Pop beauty Holly Valance has been ordered to pay $240,000 (GBP150,000) to
the manager she fired when her career took off.
The KISS KISS singer must pay the sum to SCOTT MICHAELSON after he
convinced a court in their native Australia last month (OCT03) he was unfairly
dismissed in January 2002.
JUDGE CLIFFORD EINSTEIN told the NEW SOUTH WALES SUPREME COURT Valance had
shown a "calculated disregard" for Michaelson, who discovered her aged 15.
Michaelson's lawyer says, "I hope I have been able to represent in some
way the many managers that have been in a similar position to me but have not
had the means to proceed to court."
