Snoop Dogg is suing the Pabst Brewing Company. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company was sold to a group of investors after the rapper’s endorsement contract had expired and he wants his fair share.
The clause reportedly says if the company is sold during the contract, which ran from 2011 to 2014, or up to two years after, he is supposed to receive “10 percent of the net price of such sale.” The company was sold a few months after the contract expired in January of 2014.
The brewing company, known for Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, has released a statement. “Pabst Brewing Company has been under new ownership and new management since November 2014,” the statement says. “We have not been contacted by Snoop Dogg or his representatives about this issue. We are investigating the matter and would be happy to talk to Snoop or his representatives to try to get to the bottom of this.”
