LeBron James sued over barbershop-themed show's production

LeBron James and the Alabama football team have had an ongoing riff regarding which party created the idea for a barbershop-style show.

In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports, Adventure Enterprises claims it pitched a show to James, 33, called "Shop Talk" that would feature celebrities getting a haircut while sharing keys to their personal success.

According to a report by TMZ, James is being sued by a company that says the National Basketball Association star stole their idea to create his show, "The Shop". The company argues James and UNINTERRUPTED instead split off to pitch the show on their own and removed Adventure Enterprises from the process entirely.

There's a reason LeBron James is consistently at the top of his game, according to James Comey.

Adventure Enterprises said it confronted LeBron's people and only received an apology and the assurance that it wouldn't happen again, the tabloid wrote.

Adventure Enterprises is gunning for an injunction prohibiting LeBron and his company from producing any more episodes.

The tabloid said the company claims it had several talks with LeBron's company, UNINTERRUPTED, about the idea.

TMZ Sports says Adventure Enterprises is also looking to sue LeBron's partner, Maverick Carter. They also want some serious cash.

That led to a war of words between Alabama coach Nick Saban and the Cleveland Cavaliers forward, but now there has been an interesting twist in the case. But subsequent episodes have aired, including a segment on ESPN.

"The company sought a payment eight months ago and were told their claim was ridiculous, and they disappeared", a source close to James and Carter told ESPN.
