TMZ: LeBron James reportedly sued over barbershop sports show

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers stretches his jersey just prior to playing the Indiana Pacers in Game One of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena on April 15, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio.

LeBron James and business partner Maverick Carter are being sued by Adventure Enterprises for allegedly taking the company's idea for a barbershop talk show series, according to TMZ.

James' company instead coopted the idea for themselves, the suit said. Adventure Enterprises claims it had numerous talks over a two-year period about a show called "Shop Talk" that centered around the same concept, and UNINTERRUPTED stole the idea and ran with it.

Apparently, the tables have turned and, according to TMZ, James is now being sued for his show "The Shop".

Zacks Investment Research cut T-Mobile US from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a research report on Wednesday, February 21st. While T-Mobile stated the problem had been resolved, the FCC continued to receive complaints about failed calls.

TMZ Sports reported Monday that Adventure Enterprises filed suit against James, claiming it originally proposed what would become James' UNINTERRUPTED show The Shop. LeBron's company reportedly apologized and promised to stop the show, but we all know that didn't happen.

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

This new lawsuit comes at virtually the same time that James has been having a public spat with Alabama football coach Nick Saban over a trailer for "Shop Talk", a program featuring Saban and former Crimson Tide-turned Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver Julio Jones.
