Original Copy Of Jay-Z's Videotaped Testimony In Perfume Battle To Be Destroyed

Rap star Jay-Z has lost a bid to end a "Spanish Inquisition" in a battle with a perfume company.

Parlux Fragrances filed an $18 million lawsuit against Jay-Z in January of 2017.

Parlux Fragrances claims Jay-Z, real name Shawn Corey Carter, backed out on an agreement to promote a cologne called Gold.

Jay-Z filed a countersuit, claiming Parlux Fragrances failed to pay...

The lawsuit escalated in 2018 when lawyers for Parlux Fragrances demanded the rapper turn over his calendar.

They also wanted the rapper videotaped for a deposition which they claimed invoked memories of the "Spanish Inquisition."

Earlier this week, a judge issued a ruling in the case to address Jay-Z's privacy concerns.

Jay-Z does not want to be filmed answering sensitive questions under oath, which could eventually make its way into the hands of the hungry press.

A judge has ordered Jay-Z to be videotaped as he testifies, noting all parties are being held to a strict confidentiality agreement barring anyone from ever handing over the file.

Additionally, each party will receive a watermarked copy of the videotape to identify the leaker.

Any unwatermarked copies will be destroyed as a safeguard against potential leaks.
