JAY-Z approved in  million lawsuit over Cologne deal


JAY-Z has one less problem.

On Wednesday, a jury acquitted the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer in a lawsuit with Parlux Fragrances LLC that alleged he violated contractual obligations for his signature “Gold Jay-Z” cologne by failing to properly promote it.

According to Billboard, he will not be held liable for $67 million in damages claimed. No money was awarded to Parlux or JAY-Z, who demanded $6 million in royalties from the deal.

“You have not proved your case, they have not proved their case,” Judge Andrew Borrok told a Parlux lawyer after the verdict was announced. “You are excused.”

JAY-Z had had a lawsuit over “Gold Jay-Z” for nearly six years, which he launched in 2013 through a partnership with Parlux.

Parlux claimed the rapper would do a series of events to promote Gold through “Good Morning America” ​​and an in-store appearance at Macy’s, but that he “never appeared in person.”

“I did a lot for the launch of Gold Jay-Z,” JAY-Z said during his testimony in the Manhattan Supreme Court last month. “You tried me for something I didn’t do.”

The jury was guided by arguments from JAY-Z’s attorney who questioned why he would associate his name with a product he wanted to fail.

“I want to thank the judges, especially in these difficult times,” said JAY-Z after his win.
