Jay Z Purchases High-End Champagne Company, Ace Of Spades
“All this Ace Of Spades I drink just to p”…purchase?
Today, Soverign Brands announced that it sold it’s interest in Armand de Brignac, better known as Ace of Spades champagne, to a “new company” run by Jay Z, as per a New York Post report. The following is an excerpt from Soverign’s official statement.
We are proud to announce that Sovereign Brands, a New York-based wine and spirits company owned by the Berish family, has sold its interest in the Armand de Brignac (‘Ace of Spades’) Champagne brand to a new company led by the globally renowned Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that even occasionally listens to Jay Z’s music, or reads his several-times-a-month news headlines. He’s been helping to popularize the high-end liquor, which starts at $300 a bottle, since he released his video for Kingdom Come‘s “Show Me What You Got” in 2006. It’s the liquor of choice at several of the venues he owns and is affiliated with, namely the 40/40 club and the luxury suites at The Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets, the NBA team Hov previously owned a percentage of.
The “new company” that Jay will use to house Ace of Spades has yet to be disclosed, but it’s more than likely a division of his quickly growing Roc Nation empire. What began as an ambitious project 6 years ago has become an expansive media management and publishing company, sports agency, with divisions that focus on merchandise, touring, and more. Ace of Spades isn’t Jay’s only current liquor affiliation however. D’USSE, which he famously poured in one of the three Grammys he won at the 2013 award show, has been publicly endorsed by Jay Z for the past two years. He recently opened his verse on Beyonce‘s hit single, “Drunk In Love,” with the words, “That D’USSE is the sh*t, if I D’USSE so myself.”

FRENCH MONTANA BUYS DIDDY AN ESCALADE FOR HIS 45TH BIRTHDAY
Can’t stop, won’t stop. To celebrate his 45th birthday, Diddy went all out and threw a pajama party at his Beverly Hills mansion on Tuesday night. Some of his famous friends including Nelly, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, and Bow Wow dressed in their lounge wear to party with Puff.
French Montana and Khloe Kardashian surprised the Bad Boy mogul with a lavish whip. “I got a little surprise for my brother,” French told party goers while directing everyone to the front of the house where a pearl white Cadillac Escalade was waiting in the driveway.
“Oh my God. What the f**k is this?” said a shocked Puff. “You know only ni**as from Harlem get pearl cars.”
He hugged French and jumped in the driver’s seat of his newride. “Can’t buy a ni**a a motherfu**in’ Ferrari, a Bentley, a Rolls-Royce—ni**a got that. I ain’t got a pearl motherfu**in’ Cadillac,” declared Puff.
Diddy also spoiled himself with a G5 jet, while Cassie baked an apple pie for her man. “Don’t know or care to know what my life would be like without you,” she told him. “Beyond happy and grateful to have you in it.”
Leaking sinks force Virgin Australia plane landing
A Virgin Australia aircraft bound for Sydney was forced to turn back to Los Angeles and land after sinks on board leaked.
Passengers claimed the stench was “unbearable” and said human waste had reached the aisles, however the airline denied this.
Virgin Australia said the flight was turned around for the comfort of those onboard.
The airline said safety of passengers was never called into question.
“In accordance with standard operating procedures, the captain made the decision to return to port as a precautionary measure after two of the sinks on board were leaking,” the airline said in a statement.
It did not reveal what had caused the problem.
A resident of Christchurch, where the plane was headed after Sydney, said the smell was “unbearable”.
“We could see it [human waste] it go through the aisles, like it was very obvious,” Julia Malley told New Zealand radio.
However, Virgin has denied there was leakage from the toilets onboard.
“The onboard toilets operate on a completely separate drainage system,” the airline told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“As the issue was with the aircraft sink, and not the toilets, there was no incident of leaked human waste.”

Ryan Phillippe Talks Making “Terrible” Movie With 50 Cent
Actor Ryan Phillippe recently presented his directorial debut with the movie Catch Hell. While speaking with the L.A. Times about his new film, Phillippe discussed having to appear in struggling independent pictures in recent years. The star of Cruel Intentions and Crash pointed out one picture that also featured a well-known rapper-turned-actor as a least favorite of his.
“I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent,” said Phillippe. “It was just a situation I didn’t want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business.”
The film was called Setup and also featured Bruce Willis and Randy Couture. The movie was released straight to video in 2011 via 50’s Cheetah Vision production company.
Phillippe revealed the experience of working on Setup partially inspired Catch Hell which is about a past-his-prime actor forced to do a poorly financed indie movie. Unlike real life, the events in Catch Hell take a much more terrible turn for the worse.
“I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years,” said Phillippe. “And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed.”
