Few were aware that they knew each other and had an existing working relationship, but the fact is that Fedez and the sprinter Marcell Jacobs would be at loggerheads. This was revealed by the world champion, winner of gold at the Tokyo Olympics in the 100 meters, in a long interview with The print during which he explained that, in 2018, his interests were represented by the company managed by Fedez and his mother Annamaria Berrinzaghi, Doom Entertainment. «I expected that being close to him would give visibility, but they have never developed a project there. I expected them to be ready for the result, but instead I won in Tokyo and they wrote to me 24 hours later. They were at the beach and they didn’t give a damn,” Jacobs said, not stopping there.

«By contrast, when I found myself in front of people who promised money and numbers, I trusted. In a few months I realized that they told me how I am not. There was little transparency, said the champion who, in October 2021, decided, due to “the poor promotion carried out by the agency”, to terminate the contract and sign with the London-based Nextthing. The Italian company, however, did not take it well, issuing a press release in which it clarified “that such conduct by Jacobs is baseless and therefore unlawful”, defining the termination “instrumental and unfounded” and announcing that he had appealed to the Court of Milan “to have the athlete’s breach ascertained urgently” and to ascertain “his consequent liability for compensation”.

In short, the legal battle between Fedez and Marcell Jacobs is still ongoing, even if the latter seems to have taken the matter philosophically: «Beatings are needed, in life blows are always necessary, several times. When everything seems easy you don’t enjoy anything and the moment you fall you hurt yourself, if you get hit you avoid making the same mistake again. I didn’t think it was difficult to represent myself.”

We have tried to contact Doom to have a contradiction but, for the moment, it has not arrived.
