Chris Bosh Baby Mama Says Ex Cost Her $1 Million
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Chris Bosh is accused of costing his baby mama $1 million dollars + in future income, due to him getting her fired from Basketball Wives. She’s now returning to court demanding her lawsuit against the ex NBA star NOT be thrown out.
Here’s the latest: On June 21st, Bosh’s baby mama, Allison Mathis, responded to the retired NBA players motion to dismiss her lawsuit before it heads to trial.
Mathis explains that she signed her Basketball Wives deal in early 2011. After entering into the contract, she filmed for the show with co-star Royce Reed, Dwight Howard’s baby mama.
She claims she received positive feedback for her work and at no time did she make negative comments about her baby daddy while on camera.
Further, prior to filming, she told producers that she would not participate in the show in a way that would involve her daughter or her relationship with her child’s father.
Despite not trashing his name, months after she began filming Bosh attempted to interfere by reaching out to the producers and claiming Mathis signed a non-disclosure agreement prohibiting her from speaking about Bosh on camera. He would file suit and she would be fired.
She accuses Bosh of wrongfully depriving her of the opportunity to provide a decent income for herself and daughter, even though she did nothing to harm his financial empire.
Mathis believes due to being fired she lost out of a minimum of $191k (which was due on her contract) + upwards of $1 million dollars in lost opportunities for future earning including appearance fees,
licensing deals, book contracts and endorsements deals.
Instead, she has been forced to support herself through clerical and retail work. She claims to have struggled financially since being fired and even had to file for bankruptcy to save the home where she
lives with her daughter.
Former Basketball Wives star Royce Reed filed a signed affidavit for Mathis in her legal battle explaining she met her while filming in Miami for the reality show.
The producers told Royce to act like she was old friends with Mathis and both knew each other from living Orlando. Royce claims they filmed an episode together and Mathis was well-received. She says at no point did Mathis disparage Bosh as a “bad father” or “dead beat dad”.
Royce explains her pay for appearing on Basketball Wives – for the first season she was paid $5k an episode ($45,000) then was bumped up to $10k per episode for season 2 ($130,000), for season 3 she received $15k an episode ($180,000) and for the fourth season she was paid $20k an episode ($340,000) — saying even though she has no appeared on the show in some time she still receives endorsement and other deals. Royce filed this to support Mathis’ claim she suffered financially due to Bosh getting her fired. The case is scheduled for trial later this year.
Here’s the backstory: Bosh and his baby mama Allison Mathis have been fighting for years in
court over their daughter Trinity. Their custody & support battle was settled but they are still dueling it out in a civil lawsuit over Basketball Wives.
Back in 2011, Bosh sued baby mama along with Shed Media, producers behind Basketball Wives. He claimed the show execs and Mathis – who was set to appear on the 3rd season of the show – were going to infringe on his rights. He demanded the show not be allowed to utter his name and his baby mama not be allowed to film the show.
Mathis was eventually fired by producers and never appeared on the show despite filming. Allison then then counter-sued claiming Bosh ruined her deal and accused him of lying to producers about her having
signed a confidentiality agreement.
Mathis’ lawsuit has been pending since 2011 with both parties still battling it out over her claim he made her lose up to 250k by interfering with her TV deal. She is seeking damages for him having
her fired. The lawsuit is heading to trial with both parties preparing their case
for the courtroom showdown.
Recently, Bosh filed docs demanding the entire case be thrown out before it heads to trial, arguing the evidence proves he did nothing wrong.
