Country legend Randy Travis says his ex-wife is a scam-artist who came up with a diabolical plot to ruin his career and cheat him out of his hard-earned cash ... this according to new legal docs.
The singer has filed a lawsuit against Elizabeth Travis -- his ex-wife and manager of 30 years -- claiming she breached her contract by running around town blabbing personal details about him in order to torpedo his career. Randy wasn't specific about the "personal details," but it sounds pretty bad.
And that's just the beginning ...Travis claims Elizabeth tried to con even more money out of him with inflated travel reimbursement requests.
The new suit comes on the heels of Elizabeth filing her own lawsuit ... claiming it was Randy who breached their contract when he canned her in 2011. She wants her full management fee.
Randy is asking the judge to block his ex from getting a cut from his future gigs.
A judge has yet to rule.

ZAC BROWN has a house full of kids, and he's okay with that. But he's also been thinking it may be time to ease off the pedal, if you know what I mean.
He says, quote, "We've had four girls in five years. I know how to make girls. I figured that out. I love them and I wouldn't trade the world for them. But I think we're going to enjoy the ones we have for now.
"It's like herding cats at home. They're always running in every direction."
