Basketball Wives Producers Want Chris Bosh’s Footage Demand Shut Down
Miami Heat star Chris Bosh is set to battle it out in court with “Basketball Wives” producers, after they refused to hand over raw footage from the reality show featuring his baby mama.
Bosh and his baby mama Allison Mathis have been fighting for years in court over their daughter Trinity. The two finally reached a settlement agreement in the custody/support battle last year. However, the two are still battling each other in a civil lawsuit.
Back in 2011, Chris sued his baby mama, along with “Basketball Wives” production company Shed Media, claiming that producers and Allison – who was set to appear on the 3rd season of the show – were going to infringe on his trademark and publicity rights. He demanded the show not be allowed to utter his name and his baby mama banned from filming the show.
Mathis was eventually dropped from the show prior to the start of production. However, Allison counter-sued the NBA star claiming he ruined her deal without cause and accused him of lying to the show producers about her having signed a confidentiality clause.
A judge later dismissed Bosh’s lawsuit, but Allison’s case has been pending for five years, with both parties still battling it out over her claim he made her lose up to $250,000 by interfering with her TV deal. She demanded he be ordered to pay up the money she lost from the deal. Chris denied he caused her to lose the “Basketball Wives” deal and said he was only looking out for his own best interest.
