Pitbull has filed a lawsuit against a liquor manufacturer that he claims is trying to capitalize on his fame with a vodka drink.
According to TMZ , the complaint against E. & J. Winery & New Amsterdam Spirits Company focuses on the defendant’s vodka recipe that’s been dubbed “The Pit Bull.”
Pitbull argues the name of the drink confuses the marketplace. He further states the company is using his name, which has been trademarked since 2000, without his permission.
Pitbull notes that he has an endorsement deal with Voli vodka.
Mr. Worldwide seeks the profits E. & J. Winery & New Amsterdam Spirits Company allegedly has made off his name, as well as the removal of “Pit Bull” references from its website.
