The Fearless One’s camp is busy this days with a few legal issues.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Swift’s former manager from April 2004 to July 2005, Dan Dymtrow is seeking millions of dollars in commission for Taylor’s success. This is before Taylor’s first single Tim McGraw was released. He also believes himself responsible for launching Taylor’s career and she eventually signing with Big Machine Records. The ex-manager’s lawyer claims the Swifts, Scott Swift in particular, conspired with Scott Borchetta to get him fired.
Taylor’s legal camp claims Dymtrow had failed to obtain the necessary legal permission to represent a minor. Taylor was 14 at the time. The two sides have been battling out of the public eye since 2007. Recently they submitted a joint letter requesting documents they hope will prove either’s case.
We hope the issue gets resolved soon. Two other claims by Dmytrow against the Swifts have already been thrown out of court. I don’t have to tell you which side I’m on, but when it comes to money the law gets tricky. No trial date yet. We’ll just have to wait and see.
In other news, Taylor’s management has won a court settlement in Tennessee against 16 individuals who were selling fake merchandise branded with Taylor’s name, reported the Associated Press.
And finally, Fearless, Taylor’s most successful album and one of the most long-running successes ever finally dropped off the Country Music Billboard Top Ten, reported the News Sentinel. However, chances are that if Speak Now does good a few people will pick up Fearless again, making it rise once more. Even then, the album has had terrific sales, top honors and has demonstrated its longevity over close to the two years since it’s release on November 11, 2008.
