Jason Alexander Claims That He Actually Discovered Taylor Swift Back In 2007…

no title

We don't know if we believe this…

Taylor Swift may not be 100% country anymore, but that doesn't mean she doesn't owe her fame to her original southern twang!

Tay Tay first made a name for herself back in 2006 with her debut single Tim Megraw, but now one celebrity is claiming that he actually first discovered the 25-year-old.

While we were under the assumption that Scott Borchetta found and signed Taylor, Jason Alexander recently revealed that he put T-Swift on the map when he cast her in one of his music videos!

Jason apparently starred in and directed Brad Paisley's 2007 hit Online and put Taylor and Kellie Pickler in the vid as extras.

Since Taylor already had a radio-friendly track on her hands by that point, we think she was well on her way to super-stardom… but the publicity couldn't have hurt!

Ch-ch-check out Taylor play backup to Brad and Jason (below)!!!

Taylor Swift's Former Manager Is Suing Her!


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!
