Exclusive Young Jeezy is a rap superstar … so when some guy in Georgia sued him for MILLIONS — claiming he”s entitled to half Jeezy”s budding empire — the rapper had four words … WHAT YOU TALKIN” BOUT
Jeezy was sued last year for $5 million by a man named Ellerbee Demetrius, who claimed he helped make Jeezy”s career and is now owed money from at least 4 of his albums, including “The Inspiration” and “The Recession” … both of which went platinum.
Ellerbee claims he has been best buds with Jeezy since 1995 and after meeting him at boot camp, the two formed a couple of record companies together, released a few mix-tapes, and spent their time nurturing Jeezy”s career.
Not only that, Ellerbee says when Jeezy hit the big time with Def Jam, he executive produced those studio albums.
The problem … Jeezy says Ellerbee is FULL OF S**T.
In fact, in recently filed legal docs … Jeezy denies being Ellerbee”s best friend (sad), denies forming ANY music companies with him — and says he 100% NEVER entered into any agreements (written or oral) to share HALF his profits.
The case is still pending.
