Young Jeezy

Fires Back at Alleged BFF

... I Don't Owe You $5 Mil!!!

2/17/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217_young-jeezy_gettyYoung Jeezy is a rap superstar ... so when some guy in Georgia sued him for MILLIONS -- claiming he's entitled to half Jeezy's budding empire -- the rapper had four words ... WHAT YOU TALKIN' BOUT????

Jeezy was sued last year for $5 million by a man named Ellerbee Demetrius, who claimed he helped make Jeezy's career and is now owed money from at least 4 of his albums, including  "The Inspiration" and "The Recession" ... both of which went platinum.

Ellerbee claims he has been best buds with Jeezy since 1995 and after meeting him at boot camp, the two formed a couple of record companies together, released a few mix-tapes, and spent their time nurturing Jeezy's career.

Not only that, Ellerbee says when Jeezy hit the big time with Def Jam, he executive produced those studio albums.

The problem ... Jeezy says Ellerbee is FULL OF S**T.

In fact, in recently filed legal docs ... Jeezy denies being Ellerbee's best friend (sad), denies forming ANY music companies with him -- and says he 100% NEVER entered into any agreements (written or oral) to share HALF his profits.

The case is still pending.

Aayyyy! Jeezy doesn't owe this dude shiet. Just another bitter jealous friend that wants what he doesn't have, jealous that Jeezy made it big and he didn't.

Does delusional mean anything to you Ellerbee? And after how many successful albums and songs did you decide Jeezy was your best friend and you had made him what he was. Better have some paper to back up your claims or this will be thrown out of court.

I'm not real big on rappers but I call bull**** on this one. Young Jeezy seems to have always handled himself well and seems to be financially responsible.

Can you imagine being the judge or lawyer that has to be in court listening to this idiot explain his side of the story...all ghetto fabulous and thig ebonic tones. Save it for the ignorant phucks that buy your music not our court system.
