Adventure Enterprises said in the lawsuit that it pitched a TV show to LeBron called "Shop Talk", where celebrities share their business success stories while getting haircuts in a barbershop, TMZ Sports reports. The company argues James and UNINTERRUPTED instead split off to pitch the show on their own and removed Adventure Enterprises from the process entirely.
When Adventure Enterprises confronted James' representatives about the matter, the company received an apology and was told it was a "one-time" issue that wouldn't happen again.
A person close to James told USA TODAY Sports that Adventure Enterprises sought payment from Uninterrupted more than eight months ago and were told its claims had no merit. They also want some serious cash.
LeBron James could be in some legal trouble regarding his barbershop-themed series "The Shop" on his multimedia company UNINTERRUPTED. It was later renamed as "Bama Cuts".
