LOS ANGELES (CBS4) — Miami Heat star Chris Bosh 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 claimed 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 said Mathis was hired to appear in the third season of the VH1 reality show and wants to use it to become a TV star. He 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.
