Representatives acting for rapper Jay-Z have denied allegations his 40/40 CLUB owes thousands of dollars to building contractors.

The denial follows claims that two companies have sued the 03 BONNIE + CLYDE star for non-payment of work already done, with a third firm considering doing the same.

However, 40/40 spokesman RON BERKOWITZ says a suit filed by AMERIBUILD CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT for $8,114.59 (GBP5,072) was settled last week (ends07NOV03).

He dismisses the other claim as being false.
