Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh is suing his ex-wife and mother of his child Allison Mathis. Bosh has been trying to get her from appearing on VH1’s “Basketball Wives.” Bosh is claiming Mathis and the producers of the show Shed Media are exploiting his likeness and trademark.
The suit said that Mathis was hired to be in the show’s third season wants to use the VH1 show to become a star of her own. Bosh wants an injunction to prevent Mathis or Shed Media from trademark infringement by using his name and disclosing private information. The suit added that despite the show being called “Basketball Wives,” the women featured on the show are not in fact currently married to NBA players, rather they are women who are dating or dated NBA players.
A few months ago, we told you that Chris was determined to put a stop to Allison appearing on the show and blabbing about him and their daughter on TV — and “Wives” producers decided Allison just wasn’t worth the headache.
