LeBron James Is Being Sued for Stealing Barbershop Show Idea

LeBron James is being sued by Adventure Enterprises for allegedly stealing their idea for a television show, according to a TMZ report.

The company claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, it pitched "Shop Talk" to UNINTERRUPTED, the site launched by James and Carter, with the barbershop as the backdrop where celebs share their business success stories while getting a haircut.

Monica Watts, Alabama's associate vice president for communications, said the university was reviewing the situation before determining its next course of action.

US Warns of New Syrian Attack If Chemical Weapons Used Again
The Western states have accused forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad of an attack with the use of chemical weapons in Duma. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs.

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

The company, which is also suing James' business partner Maverick Carter, is seeking an injunction to stop James and his firm from producing additional episodes. They also want some serious cash.

That led to a war of words between Alabama coach Nick Saban and the Cleveland Cavaliers forward, but now there has been an interesting twist in the case.

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

A person close to James, meanwhile, told USA TODAY that Adventure Enterprises sought payment from the National Basketball Association icon's Uninterrupted more than eight months ago.

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