TMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed by Pro Wrestler Diamond Dallas Page against Rapper Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella Records. Page claims Jay-Z and Rock-A-Fella ripped off his signature "Diamond Cutter Trademark," a hand sign which forms the shape of a diamond. The wrestler used to whip the crowd into a frenzy by flashing the sign.
The lawsuit alleges that Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella have been using Page's diamond sign "on sound recordings, videos and in photographs." Page wants a judge to prohibit Jay-Z and Rock-A-Fella from using the sign. He's also seeking unspecified damages.
The diamond sign has been used to market Page's T-shirts, hats, stationary, posters and Diamond Dallas Page action figures.
According to the lawsuit, Jay-Z repeatedly uses a gesture that resembles DDP's insignia in his music video 'Encore.' The hand sign is also featured in Kanye West's music video, 'Diamonds.' Both West and Jay-Z record on the Rock-A-Fella label.
We contacted Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella and received a "no comment."
