Music mogul JAY-Z‘s 40/40 Club is catching some heat. New reports claim the rap star’s New York venue is getting sued over a recent brawl.
According to reports, a man has targeted 40/40 for not providing ample security when a fight broke out.
Jose Irizarry just filed suit against Hov’s New York-based sports bar and lounge, alleging the venue’s lack of adequate security combined with insufficient crowd control led to him getting seriously f***ed up during a melee. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Irizarry claims he was minding his business at 40/40 when all of a sudden a huge fight broke out between some attendants and security … and he became collateral damage. Irizarry says he was struck in the head and body during the brawl, and endured pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses that he wants the club to cover. (TMZ)
In March, buzz developed about boxer Jermall Charlo having nearly $150,000 taken from him at the 40/40 Club.
The assistant handed one of the women the bag — containing $40,000 in cash and $115,000 worth of bling — to hold during the unsanctioned sparring match, sources said. But when the tiff ended and the Texan light middleweight returned to his seat — he learned the woman had absconded with his pricey pack along with her four pals, according to cops. Police are now on the hunt for the bag thief and her entourage, who were all caught on security camera leaving the club. (New York Post)
Prior to the crime, Charlo shared a pic from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center arena.
Back in 2014, JAY-Z’s 40/40 Club made headlines over a bomb scare.
The NYPD’s Bomb Squad was dispatched to the Flatiron District Tuesday morning after a bizarre object that looked like an explosive was found in a phone booth outside a restaurant owned by rapper Jay Z, officials said. The device, described by police sources as “a flashing light with wires attached to two pieces of wood” was found in a booth outside the 40/40 Club on W. 25th St. and Broadway just after 7 a.m. (NY Daily News)
