Chris Bosh's ex girlfriend is taking him to court for allegedly keeping her off "Basketball Wives."
Miami Heat star Chris Bosh has some legal trouble brewing. His ex is taking him to court after he allegedly lied to producers to block her from her deal to star on the new season of VH1’s “Basketball Wives,” reports TMZ.
Allison Mathis, who is also the mother of Chris’ child, filed a lawsuit in Orlando saying he’s to blame for her being booted from the show after she’d already signed a contract and had begun taping episodes. Chris allegedly told the show’s producers Allison was under court order not to appear on-camera, and threatened to sue if she made it on the show.
The documents also state that Allison’s contract said she would earn $2,500 per episode for the first five shows and $5,000 for each additional episode.
Allison is convinced Chris’ actions caused her to be axed and she’s clearly not going to take this one lying down. She wants Chris to pay up.
Had Allison landed a role on the new season of “Wives,” she would have shared screen time with Shaunie O’Neal (Shaquille O’Neal’s ex wife), Evelyn Lozada (who was engaged to Miami Heat’s Antoine Walker), and Jennifer Williams (the ex wife of former NBA player Eric Williams).
Do you think Chris was out of line, or just protecting his privacy? Should Allison be allowed to rejoin the show?
