Taylor Swift Suit

SWIFT RETRIBUTION: A former manager of Taylor Swift says her parents conspired to cheat him out of million of dollars, according to a story in Hollywood Reporter. The case was brought in federal court inN.Y. by Dan Dymtrow, a music manager who claims he’s owed millions in commissions after discovering Swift, signing her in April 2004 when she was 14, and introducing her to Scott Borchetta, who inked her to Big Machine Records shortly after Dymtrow was dumped in July 2005. Dymtrow says his management deals with Swift and parents Scott and Andrea Swift provided that he be paid between 5%-10% commission (or more) from the singer’s music career. The Swifts claim that because Dymtrow failed to obtain the required court approval of management contract with Taylor, then a minor, she legally repudiated the deal in 2005, months before she signed the Big Machine deal and a full year before she released her debut single, “Tim McGraw.” Swift's new album, Speak Now, comes out on Oct. 25.  (10/8p)
