Many consider Jay-Z as one of the most legendary rappers in the Hip-Hop world and there are many good reasons for that. On top of his musical prowess, Hov is also a smart businessman and is worth over a billion dollars for good reason. He also realizes that people love to gamble. It seems Jay-Z was almost hacked as well.
As reported earlier, Right after LL Cool J got his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, Jay-Z also followed suit. The legendary artist was inducted by former president Barack Obama and Dave Chappelle.
According to a report by Complex, the rapper was urged by the FBI to delete his emails as he was at the risk of imminent hacks. It was said that the FBI reached out to Jay-Z at some point to inform him there was an “imminent hack” on his email account.
The FBI suggested to Jay-Z that he should delete his emails. No further details about the hack were given. This news comes amid the coverage of a lawsuit filed against Jay-Z. The lawsuit was filed by fragrance brand Parlux for breach of contract in 2016.
It was said that Jay-Z even hired an ex-police officer to spy on Donald Loftus, the former CEO of the company. Jay-Z is expected to be called as a witness in the trial. It is unlikely this case will be ending anytime soon. We will keep you updated on this ongoing case here at Thirsty.
