Jay Z and his long-time friend and co-author dream hampton were recently named in a lawsuit accusing them of stealing concepts for Jay’s best selling memoir, Decoded.
According to court documents found by All Hip Hop, Patrick White is suing Jay, dream and Random House Publishing claiming they somehow gained access to his computer and stole elements of a book he was working on and used them for Decoded.
The suit alleges:
“The book contains various expressions/colors/phrases, which correlates to my work. After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author, I got no reply.”
Patrick is seeking damages for copyright infringement and invasion of privacy.
