According to MTO News and various sports accounts on social media, the 49-year-old is in the process of purchasing up to a 5% interest in the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Interesting. Art Rooney II told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in July that David Tepper’s estimated 5% ownership stake remains in limbo. Rooney said “We’re going to wind up with a couple new shareholders." #Steelers https://t.co/RlVaqsEbKm— Blitzburgh (@Steel_Curtain4) August 19, 2019
The Pittsburgh Steelers will remain majority-owned by the Rooney Family and Art Rooney II, but Jay-Z may soon be part of the organization.
It's rumored Jay-Z is paying between $100 and $200M in the deal
