Britney Spears' former manager sues pop star

Britney Spears' former manager claims that the pop star has failed to pay for his work. 

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Florida's Orange County Circuit Court on behalf of Johnny Wright, the music manager behind New Kids on the Block, 'NSync and the Backstreet Boys, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Wright and his Wright Entertainment Group managed Spears between 1999 and 2003, but the lawsuit cites a contract that would have kept payments coming to the group until February 2008.

Spears has allegedly not made a payment to Wright since December 2006.

The lawsuit brings two counts against Spears for a breach of contract and failure to report accounting records to the management company. It said she failed to provide an audit of money she earned that is subject to commission as well as pay commissions and portions of tour revenues.

The management group says in the lawsuit it helped Spears secure four albums, including 2003's "In the Zone" and 2004's "Greatest Hits - My Prerogative"; land a recording deal with Sean "P. Diddy" Combs; and plan and execute her tours.

A publicist for Spears was out of the office Friday and did not immediately return an e-mail request for comment.

Exhibits in the lawsuit filed by Wright's attorney Clay Townsend include an agreement signed in 1999 by Spears' parent on behalf of their daughter, who was a minor at the time, and later ones signed "Very truly yours" by Spears.
