    Derek Jeter didn't want his underwear line 'too gay,' lawsuit says

    Derek Jeter arrives at the RevolutionWear's FRIGO Launch Pop-Up Experience in November
    Derek Jeter reportedly didn’t want his luxury underwear line pitched to the gay market.
    The bombshell allegation was made in a complaint against the retired Yankee icon filed in Delaware by Swedish underwear company Frigo, TMZ.com reported Tuesday.
    “(Jeter) demanded that (Frigo) not market to the gay community and states that he did not want the Frigo brand to be ‘too gay,’ ” the paperwork reportedly reads.
    Jeter, 41, has been locked in a megabucks legal battle with Frigo over claims he backed out of a deal to promote the swanky skivvies that sell for up to $100 a pop at stores including Neiman Marcus.
    He’s being sued by the company in Sweden and filed his own lawsuit against Frigo, also known as RevolutionWear, in Delaware last month.
    Frigo’s filing answered Jeter’s sealed lawsuit and included the latest counterclaim, a court source confirmed to the Daily News.

    A rep for Jeter declined comment. But Jeter reportedly told TMZ that Frigo’s claims are “categorically false” and he’s disgusted by the accusations.
    Frigo previously alleged in its Swedish lawsuit that Jeter also had a problem with rapper 50 Cent acting as a brand ambassador.
    The five-time World Series champion reportedly believed 50 Cent’s involvement would make the brand “too urban.”
    “Wow, guess I’m not a Yankees fan anymore. ?? LETS GO METS?” the Queens-born rapper said in a response posted on Instagram that has since been deleted.

    Derek Jeter allegedly didn't want his line of underwear to be "too gay" or "too urban."
    “As a major investor, current stockholder and lender to the company, I am disgusted by (CEO Mathias) Ingvarsson’s decision to make these false allegations against me in the press, instead of attempting to work out our business dispute in private,” Jeter said in a statement to The News last month.

    A lawyer for RevolutionWear stood by the company’s legal claims Tuesday.
    “Derek Jeter defrauded RevolutionWear, blatantly breached the fiduciary duties he owed to it and utterly failed to perform his contract with the company,” lawyer Joseph Tacopina said in a statement.
    “According to RevolutionWear, Jeter’s misconduct caused the company to incur losses of at least $30 million, which the company is seeking as damages in this suit, along with punitive damages for his fraudulent conduct,” he said.

    Theres a store on Ninth Ave in Hells Kitchen that just sells Mens underwear and speedo like bathing suits. I guess its like the Victoria Secrets for gay guys. I can't imagine they sell enough of these to pay the rent..

    Derek Jeter's underwear line is called Frigo?
    Stern related because of Derek Frigo - guitarist from Enuf Z'nuf.

    Gotta figure those guys go through a lot of underwear - most of it spends most of its time in the washing machine.

    If he didn't want it marketed to fags he shouldn't put his name on it.

    I could see why he wouldn't want his name on a poster with two twinks in his underwear with boners. Goo for him!
