Last week, NBA player Chris Bosh filed a lawsuit against his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Allison Mathis, and Shed Media, producers of Basketball Wives. Bosh claimed that Mathis’ appearance on the upcoming season of the show would exploit his trademark and personal likeness. The lawsuit also claimed that “the reality show is likely to confuse the public into thinking he authorized or sponsored Basketball Wives.” However, Mathis herself is not even scheduled to appear on the series, according to the show’s executive producer,Shaunie O’Neal.
TMZ caught up with the former Mrs. Shaquille O’Neal and asked for her take on the Bosh lawsuit and she responded, “That girl isn’t even on the show…He must like wasting money on attorneys.” Regardless of the current legal situation, season three of Basketball Wives is still scheduled to premiere on Monday, May 30th.
