Music manager Dan Dymtrow claims that he is owed millions in commissions because he discovered Taylor Swift, signed her in April 2004 when she was 14 and played a key role in building her career before being dumped in July 2005, just before she signed with Big Machine Records and became an international sensation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Dymtrow said his..
..management deals with Swift and parents Scott and Andrea Swift provided that he be paid between 5%-10% commission (or more) from Taylor’s music career. After developing Taylor and introducing her to Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta, Dymtrow said he was strung along by the family and then fired to avoid paying him. His attorney: ‘They delayed and delayed [the deal] and got rid of my client,
..and subsequently signed the deal and kept his commissions for themselves’. Taylor’s lawyer: ‘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.’
