LeBron James Sued For Allegedly Stealing Barbershop Show Idea

LeBron James Sued For Allegedly Stealing Barbershop Show Idea

It was just a few weeks ago when Lebron James made a big fuss about Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide basically stealing his idea of doing a barbershop show and pretty much forced their hand and made them change the name of the show as a result.

The suit claims that over a period of two years, Adventure Enterprises engaged in "numerous talks" with UNINTERRUPTED in order to "flesh out the idea and figure out a strategy for pitching it to various networks", according to details of the suit published by TMZ Sports. The company argues James and UNINTERRUPTED instead split off to pitch the show on their own and removed Adventure Enterprises from the process entirely. Then, according to its lawsuit, James cut the company out of the picture and created "The Shop", which features him at a barbershop discussing various topics.

The tabloid said the company claims it had several talks with LeBron's company, UNINTERRUPTED, about the idea.

Adventure Enterprises said they received assurances from James that the webisode was a one-time only thing. They're also looking for "some serious cash", the gossip site reports.

The only complication is that the site seems to list normal post office hours-some locations offer extended hours on Tax Day. The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) reminds taxpayers the tax filing deadline for 2018 is tomorrow, Tuesday, April 17.

TMZ Sports says Adventure Enterprises is also looking to sue LeBron's partner, Maverick Carter.

The debut episode of "The Shop" featured James, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, rapper 2 Chainz, retired NBA player Charles Oakley and others in a barbershop and was released during the 2017 NBA Finals.

Apparently it did happen again, because another segment aired on ESPN no less. The lawsuit is a publicity stunt that has no merit, according to the source who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the lawsuit.
