Taylor Swift's ex-manager is suing for millions

Taylor-Swift

Image Credit: Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty ImagesTaylor Swift’s former manager Dan Dymtrow is suing for millions he claims to be owed in commissions for helping launch the career of the country star. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the legal wrangling dates back to 2007 when Dymtrow initially sued Taylor Swift and her parents, claiming they breached a management contract by paying him only $10,000. Dymtrow, who has also represented Britney Spears, signed Swift in April 2004, but stopped overseeing her career in July 2005, the year before she broke big with her single “Tim McGraw.”

Dymtrow claims that he should have been paid a commission for his work. The Swift camp argues that Dymtrow failed to obtain the required court approval of his management contract with Taylor, which was necessary because she was a minor.
