Bosh sues his baby's momma for appearing on Reality TV show

LOS ANGELES (AP)—Miami Heat star Chris Bosh(notes) is suing the mother of his child for appearing on a reality TV show called “Basketball Wives,” which he said intrudes on his private life.

Bosh claims in a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles federal court that Allison Mathis and Shed Media are trying to unjustly enrich themselves by using Bosh’s name and intruding into his private affairs.

He acknowledges he and Mathis have a child together.

The suit says Mathis was hired to appear in the third season of the VH1 reality show and wants to use it to become a TV star. Bosh seeks damages and an injunction to block her and the media company from trademark infringement by using his name and disclosing private facts about his life.

“Though the reality television show is titled, ‘Basketball Wives,’ the featured women in the show are not the current wives of NBA players,” the lawsuit says. “Instead, the show follows the lives of women who are dating or who dated NBA basketball players or who were formerly married to NBA players. “

“Defendant Mathis is attempting to promote her own commercial brand and become a television personality and/or celebrity by exploiting her former relationship with plaintiff,” says the lawsuit.

Shed Media did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment Tuesday. Bosh’s attorneys said they had not been notified who will be representing Mathis.

Bosh’s attorneys said use of Bosh’s name and “life rights” does not fall in the category of protected expression under the First Amendment.

“Defendants are not ‘expressing’ anything other than their attempt to profit from plaintiff’s fame,” the lawsuit says.

No, he's pissed that not only is she gonna want alimony payments, but now make money off of him by associating herself as his ex-wife. Unfortunately, he fails to realize he has no grounds since ppl like Kim Kardashian get famous for getting f**ked by black entertainers all the time

I couldn't.
heres an idea....dont have kids with a bunch of random women!

what they should do, is have each season of the show based on the group of women that ALL have kids with the same sports player, and they can cat fight over who he liked the most...

season 1, Shawn Kemp. 11 kids with 9 women.

season 2, Travis Henry. 9 kids with 9 women.

season 3, Jason Caffey, 8 kids with 7 women.
