According to allhiphop.com Jay-Z sued David Ortiz of the Boston RedSox today, for not only opening a night club in the Dominican Republic using the same name as Jay-Z ‘s club, 40/40 but for also using the domain name fortyforty.net.
According to Jay, Ortiz’ club opened in October of this year, while Jay-Z’s first 40/40 location in New York opened in June of 2003.
Jay-Z claims Ortiz is capitalizing on the fame and value of the club, by using the name according to a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Federal Court earlier today
Jay-Z further says that Ortiz is aware of the club’s name, because he has patronized Jay-Z’s famous flagship location in Manhattan in the past.
For the record so have I.
