Jay-Z’s nightclub 40/40 was shut down last week after 69 health code violations were found by New York officials.  Specific citations included the kitchen’s walk-in fridge being kept at an unsafe temperature for meat, and the kitchen staff using unsanitary methods to prepare food. The club had just re-opened a day earlier after being closed for 10 months during which $10 million in refurbishments were made.  After the health code issues were addressed, the club opened again over the weekend, although the kitchen managers are set to attend a court hearing next month.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce are still reveling in celebrity news headlines for the recent birth of their daughter Blue Ivy Carter, who became the youngest person in history to have a Billboard-topping single after being featured on Jay-Z’s single “Glory.”
