Interior Designers Said Chris & Adrienne Bosh Screwed Them Out of $2 Million
NBA star Chris Bosh may have his medical secrets about his recurrent blood clots revealed as part of his breach of contract case against his old business partners.
Officials from MJB Design Group, an interior designer to the stars, sued the Bosh’s because they claim the couple tried to weasel out of paying for nearly $2 million in decorating work because the player’s poor health means they are running out of money.
In court docs filed Jan. 9, MJB Design Group said it planned to call as witnesses “any any all of C. Bosh’s healthcare providers involved in the examination, diagnosis, treatment or care of C. Bosh related to blood clots.” The company also plan to depose Chris and Adrienne too.
MJB Design Group said Chris and Adrienne tried to get out of paying for the firm’s interior decorating services on their rural Texas mansion because Chris’ continued blood clots mean it’s not clear if he’ll ever get back to work.
MJB Design said it expected to make $1.6 million for decorating the Boshes new home on 47 acres in Prosper, Tx, outside Dallas. Instead, the company claimed as Chris’ health continued to fail because of a series of blood clots, and when a homebuilder announced it was constructing thousands of homes nearby, the Boshes stopped paying.
“Upon information and belief, the Boshes refusal to pay to MJB the amounts due by the Boshes to MJB is based upon, among other things, C. Bosh’s health, C. Bosh’s professional uncertainty (and) the Boshes refusal to invest funds necessary to complete construction of the project…” MJB Design’s suit reads.
The firm – which specializes in decorating high-end homes – sued the Boshes for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, fraud and negligent representation in U.S. Federal Court in Fort Lauderdale, according to documents obtained by BOSSIP.
The Miami Heat player and his wife have denied everything, and the case is now headed for trial. This week, each side submitted lists of witnesses that they planned to call, and MJB revealed it court docs it planned to hammer home it’s theory that Chris’ poor health meant the couple had to break the contract.
Bosh’s blood clots have kept him largely sidelined on the Miami Heat over the last two seasons. The player failed his last physical in September because of the medical issue.
MJB Design wants its money, plus interest and lawyer’s fees.
