The Hollywood Reporter claims that Dan Dymtrow was promised 5% – 10% commission from the singer’s music career due to him important role before he was dumped.
The former manager revealed that he discovered Taylor when she was 14, back in 2004 but once her career was developed and met Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta, he was dumped before the singer to sign with the label.
According to Dymtrow’s attorney, the singer’s family refused to pay him: “They delayed and delayed [the deal] and got rid of my client and subsequently signed the deal and kept his commissions for themselves.”
Moreover, Swift’s lawyer declared: “For him to claim that her success and her major contracts were procured by him is ludicrous. And 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.”
Therefore, both sides submitted a joint letter to the court.
