Chris Bosh sues ex-girlfriend over Basketball Wives reality showPosted by Inside Hoops
The VH1 reality show Basketball Wives mostly features ex-wives and ex-girlfriends, but it’s as close as TV gets to showcasing some of the women that have managed to link up with former or current NBA players.
There’s lots of broken relationships, though, and the next season of the show involves yet another one. The AP reports the following:
Miami Heat star Chris Bosh is suing the mother of his child for appearing on a reality TV show called “Basketball Wives,” which he said intrudes on his private life.
Bosh claims in a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles federal court that Allison Mathis and Shed Media are trying to unjustly enrich themselves by using Bosh’s name and intruding into his private affairs.
He acknowledges he and Mathis have a child together.
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.
The show is a guilty pleasure that some basketball fans definitely are watching.
