Remember years ago when a sports writer outed Jay Z for shacking up with former Kansas City running back Larry Johnson in a posh condo? Well, Jay Z might be at it again.
According to multiple reports, Jigga is under investigation for gifting New York Yankees star second baseman Robinson Cano with an expensive wristwatch for his birthday. Jay Z signed the 31-year-old star to his Roc Nation Sports agency earlier this year. Now he is under investigation for violating league rules.
None of this would be a problem if Cano didn't run to his Instagram to floss the expensive timepiece like a groupie.
"Thanks to the ROC NATION my birthday gift," Cano wrote in the caption.
Within minutes, the sports world was abuzz about how Jay Z, who is married to singer Beyonce, was sprung over yet another male athlete.

The Bleacherreport.com notes that The baseball league's players association is investigating whether Jay Z was in violation of the union's agent regulations covering gifts for athletes. In every level of sports there are rules that players and agents must follow. Of course, Jay Z thinks he's above all that.
The rap mogul gifted Cano with the $33,000 watch at Cano's recent birthday celebration in Belgium, per ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick.
Crasnick points out a clause in the contract that states players cannot receive gifts from sports agents in excess of $500 and if a gift exceeds that amount it would have to be disclosed to the union in writing.
Maybe Cano thought posting the watch on Instagram was sufficient?
If found guilty of committing the violation, Jay Z could face undisclosed disciplinary action.
