Reports are circling that LeBron James‘ media company Uninterrupted may go toe to toe in a legal war with the University of Alabama after announcing their new show The Shop, which is identical to UA’s own Shop Talk.
The whole lawsuit maybe taking a huge turn, because someone is now accusing LeBron and his team of being the master minds that actually stole the idea in the first place.
According to TMZ sports, Adventure Enterprises filed a suit claiming that they were the ones who brought the idea of the show Shop Talk to King James, where celebrities come in to the barbershop to get a haircut while talking about their road to success.
Here is where it gets interesting…..
The company also alleges that they were in talks with LeBron’s company about the idea over the course of two years while they finesse and prepare to pitch the show to interested networks.
The lawsuit states James and his company basically cut Adventure Enterprises out the deal, starting The Shop out as a webisode. After allegedly confronting LeBron’s team, Adventure Enterprises were issued an apology, and were promised that the episode was just be a one-time thing, but soon after that another segment aired on ESPN.
Adventure Enterprises is reportedly trying to obtain an injunction that would keep LeBron and his reps from making any new episodes as well as asking for some major bank in return. Those close to the camp described the development as “totally frivolous and publicity seeking.”
People steal other people’s idea everyday B….
What’s your 2 cents?!
