Ellerbee Demetrius claimed he deserved a $5 million (£3.1 million) pay out from the hip-hop star after reportedly working with Jeezy from 1995 to help launch his music career.

The plaintiff alleged he was owed money from at least four of the rapper's albums, even though Jeezy denied ever signing any deals with Demetrius.

The case went to trial in an Atlanta, Georgia court, but on Friday (30Oct15), the jury ruled against Demetrius, according to TMZ.com.
