LeBron James' Uninterrupted sued over barbershop-themed show

LeBron James' Uninterrupted sued over barbershop-themed show

According to reports, Adventure Enterprises claims they pitched LeBron James on the idea and had several discussions with Uninterrupted over a two year period before LeBron's company went and created their own show called "The Shop" based on that idea.

The battle for barber shop themed roundtable shows took another twist today as LeBron James' multimedia platform Uninterrupted has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly stealing the idea.

The suit claims that the idea Adventure Enterprises discussed with UNINTERRUPTED was "a barbershop where celebs share their business success stories while getting a haircut", according to TMZ Sports.

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".

Adventure Enterprises said they received assurances from James that the webisode was a one-time only thing.

Adventure Enterprises is also suing James' business partner, Maverick Carter, the CEO of UNINTERRUPTED, according to TMZ Sports.

The debut episode of "The Shop", ran during the 2017 NBA Finals and featured James, Warriors forward Draymond Green, rapper 2 Chainz and retired Knicks star Charles Oakley.

A source close to LeBron and Maverick tells TMZ calls the lawsuit "totally frivolous and publicity seeking".

Apparently it did happen again, because another segment aired on ESPN no less.

Since UNINTERRUPTED reached out to Alabama, the school released a second episode of "Shop Talk" but renamed the show "Bama Cuts".

The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the lawsuit.
