Snoop Dogg sues beer firm over sale of brand

US rapper Snoop Dogg is suing beer-maker Pabst Brewing, saying the firm owes him money from the sale of the company and its beer line last year.

In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, the rapper is seeking 10% of the net sales paid to Pabst for its Colt 45 malt beer line in the sale.

Snoop Dogg had signed a three-year deal to endorse the beer line in 2011.

Under his contract, he was to receive a portion of the sale of the brand if Pabst sold it before January 2016.
