Jay Z Lawsuit Update: Logo Being Sued After Pregnant Beyonce Divorce Rumors
Time for another update in the life of Jay-Z, whose life seems to revolve around lawsuits these days. The A-list rapper is being sued for stealing a logo used at one of his companies. These latest claims follow reports that Beyonce may be divorcing the rap star and could even be pregnant with his baby.
When you're as big a celebrity as Jay-Z, a few lawsuits are going to be thrown your way.
Not only is he being sued to take a paternity test by a woman who claims he is the father of her child, but he's also being sued over the use of a logo.
According to court documents, New York Daily News is reporting that Dwayne is suing Jay Z over the logo used for Roc-A-Fella records, claiming he is the true designer:
"Dwayne Walker sued Jay Z in 2012 for $7 million in Manhattan Federal Court, alleging that he had been screwed out of royalties for the design he made in 1995...In April, Jay Z's attorney, Cynthia Arato, deposed Adrien Vargas, a designer who claimed he was the designer who created the Roc-A-Fella logo, filings indicate."
But Jay Z isn't the only person involved in lawsuits. Rapper Rick Ross is being sued by the photographer who took a photo of Jay Z Mr. Ross used in his music video.
According to TMZ, Rick Ross could lose a lot of cash in the deal:
"Djerrahian [the photographer] says the shot popped up in Ricky Rozay's new music video for his song, 'Movin' Bass'...which features Jay Z. We checked, and he's right...it does -- but only in a montage highlighting Jay's success... It's on-screen for fractions of a second, but those milliseconds could cost Rick and his label, Def Jam. Djerrahian's suing for all the profits they made off using the Jay Z image, and a court order to block them from further use."
