Britney Settles Lawsuit With Ex-Manager

Britney Spears has one less legal scuffle to come home to.

Attorneys for the touring poptart have settled a lawsuit brought by a manager Spears worked with in the early aughts who complained that she broke her agreement to pay him commissions until 2008.

The "Toxic" singer worked with Johnny Wright until 2003, according to the suit, and she stopped cutting him checks at the end of 2006.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, per the Los Angeles Times.

Also in court today, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz, who has been overseeing Spears' conservatorship and approving money exchanges right and left, signed off on another $193,000 in legal fees to be paid by Spears' estate mainly to the attorneys who handled this case.

Meanwhile, Spears had the night off Friday in between shows at London's O2 Arena, where she's set to perform eight times before moving the Circus to Manchester's M.E.N. Arena on June 17



For anyone who is wondering who Johnny Wright is: Johnny Wright and Larry Rudolph were Britney's co-managers from 1998 to late 2002 (Wright was also managing Justin Timberlake/*NSYNC during that period.) Around the time that Britney and Justin broke up, Larry Rudolph started his own management firm (Reigndeer Entertainment,) and parted ways with Wright. Britney left with Larry, and Larry became Britney's exclusive manager from then on. Wright still manages Justin to this day.

When Britney was strapped to a gurney and taken to the psych ward in 2008, Johnny Wright was giving interviews to Rolling Stone and Blender about how messed up she was. In December 2008, he did an interview with OK! (see below) where he implied that Britney had put her career before her kids. He's a class act, that one.
