Talking in a barbershop about sports is not a new concept that is why I found it so odd that LeBron would go so hard at Bama and Nick Saban for their barbershop.
Saban said he had never see LeBron’s show which is plausible since only 2 episodes have aired in two years.
Now, LeBron is being sued by a company who says they have actual proof LeBron stole their show.
Adventure Enterprises claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, it pitched a TV show to LeBron called “Shop Talk.” The backdrop for the show was a barbershop where celebs share their business success stories while getting a haircut.
The company claims it had numerous talks about the idea with LeBron’s company, UNINTERRUPTED, over a period of 2 years … fleshing out the idea and figuring out a strategy for pitching it to various networks.
According to the lawsuit, LeBron went and cut Adventure Enterprises out of the picture and created a ripoff show called “The Shop,” featuring LeBron in a barbershop with his contemporaries, “while engaging in an intimate conversation describing cultural experiences.” The show aired as a webisode.
Adventure Enterprises claims it confronted LeBron’s people, and what they got back was an apology and assurances it was a one-time deal and wouldn’t happen again.
Apparently it did happen again, because another segment aired on ESPN no less.
Adventure Enterprises is gunning for an injunction prohibiting LeBron and his company from producing any more episodes. They also want some serious cash.
The company is also suing LeBron’s business partner, Maverick Carter.
LeBron and Carter call the lawsuit frivolous and attention seeking. One would imagine if Adventure Enterprises is telling the truth they will have proof.
