Jay-Z Sits Courtside at Superdome, Cheers on Kentucky
Posted on Apr 2, 2012 in Sports
Jay-Z was spotted in the Superdome Saturday for the Final Four matchup between Louisville and Kentucky. Because Hova is close with basketball power broker William “Worldwide Wes” Wesley, a consultant for CAA who represents Kentucky head coach John Calipari, he has become a fan of Big Blue.
He attended a Wildcats tournament game last year, too, which resulted in the NBA fining him $50K for going into the team’s locker room — a violation of rules because of his stake in the Nets. Clutching the jersey of Kentucky forward (and New Jersey native) Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the hip-hop legend sat close to the Kentucky bench, not far from rabid Wildcats fan Ashley Judd and Nike founder Phil Knight. Other celebs in the crowd included Shaquille O’Neal and Tim Robbins.
