Red Sox player David Ortiz has opened a new nightclub in his native Dominican Republic, and a notable figure in the entertainment industry has a problem with it.

Rapper Jay-Z, who is heralded as a big Yankees fan, and his business partner Juan Perez are suing Ortiz over the name of his club, “Forty/Forty.” The name of Jay-Z’s clubs (he has multiple) is “40/40.” I guess Big Papi thought he was being clever when he just spelled out the digits, but apparently not.

The name “40/40” was chosen by the rapper because “the 40/40 club in baseball is as exclusive as it gets.” If we’re going by common logic it would make sense for Ortiz’s club to be called “40/2,” but I guess that’s just not as catchy.
