Jay-Z Sues David Ortiz Over Club Name

Rapper and his business partner are suing baseball great over the name of his new club in the Dominican Republic. The sportsman has reportedly called his place Forty/Forty - the same name as Jay-Z's sports bars in New York, Las Vegas and Atlantic City, New Jersey.

In a lawsuit filed in Manhattan's federal court on Thursday, April 15, Jay-Z and partner Juan Perez accused the Boston Red Sox star of infringing upon the name of their clubs. The lawsuit states, "David Ortiz is fully aware of plaintiff's Manhattan 40/40 Club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions, long before he opened his infringing Forty/Forty Club."

The legal problem aside, Jay-Z scrapped plans to invest in a new racetrack casino project in New York earlier last month. He dropped the invesment plan after officials brought in new rules which will force all the investors to submit comprehensive records on their own finances, and those of their spouses, to the state, according to the New York Observer.
