Ryan Lochte is always saying "JEAH!" and he has filed documents to trademark it. Lochte already sells merchandise that says "Jeah!" on it, but now he wants to plaster his catchphrase all over “sunglasses, workout DVDs, gift cards, mugs, drinking glasses, trading cards, calendars, posters, swimsuits, swim caps, sports hats, and water bottles.”
MC Eiht, a 90s rapper, says that he coined the phrase in 1988. The hot swimmer was only 4 years old at the time!
Eiht tells TMZ: “Why try and trademark something his ass didn’t even create? I am mad that he isn’t giving me proper recognition for taking my saying. He is just disrespectful.”
The has been plans to send a cease and desist letter to Ryan, urging him to stop using his phrase. Ryan's manager says “Ryan has been using JEAH for years. This is the first I have heard of this claim by MC Eiht.”
I think Ryan should just throw some money at this bitter has been rapper guy to make the "Jeah" think officially happen. Jeah baby!
