Oyogist has learned that Popular American Rapper, Jay Z has been liberated from a whopping 68 Million dollar lawsuit which was filed by a perfume company, Parlux.
Parlux had filed the breach of contract suit in 2016 after accusing Jay-Z – whose real name is Shawn Carter – and his company S. Carter Enterprises of failing to promote his fragrance Gold Jay Z.
Following a three-week trial and two hours of deliberation, jurors found him not liable for the hefty claim.
The jury also rejected Jay-Z’s $6 million countersuit for alleged unpaid royalties.
‘You failed to prove your case, they failed to prove their case,’ Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Andrew Borrok said after reading the verdict.
‘You’re excused,’ he told the jury.
Shortly after the court hearing, a reporter jokingly asked jay Z, “Do you have 98 problems now?’ in reference to his song ’99 Problems’.
‘I like that,’ Jay-Z chuckled in response.
