Los Angeles: Country singing sensation Taylor Swift`s former manager is suing the star alleging she owes him huge amount of money.

Dan Dymtrow, who managed Swift when she was 14, has filed a suit in federal court in New York claiming his management deals with the singer and her parents offered him a commission from Swift`s career in return for introducing the `Love Story` star to music executives, a tabloid said.

In the legal papers, Dymtrow claims he`s owed millions of dollars in commissions for playing a key role in the 20-year-old singer`s career, according to the tabloid.

He further alleges Swift`s parents delayed signing the recording contract until after he had been fired to avoid paying him his commissions.

Swift`s attorney Paul LiCalsi dismissed the claims saying that any suggestion that Dymtrow`s is responsible for launching his client`s career is "ludicrous".
