Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Jay Z Buys Ace of Spades Champagne Brand

Pour it up, pour it up! It has been announced that Jay Z has purchased the Armand de Brignac (aka”Ace of Spades“) champagne brand!

According to Billboard, the rapper and entrepreneur acquired the brand from New York-based Sovereign Brands, which announced the sale in a statement this week. “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,” the company said in a statement.

A bottle of Ace of Spades can go for $300 at its lowest but can go as high as $200,000, for actual 30-liter bottles made of gold!

Though the terms of the deal and Jay’s company name weren’t disclosed, a spokesperson for Sovereign told the New York Times in an emailed statement that the Brooklyn native “made us an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.”

I respect Jay’s hustle so much.  I can’t say I’ll be popping any Ace of Spades bottles anytime soon, but I’m sure a bunch of his celebrity friends will! Congrats to him on this new venture!

As seen above, the mansion is a work in progress, as Kim and Kanye are having the present mansion gutted to make room for a 14,000-square-foot house. The new home will be an Italian-style villa  completely with a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool. Only the best for this power couple!

Can I just ask though, Kim? While you and Kanye are doing all of this, when exactly are you going to be legally free from Kris Humphries? Something to think about before this baby comes…
