LOS ANGELES, Calif. (November 15, 2007) — Court papers show a wrongful termination lawsuit against Barry Manilow by his former tour manager has been dropped.
An attorney for Manilow’s companies says the parties reached a mutual agreement in which plaintiff Liberato Fabro agreed not to pursue the lawsuit. He wouldn’t comment on whether there was a financial settlement.
Fabro sued Manilow’s companies in September, alleging he was wrongfully fired because of a disability and for divorcing his boss’ daughter, who also worked for the singer.
Fabro oversaw the entertainer’s concert tours and television appearances from 1999 to 2006.
