Jay-Z kicked off 2022 with a big victory in court against Parlux Fragrances. The company sued Hov claiming he didn’t uphold his end of their contract from a 2012 perfume deal and wanted $68 million in compensation. Parlux claimed Hov allegedly never promoted their joint fragrance “Gold By Jay-Z” and almost a decade later Parlux got their day in court and took the L.

Parlux Fragrances Ordered To Pay Jay-Z Nearly $7 Million In Back Royalties

Originally the counterclaim by Hov’s lawyer Alex Spiro wasn’t granted but thanks to the Appellate Division First Department appeal, Jay-Z was later granted a judgment of $4.5M.

According to Complex, the final number in royalties owed to Jay-Z has now surpassed the original amount. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Andrew Borrok on Thursday ordered the perfume company to pay Jay-Z $6.78 million in unpaid royalties, including interest. Let us not forget this amount is on top of all the legal fees they spent for a decade to even get to court. In the end, maybe they should have just dropped the suit because everything that could go wrong, went wrong for Parlux.
