Spears' Former Manager Filed Lawsuit As A Last Resort

LATEST: BRITNEY SPEARS' former manager is "disappointed" at the breakdown of their business relationship, but claims he was forced to sue the singer for unpaid commission as a last resort. Johnny Wright filed his lawsuit in Florida last week (29Oct07), accusing Spears of failing to pay him a share of her earnings last Christmas (06) - even though a five-year deal she struck with the svengali doesn't end until February 2008. And Wright claims he tried to help Spears deal with her problems before her pubic downfall, which saw her end up in rehab in February (07). He tells People.com, "I've reached out to the people around her, because I want to sit down with her and help in any way that I can. But I don't know if my messages don't get to her, or if she just doesn't want to deal with me. "I didn't want to sue Britney, but she didn't leave me much choice. "I have worked with Britney in some capacity since she was 15. She was always focused. She was good at what she did and a very hard worker. "Those were magic moments. We did some tremendous things together. So it's disappointing to see how things have turned out." Wright is seeking unspecified damages and attorney fees from Spears, who he managed between 1999 and 2003.
