Yesterday, we reported that Kelly Clarkson tore into legendary record executive Clive Davis and his memoir book.  Clive has officially fired back.....


with an apology!


Well, maybe an apology and a come back statement.


In his new memoir, Clive Davis wrote that 'Kelly burst into "hysterical sobbing" in his office because she claimed he was forcing her to put two songs she "hated" -- "Since U Been Gone" and "Behind These Hazel Eyes" '.


Clarkson then ranted 'I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation.'


Davis followed up with this:

I think Kelly Clarkson is a tremendous vocal talent and performer. In the book, I provide an in-depth look at our years together during which we shared major multi-platinum success, as well as a few creative differences. I am truly very sorry that she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together.’ (ABC)


You're move Hazel Eyes......
