Cleaveland Cavaliers leader, #LeBronJames is being sued by a company for allegedly stealing their idea for a new tv show.
In a new lawsuit, filed by #AdventureEnterprises, the company claims that over two years ago, it pitched a TV show to LeBron called "Shop Talk," a show based in a barbershop-like setting where celebs are filmed getting their hair cuts while talking busines to their barbers.
The company claims it had numerous talks about the idea with LeBron's company, #UNINTERRUPTED, where they divulged in-depth information about the show, and were working on figuring out a strategy for pitching it to various networks.
Somewhere along the line, however, LeBron removed Adventure Enterprises from the equation and created his own webisode---which they feel is a ripoff of their idea--- called "The Shop," which features LeBron in a barbershop with his contemporaries, "while engaging in an intimate conversation describing cultural experiences." Adventure Enterprises claims it confronted LeBron's people, who ended up only offering them an apology and the assurance that it would not happen again.
However, apparently it did happen again, because another segment later aired on #ESPN.
Adventure Enterprises is gunning for an injunction prohibiting LeBron, and his company, from producing any more webisodes. They are also suing for some serious cash!
The company is also going after LeBron's business partner, #MaverickCarter, in their lawsuit as well.
A source close to LeBron and Maverick dismisses the lawsuit as being "totally frivolous and publicity seeking."
