Following Jay-Z’s partnership with the NFL, many were speculating that he would become part-owner of a football team. The media mogul announced that he will serve as a consultant to the NFL on entertainment which included the halftime at the Super Bowl.

Now according to CBS Sports, Jay Z has no chance of getting his hands on an NFL team.

“Multiple people connected to NFL ownership and the league office have told CBS Sports that this TMZ-reported rumor is simply false, that there are no plans in place for the rap legend to become an NFL owner. Although it’s entirely possible that Jay-Z’s deal with the NFL represents the next step in a long-term play to eventually become an owner, that’s a far cry from it all happening right now. TMZ claimed that the acquisition will happen “soon.”

No word from Jay or Roc Nation as of yet.
