Why Jay Z Could Be In Trouble For Giving Robinson Cano A $34k Watch

Published

Jay Z could be in trouble with the MLB for giving one of his clients a pricey gift. The rapper is under investigation by the Major League Baseball Players Association for presenting his Roc Nations Sport’s Robinson Cano with a $33,900 watch for his birthday.

Cano posted the gift on his Instagram account, which brought it to the association’s attention. The Yankees star received a limited-edition Shawn Carter Classic Fusion watch by Hublot during an October 22 party for his 31st birthday.

According to ESPN, Section 5(B)(5)(a) of the Players Association regulations states: “No Player Agent or Applicant shall provide, cause to be provided or promise to provide, any money or any other thing of value to any player, or any person related to or associated with such player, the purpose of which is to induce or encourage such player to use or continue to use any person’s or firm’s services as a Player Agent, Representative, or Draft Advisor.”

There is a clause allowing players to receive gifts from their agents, but any gift exceeding $500 must be disclosed to the union in writing. Jay Z could be subject to unspecified discipline if he is found in violation or the regulation.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
