50 Cent Slams Derek Jeter As Lawsuit Claims Ex-Yankee Called Him Too ‘Urban’

Frigo has filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit against Jeter, alleging that he backed out of a major deal with the brand. The reason he backed out? Frigo owner Mathias Ivarsson claims that Jeter didn’t like that 50 Cent had signed on with the brand, calling him too “urban,” reports TMZ.
Upon learning of the lawsuit and Jeter’s alleged remark found in the court documents, 50 Cent, otherwise known as Curtis Jackson, took to Instagram to slam the former Yankee’s shortstop – and to publicly switch New York baseball team allegiances.
“Wow, guess I’m not a Yankees fan anymore. ? LETS GO METS?” Jackson captioned his Instagram post. “Man you can’t trust nobody these day.smh #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO.”
Jeter had initially signed a three-year deal to be a director at Frigo and participate in the brand’s major publicity events as a spokesman, but backed out of the deal after two years. Frigo is seeking $4.7 million in damages.
Jeter has yet to comment on the case or his alleged remarks about 50 Cent.
