(Radio.com) Nineties alternative rock icon Alanis Morissette has filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming her former manager Jonathan Schwartz transferred millions of dollars to his own accounts without her permission (via BBC News).

"Morissette was completely unaware of these cash transfers and had not authorized them," the complaint says. The singer is suing Schwarz and his company GSO for $15 million.

Schwartz handled Morissette's financial accounts between 2009 and 2016 and Morissette is suing him for breach of duty, fraud and negligence. The singer, whose '90s mega-hits included "You Oughta Know" and "Ironic," fired Schwartz in March. Soon after, her new business manager, Howard Grossman, discovered 116 suspicious withdrawals, to the tune of more than $4.7 million.

According to the complaint, Schwartz said the transfers were made to fund a marijuana-growing business investment for the singer, and to avoid extra trips to the bank because Morissette "spends a lot of cash." She denies both claims. Read more here.
