My advice is to contact the other agent's broker. You don't need "evidence" as this is just a chat to let the other broker know their agent is putting the transaction (ad the sellers' customer satisfaction in jeopardy). Secondly, this isn't far, and it doesn't seem right, but I would just suck it up and get it done. If you want to file a pro standards complaint when it's over, you should. But as of right now your #1 priority is protecting your clients' interests.
I turn the tables. I talk to my buyers about my fee ahead of time and we we go to the sellers, I tell them it's a fixed amount and my buyer will make up whatever they don't want to pay and will affect the buyers' negotiating. My experience is that the buyers like how up-front this is.
