Jelly Roll is on the receiving end of a lawsuit alleging trademark infringement over his stage name.

Rolling Stone reports that Kurt L. Titchenell has filed suit against Jelly Roll, whose real name is Jason DeFord. Titchenell is the leader of a Pennsylvania-based dance band called Jellyroll, and in his suit, he states that his band has used that name since March of 1980, more than four years before DeFord was born. They received a trademark in August of 2010, and renewed that trademark most recently in December of 2019.

The band Jellyroll has performed in the Northeast and the Delaware Valley for decades, according to the suit, in a series of public and private events, including a 2007 invitation from then-President George W. Bush to perform at the White House.
