Taylor Swift's alleged former manager, Dan Dymtrow, is suing the cutie pie because he claims that he discovered her when she was 14, and when he introduced her to Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta, he got screwed out of his 5%-10% commission and only received $10k for his contributions to her career!
His lawyer, Fernando Pinguelo, says:
"They delayed and delayed [the deal] and got rid of my client and subsequently signed the deal and kept his commissions for themselves."
However, Swift's lawyer, Paul LiCalsi, alleges:
"For him to claim that her success and her major contracts were procured by him is ludicrous. Even if there were some merit to his claims, paying him on the contract would defeat the whole purpose of the law in New York, which is to protect minors who sign contracts."
According to them, Dymtrow never even obtained the proper legal documents to actually sign as her manager!
Sounds like this is just a case of sour grapes to us!
Ha! Good luck trying to prove that case, then!
