Clive Davis is firing back at Kelly Clarkson only hours after the American Idoldisputed claims about their testy relationship, as written about in Davis’ new memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life.

“As anyone who has read The Soundtrack of My Life knows, I think Kelly Clarkson is a tremendous vocal talent and performer,” Davis wrote Tuesday night on his Twitter. “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,” he continues. “Before the book was published, I had every fact checked with five independent individuals who were present on a daily basis throughout it all. The chapter as it is written was thoroughly verified by each and every one of them. I stand by the chapter as written in my book. At the same time I wish, and will always wish, Kelly’s talent and her career to soar to ever new heights.”

Earlier Tuesday, Clarkson — whose fallout with Davis hit the press in 2007 upon the release of her then-new CD, My December, fired off a brutal open letter to fans on her WhoSay page, in which she claimed that Davis’ book contained “memory lapses and misinformation.”

“Growing up is awesome because you learn you don’t have to cower to anyone – even Clive Davis,” she wrote.
