“Crosswalk News” Reporter Robert Hardman Reports on the Latest on Britney Spears’s Musical Career.
Reports indicate there is more fight over Britney Spears’ management.
Spears is being sued for allegedly failing to make proper financial payments to two former managers.
Her former business manager Jeff Kwatinetz filed a $7 million lawsuit claiming she owes him and her ex-spokesman a $100 million profit-sharing payout.
According to the suit, Kwatinetz claims he directed her funds from tours, merchandise and fan club. He also claims he set up a “loyalty program” for the pop star and her fans, but she removed the program and is not paying him.
The law firm representing Spears has issued a statement, which reads in part:
Britney’s manager, James Roppo, denies the allegations made in the suit. Both Kwatinetz and Roppo have fiduciary obligations to the promoters and managers of Britney’s shows and to her fans.
This is just one chapter in what has been a rough year for the 42-year-old’s career.
In November, she was stuck in a 13-day performance hiatus following a 45-minute “mental breakdown” in London, following a performance at the O2 Arena.
She later claimed on her website that she was “in total shock after the breakdown” because she believes she’s “not that sick or that crazy.”
