Allison Mathis Sued By Baby Daddy Chris Bosh Over Basketball Wives
Maybe Chris Bosh thinks Miss Mathis has a secret he doesn’t want to revealed on the show?
When it comes to lawsuits on the mother of your child, normally I am against it, but seeing how the show Basketball Wives is presented I can see why Bosh would want someone who is neither a wife and/or involved with a basketball player be allowed on the show to slander him.
Here are the details of the lawsuit.
The suit says Mathis was hired to appear in the third season of the VH1 reality show and wants to use it to become a TV star. Bosh seeks damages and an injunction to block her and the media company from trademark infringement by using his name and disclosing private facts about his life.
“Though the reality television show is titled, ‘Basketball Wives,’ the featured women in the show are not the current wives of NBA players,” the lawsuit says. “Instead, the show follows the lives of women who are dating or who dated NBA basketball players or who were formerly married to NBA players. “
It says the show, “provides these women with a vehicle and worldwide platform” to use the names of players without permission for commercial gain.
“Defendant Mathis is attempting to promote her own commercial brand and become a television personality and/or celebrity by exploiting her former relationship with plaintiff,” says the lawsuit.
Can’t say that I disagree with any of the claims of Bosh’s lawyer, the question begs does it have a legal leg to stand on. Can you truly stop someone from being a show and talk about a past relationship that you acknowledge took place.
While Bosh is at it he needs to sue ESPN for continually showing this graphic.
