Jay-Z and fragrance firm's lawsuits thrown out by Supreme Court


Jay-Z and fragrance firm Parlux’s respective lawsuits against each other have been thrown out by the Supreme Court.

Parlux Fragrances, Inc., a luxury fragrance manufacturer, had filed to sue the music mogul over breach of contract, and he subsequently submitted a countersuit, but both were rejected at a court in Manhattan on Wednesday (10.11.21) over a lack of evidence of the claims.

The original papers were filed in January 2016, with Parlux claiming the ’99 Problems’ rapper had allegedly not completed promo for their “Gold Jay-Z” cologne line.

While the 51-year-old record producer – who is married to Beyonce – had claimed he was owed royalties.

Jay-Z attended the trial last month, and upon learning the verdict, he said: “I’d like to express my gratitude to the jury, especially during these difficult times.”

Meanwhile, the ‘Crazy in Love’ star recently caused a stir after he quit Instagram after just a day.

Jay-Z joined the platform last Tuesday (02.11.21), but, despite amassing more than 1.8 million followers, his account was later removed.

During his brief time on Instagram, the hip-hop legend only followed his wife, and his first post and Instagram Story a countdown and poster for the release of the new Netflix movie ‘The Harder They Fall’.

Jay-Z serves as a producer for the film – which launched on the streaming platform last Wednesday (03.11.21) – and also wrote the music.

The Western – which premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last month – stars Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz, Regina King, Delroy Lindo and more.

As well as only following each other on Instagram, Jay-Z and have collaborated musically, toured together, and, most recently, joined forces for Tiffany & Co.’s About Love campaign.

The couple – who have daughter Blue Ivy, nine, and four-year-old twins and Sir together – recently pledged $2 million to fund college scholarships as they teamed up with Tiffany & Co. to fund places at five historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) via their charities BeyGOOD and Shawn Carter Foundation.
