Some crook pretended to be Britney Spears‘ manager and got her record label to send a bunch of yet-to-be-released music … TMZ has learned..

According to docs obtained by TMZ … the suspect impersonated¬†Larry Rudolph, Brit’s longtime manager, and emailed RCA Records to ask for tracks that at the time were unreleased. The person went so far as to create larry.rudolph@aol.com … which is not Larry’s actual email address.

Didn’t matter … RCA reps got duped and uploaded 49 digital files.

In all, law enforcement says he nabbed 12 tracks intended for Britney’s album, “Glory,” which was released in August 2016 … shortly after this caper.

Law enforcement obtained search warrants in October 2016 and June 2017 to search AOL and Microsoft records for the suspect’s email account — and they now have a suspect. They say he’s an attorney who’s studying intellectual property law at UCLA.¬†There goes the Dean’s List.

The case is still under investigation.
