Derek Jeter allegedly backed out of a deal to promote a fancy male underwear line ... all because he felt 50 Cent would make the company too "urban" for his taste ... so says a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports.
Jeter has been sued in Sweden over his involvement with Frigo -- an undie company specializing in comfort for your package.
According to the suit, Jeter signed a 3-year deal to be a director of the company in 2011 and agreed to participate in major publicity events.
But things went south in 2013 -- first, Jeter allegedly told Frigo he didn't want his involvement with the company to be public during the U.S. launch.
As a result of Jeter's alleged reneging, the majority owner of Frigo claims the company lost close to $30 MILLION in value ... and he personally wants Jeter to fork over roughly $4.7 million to help make things right.
Ingvarsson wants to take the case to arbitration -- which would keep the messy details out of open court.
