Jay-Z Drops Fried Chicken Suit Against Chef, Still Won’t Give His Laptop Back
Aw, dangit. Jay-Z dropped his lawsuit against his former personal chef Mike Shand over the fried chicken recipe he’d been developing for Hova’s 40/40 Club, and in doing so, ruined all of the jokes that we had planned for the lawsuit.
Not long after the New York Post reported that the main issue with the suit was less to do with the menu and more with the fact that Shand wouldn’t hand over his fried chicken seasoning, a secret blend of herbs and spices, the suit was quietly dropped.
Vik Pawar, who is Shand’s lawyer or something, somebody important or something, mentioned that his client was thinking about countersuing, because he wants more. “We still may sue the club for defamation of character and for the return of his possessions, including his laptop, which the club still has.”
We suggest that Shand not waste any more money on frivolous lawsuits, because no one in their right mind would believe that you were in the wrong for wanting to keep your own spice mix. Lawsuits are crazy, baby; don’t forget that Jay told you: get that dirt off your shoulder.
(Aaaaaand we’re done, forever. It’s the death of Jay-Z jokes on The Braiser — moment of silence.)
(You may still want that laptop, though.)
