Former Manager to Brit: Gimme More Money!

11/1/2007 7:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jonny Wright -- manager of such high-powered acts as Justin Timberlake, the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC -- is suing his most famous client, Britney Spears, claiming she hasn't forked over commissions owed him from when she was actually famous for her performing.
Read the lawsuit
Wright Entertainment Group (WEG) managed Spears until February 2003, but were supposed to keep receiving commissions until February 2008 for deals they negotiated on Brit's behalf. Now WEG claims, that Spears stopped paying in December 2006. Oops!

The lawsuit, filed in Florida by attorney Clay Townsend on Monday, alludes to Spears' erratic behavior of late, saying WEG made a concerted effort to work with "the various business managers hired and fired by Spears."

WEG is seeking unspecified damages and attorney fees.

Really now    

Sammie, you are truly an idiot. You keep criticizing people for being fans of Britney Spears. Last time I checked it was still a free country. Then you proceed to repeat this nonsense about Britney Spears' alleged drug use. Has it ever occured to you that such drug use has never been proven and in fact the only person who alleges this was a disgruntled ex employee? Has it ever occurred to you that if indeed Britney Spears was a drug addict the courts would not have allowed her overnight visitation with her children one week after the initial order? Britney Spears has had some problems but hypocrites like you who continue to spread falsehoods about others merely because of your envy of their success makes the rest of us sick. She is no better or worse than any other new mother and if your frame of reference is really the contradictory rubbish published on these gossip sites, then I am truly sorry for you. I know it is now popular to bash Britney Spears and proclaim hatred of her but you and other jokers like you had better recognise that her fan base transcends your putrid little sphere of influence and hence her music offerings will continue to do well globally.
