Former Manager Sues Taylor Swift for Breach of Contract

by at . Comments

Turns out, not everyone loves Taylor Swift.

Dan Dymtrow is suing the young singer for millions, claiming he's owed money for having signed her as a 14-year old and helping to build her career.

The former manager says he deserves at least 5-10% commission from Swift's sales, but her family conspired to fire him before he could collect.

“They delayed and delayed [the deal] and got rid of my client and subsequently signed [another] deal and kept his commissions for themselves,” says attorney Fernando Pinguelo.

Swift's lawyer counters that Dymtrow's claim is "ludicrous" because the manager never followed through on the mandatory paperwork to assure himself of such royalties.

The two sides have been fighting since 2007, when Dymtrow (who has also represented Britney Spears) first sued the Swifts because he believed they breached a contract by paying him just $10,000 for his work launching Taylor’s career.

No trial date has been set for the latest lawsuit. Swift's new album, meanwhile, comes out on October 25.
