Topic: The Price of Fame--Fator Sued

How sad. Terry Fator's former manager (the one who helped him get famous and who came up with the idea of the puppets doing the imitations)is suing Terry over being fired. I guess it always comes down to money.

Terry seems to be a good man...

If he fired his manager and got a new one, I'm guessing it has something to do with the way the former manager runs the business.

In any case, I'm sure it will be resolved or settled...it's just money matters and Terry has tons of green bucks :)

I still believe Terry Fator deserves the AGT win...the fame that goes with the win...and the Millions of $$$ that go with the fame.

Unfortunately this may tarnish Terry's image a bit. He truly is a nice person and the fame hasn't seemed to change him. I'm certain Terry and his original manager had a contract and the court will examine the details.

There is no doubt, his original manager feels he deserves some of the big money. The question is if he is entitled by law. In this business, its about who you know and what doors can be opened for you. It is ridiculous to assume a manager can not be fired - even if he did help start you out. Its business.
