Taylor Swift's former manager is suing the country star over cash he alleges she owes him.
Dan Dymtrow, who managed Swift when she was 14, has filed suit in federal court in New York. He claims his management deals with the singer and her parents offered him a commission from Swift's career in return for introducing the "Love Story" star to music executives.
In the legal papers, Dymtrow claims he's owed millions of dollars in commissions for playing a key role in Swift's career and was fired by Taylor's father Scott in July 2005.
Dymtrow's lawyer produced an email allegedly written by Scott Swift to Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta that read, "Enough with the Dymtrow. You asked me to break both his legs, wrap him in chains and throw him in the lake. I did." Swift's lawyer Paul LiCalsi responded to Dmytrow's lawsuit by saying "For him to claim that her success and her major contracts were procured by him is ludicrous." The lawsuit has been quietly simmering since 2007. In March, a judge threw out all but one of Dymtrow's claims against Swift.
All of this has come into light just a day after Swift won a court battle against 16 people who she claimed violated her trademark by selling counterfeit merchandise bearing her name and her Grammy-winning, multi-platinum CD "Fearless."
