Jay-Z To Receive Nearly $7M in Royalties from Perfume Company Judgement

Jay-Z will receive $6.78 million in unpaid royalties, including interest from his lawsuit with Parlux Fragrances, which partnered with the rapper in 2013 to launch its “Gold Jay-Z” cologne.

The New York Post reports Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Andrew Borrok ordered the perfume company to pay the amount.

Parlux sued Jay in January of 2016, accusing him and his S. Carter Enterprises of costing the company millions by breaching the terms of their agreement. Among the claims were that Jay refused to show up to events to promote the cologne.

Back in November 2021, a Manhattan jury cleared Jay in his trial with Parlux, after jurors found that the hip-hop mogul was not liable for the $67.6 million in requested damages. The jury also rejected Hov’s roughly $6 million countersuit over unpaid royalties.

“We’ve been awarded and will be receiving the money as we should,” Jay’s lawyer Alex Spiro told the outlet.

Parlux has filed an appeal on Borrok’s ruling.
