped her as her manager but who used those earnings on their children and Kelly and Brandon’s lifestyle during the marriage,” Bryan Freedman, a lawyer for Blackstock and his management firm, Starstruck Entertainment, wrote in a statement shared with Rolling Stone.

The trial is likely to run for at least five days and will feature live testimony from Rick Roskin and Darryl Eaton, both representatives at Kelly's current agency, CAA.

Brandon claimed Rick and Darryl were with him at "The Voice" studio in May 2017, just before he allegedly met with the NBC official who promised Kelly a position on the show. Brandon allegedly accepted a commission when Kelly was designated a judge on “The Voice” Season 14.
