Jay-Z Set To Give Filmed Deposition In $18M Lawsuit With Fragrance Company

A New York judge ruled that JAY-Z has to answer some questions about his ongoing legal battle against a fragrance company. 

According to the legal documents obtained by Billboard, Jay has been in and out of court over the logistics of the deposition. Originally, the rapper was supposed to subject himself to questioning on Aug. 27. He canceled when he found out the deposition would be filmed. JAY-Z even pointed out that “depositions of other high-profile celebrities have been leaked” and he did not want to hinder his brand.

Because filming JAY’s responses is necessary to the case, Judge Andrew Borrok came up with a solution. He ruled that the deposition will take place on Friday. Each party will get three watermarked copies of the tapes, they will not be allowed to upload this footage to their computers or iCloud. The judge also instructed the court to destroy the original copies once the watermarked tapes are received. 

The fragrance company by the name of Parlux filed lawsuit against JAY-Z back in 2016. The company claims that the rapper was supposed to promote their Gold Jay Z men’s fragrance. The company accuses Jay of breaching their contract and is seeking a return of the advance payment and royalties. Parlux also wants $18 million in punitive damages.

JAY-Z and his team have been refusing the legal advances from Parlux, but he was unable to avoid the deposition.
