SHAWN 'JAY-Z' CARTER's Rocawear clothing company is suing a California store for selling counterfeit jewellery bearing the logo of the fashion brand.
The lawsuit, filed last Wednesday (25Apr07) in Los Angeles' District Court, is looking to ban My Treasures in Redondo Beach from selling the illegal jewellery, according to AllHipHop.com.
The hip-hop mogul sold the successful Rocawear brand to Iconix Brand Group for a staggering $204 million (GBP105 million) last month (Mar07), but still retains management rights.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
