Jay-Z Sues David Oritz!

Jay-Z is taking the Yankees vs. Red Sox rivalry to a new venue!

The courtroom!

Jay-Z is reportedly suing Red Sox powerhouse slugger David Ortiz, claiming that a nightclub opened by Ortiz in his native Dominican Republic was named after Jay's 40/40 club concept.

Basically, Big Papi opened a club called club Forty-Forty, a reference to 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases, which BTW is NOT a record he holds. Anyway, Jay is saying that Ortiz named his club that to scrub off the popularity of Jay's chain of 40/40 clubs, which can be found around the world.

Jay has filed a $5 million suit which not only states that the baseball star knew about the clubs, but that he had also been in them. The suit says:

"David Ortiz is fully aware of Plaintiff's Manhattan 40/40 club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions before he opened his infringing Forty/Forty club."

Oops! Forgot about that did you, Big Papi? Tsk, tsk!

Yankees win this round!

    Isn't he to old to be going by his rapper name? Rapper names are just so damned stupid.

    Ortiz's club IS in the Dominican Republic. Interesting factor.
    Jay-Z needs to stop worrying about his failing night clubs and get back to the mic.

    if porn movies can be called "NOT THE BRADY BUNCH", then big pappy can do what he wants. sounds legitimate.

    Re: perez hizilton
    I think that's a trademark not a copyright brain donor. If J Monkeys clubs are global then he would have the name trademarked. Regardless, so what you're saying is i can go to the Dominican and open a chain of Chili's and just call it that? You actually might have shit for brains.

    Riiiiight…#1 Jay sang about the Yankees in a song, he's not one. Being a hardon for the team doesn't make you one of them. #2 The club is in DR(where Papi is way way bigger than Jay Z); copyright infringement won't hold up there since the DR isn't a US or British territory.

    Perez you enormous dummy. 40/40 isn't a "record". It's a level of performance met and exceeded by four players.

    YANKEES SUCK!!!!!



  18. 18

    I HATE JAY-Z AND THE YANKEES. SEEMS LIKE JAY-Z WANT TO CONTROL THE WORLD AND THESE STUPID PEOPLE R LETTING HIS HAVE SO MUCH POWER. HIS SONGS R NO GOOD FOR OUT CHILDREN ANYWAY. IF U DON'T KNOW WHO DAVID ORTIZ IS , HE PLAYS FOR THE BOSTON RED SOCKS. JAY-Z NEEDS TO STOP HIS SHIT AND STOP TRYING TO BLOCK PEOPLE WHO WANTS TO DO THEIR THING. IF U R NOT PART OF HIS MOVEMENT HE DON'T WANT U TOP MAKE MONEY



  19. 19

    I don't care too much for Jay-Z, nor these dim-witted athletes. 40/40 will be more popular in the DR than the BORING one in NYC anyway. BTW Mario, do you have a problem with Dominicans?

    Yankees suck
    Red Soxx sucks
    NEXT….!
