Rapper/entrepreneur/club owner/Yankees fan Jay-Z, along with his business partner, is suing Red Sox star David Ortiz. In a lawsuit filed yesterday in Manhattan Federal Court, the two claimed Ortiz named his Santo Domingo nightclub after Jigga's 40/40 chain of clubs (which are located in NYC, Atlantic City and Vegas). MyFox5 reports that Ortiz's club, called Forty-Forty, is allegedly named after hitting 40 homers and stealing 40 bases in one season. 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 before he opened his Infringing Forty/Forty club."
