Sports news reports that Derek Jeter didn’t want his Frigo underwear line marketed to gays, but the former baseball star heavily denies such allegations.

You may have heard initial reports that the Yankees legend is being sued for $30 million by the brand after he allegedly backed out of a huge deal that involved him serving as a director of the company and doing publicity events for the brand. The guys at Frigo also said that Jeter threw a fit over the selection of rapper 50 Cent as a brand ambassador because he felt that it would make the brand “too urban.”

And just recently, the guys at Frigo has filed new court documents in Delaware. They stated, “[Jeter] demanded that [Frigo] not market to the gay community and states that he did not want the Frigo brand to be ‘too gay.'” It added that Jeter demanded the company stop making the undies “sporty” because it might harm his relationship with Nike.

“The Captain,” of course, has denied both claims.

Derek Jeter Answers To Alleged Underwear Feud With 50 Cent

Derek Jeter Answers To Alleged Underwear Feud With 50 Cent

50 cent for frigo men

Both sports and Hollywood news are reporting that baseball star Derek Jeter clashed with 50 Cent after the former allegedly tried to block the rapper from an underwear deal.

The news came after Frigo men filed a $30 million lawsuit against Jeter for backing out of a promotional agreement and even badmouthed 50 cent, calling him “too urban” to the company.

Jeter made sure he defended himself, however. Moments ago, he said the accusations were “categorically false” and that it makes “absolutely no sense” that he would be against 50 cent being the one of the brand’s ambassadors when he himself “facilitated the introductory meeting between 50 Cent and the company.”

“As a major investor, current stockholder and lender to the company, I am disgusted by [company CEO Mathias] Ingvarsson’s decision to make these false allegations against me in the press, instead of attempting to work out our business dispute in private.”

“[Company CEO Mathias Ingvarsson’s] statements are particularly malicious because he knew all along that I never agreed to be a spokesperson or ambassador for the brand, and that is confirmed in documents that Mr. Ingvarsson himself signed,” Jeter said in a public statement.

As for 50 Cent, he’s responded to the rumors on Instagram saying, “Wow guess I’m not a Yankees fan anymore. LETS GO METS?” He added, “Man you can’t trust nobody these day.smh.”
