Although busy with preparations for her upcoming nuptials, Mexico’s golden girl is making time for a court appearance to testify against ex-manager, Angelo Medina, who she accuses of “tarnishing her reputation” and causing fiscal problems.

In the lawsuit, notes the newspaper, La Opinion, the singer of hits such as “Give Me Another Tequila,” is asking the California Labor Commission to rule against Medina for taking illegal actions as her agent, for which he must return the $1.4 million. She claims, among other things, that the accused’s failure to keep full expense records during her 2002 tour kept her from properly filing income tax returns.

From his side, the noted manager fired back that the singer still owes him $300,000 for “services rendered” and dismisses Pau’s newest accusations as little more than a publicity ploy.

Peopleenespañol.com reached out to the singer’s publicist for confirmation of this information, but has yet to receive comment.

These legal troubles are similar to the ones experienced by Ricky Martin in 2004 when, after a long friendship and many, successful collaborations, the Puerto Rican heart throb sued Medina for $2.5 million for “outstanding debts.” The manager immediately filed a countersuit for $6.5 million, claiming breach of contract.
