A fight went down at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in New York last March and it’s looking to cause problems for the mogul.
According to TMZ, Jose Irizarry is suing the club due to a lack of security and the venue not being able to control the crowd, which led to him being injured. The man claims that he was in the club when a fight broke out that led to him being hit in the head. With medical bills and lost wages, he expects the venue to reimburse him. Jay-Z is not being named in the lawsuit, meaning the legal battle would be against management.
Irizarry’s attorney believes his client was caught in the middle of a fight. TMZ has since released security footage of a woman stealing the Louis Vuitton bag Irizarry had filled with $40,000 in cash, a $15,000 diamond bracelet, a $75,000 championship ring and more.
