Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, also known as Snoop Dogg, is waging war against Pabst Brewing. According to legal documents filed this week, Snoop Dogg alleges he was not compensated for his promotion of Colt 45, a beer produced by the company. Pabst was sold last year for $700 million and Snoop believes he is entitled to some of that money. He is suing the company.
According to legal documents, Snoop Doog signed on with Pabst Brewing in 2011. The three-year contract involved Snoop promoting Blast, a fruit-flavored line of alcoholic drinks. According to the contract, Snoop was to receive a portion of the company’s sale if a sale was to occur during the contract’s life. That did happen, however, Snoop did not receive his cut of the sale price.
The details of the agreement, however, were not made public. Legal analysts say that the company is now owned by a group of investors, who seem to have little knowledge of Snoop Doggs agreement with Pabst. Pabst was contacted by the media, and they stated they were unaware of the lawsuit at the time of contact, but would look into the matter and hoped to speak with Snoop Dogg and his representatives to iron out an agreement.
