According to the June 13th lawsuit filed in United States District Court, Patrick White is claiming that his personal computer was “compromised, resulting in my personal work to be used in Jay Z’s book “Decoded” which was released in 2010.”
He alleges, “The book contains various expressions/colors/phrases, which correlates to my work. After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author (Jay Z), I got no reply.”
White is seeking damages for copyright infringement and invasion of property, reports AllHipHop.com.
Co-author Dream Hampton and publishing firm Random House were also named in the suit.
*Jill Scott is “in a good place” after losing more than 50 lbs., she tells Ebony Magazine.
The Grammy winner and mother to 2-year-old Jett shows off her new slimmer figure on the magazine’s June cover.
Ebony contributor Dream Hampton sits down with Scott, who opens up about the knock-down, drag-out battle with her former fiancé, her move from Hidden Beach Records and her new mission to stay fit.
In her interview, she says has been working with a trainer who knows how to keep her workouts exciting. “Anything that makes me feel like I’m not working out,” Scott, 39, says. “We go outside and throw footballs, go for walks.”
