NBA Star & Baby Mama Battling Over Reality Show Lawsuit
NBA star Chris Bosh has demanded his baby mama hand over years of tax returns and explain all her sources of income since 2009 in hopes it will build his defense in their nasty years-long legal battle.
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.
Chris sued his baby mama five years ago, along with “Basketball Wives” production company Shed Media. He claimed 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.
Mathis was eventually dropped from the show prior to the start of production. However, Mathis 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 Mathis’ lawsuit has been pending since 2011 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.
The lawsuit is heading to trial in the near future and both parties are preparing their case for the courtroom.
Recently, the NBA star headed back to court and demanded his baby mama hand over all checks she was issued by Shed Media for her participation in Basketball Wives back in 2011.
Further, he wants all copies of her federal, state and local tax returns for the years 2009 through 2015.
Bosh also wants his baby mama to turn over information on all her sources of financial income for 2009-2015, including salaries, wages, rents, windfalls or gifts.
Mathis hasn’t responded to Bosh’s demands.
