The 40-year-old rapper is a spokesman for the underwear company Frigo, which originally hired the 41-year-old retired Yankees player.
Derek is currently in the middle of a multi-million-dollar lawsuit with the brand over a three-year deal after he didn’t attend the U.S. launch. 50 Cent was tapped in his place.
According to TMZ, Frigo owner Mathias Ingvarsson claims in court documents that Derek said 50 Cent was too “urban” for the brand.
“Wow, guess I’m not a Yankees fan anymore. 😳 LETS GO METS? Man you can’t trust nobody these day.smh #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO,” 50 captioned an Instagram photo of Derek.
