Chris Bosh Sued Over Botched 'Basketball Wives' Deal

6/16/2011 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miami Heat superstar Chris Bosh has been sued by his baby mama -- for allegedly torpedoing her deal to join the cast of "Basketball Wives" ... AFTER she signed her contract ... TMZ has learned.

Bosh's ex -- Allison Mathis -- filed the lawsuit in Orlando, FL earlier this week ... in which she claims she signed a deal with show producers which could have scored her more than $250,000 for at least 4 seasons ... but Chris screwed it up.

According to the docs, Bosh lied to producers -- and told them Allison had several court-orders in effect which prohibit her from appearing on camera. Bosh also allegedly threatened to sue producers if they put her on the show.

Mathis claims the producers folded like a cheap suit -- and axed her from the show ... after she had already taped two episodes.

In her suit, Mathis also includes a copy of her contract -- which shows she was slated to make $2,500 per episode for the first five shows ... and $5,000 for each additional episode.

This chick, and all those other basketball wives are trash. They don't care about the people they're with, just the checks that they bounce. These trashy sluts have no other discernible talent in life to make it on their own. I'm glad she got cut from the show, this a case she won't win, and I think it's hilarious.

He didn't want the embarrassment of being associated with this chick. Don't blame him. You pay the price every time, for dealing with a crazy chick....every damn time...

Husbands and Wives, even in a Divorce should make peace, leave it alone, go on in life.

TMZ, cant you screen and block 'advertising jerks' like the '********' who made the last two comments and leave room for persons to make meaningful comments relating to the given article? Let either of the two I am referring to respond, if they dare.

I suspect, having seen what these show sare like, he wanted to protect his child and objected to his daughter being featured on the show and any mention of him or anything about their realtionship, which basically kills her qualification to participate in this crap franchise. It never ceases to amaze me how even seemingly intelligent black men like Chris, who is a member of a honor society and engineering societies, graviate towards trashy women.

Now America will get to know what Canada has been watching for years: the ugly battle between Bosh and his ex-girlfriend. Because he was playing in Canada, his battle with his ex was never mentioned in the press in the States. Trust me, this has been going on for a long time.

And as someone that lives in Canada, and has been following their break-up since he was playing for the Raptors, I'm sorry but his ex is not trashy. Bosh kicked her to the curb when he met his current wife, and I believe she just gave birth when it happened. Trust me when I say Bosh does not come out as looking good in this love story turned sour.

She should be thanking him. Why would she want to look like all those other loser reality stars and parade her life on camera? He's likely saving her life from the ruins it will become.

@Lisa - When a man doesn't put a ring on your finger, you're renting him the vajayjay day to day and he's free to kick you to the curb anytime he wants. Women need to learn from this and realize that when the right woman comes a long, a man doesn't care what situaion, he'll do what's necessary to not lose her.

Daaaang. Dude should let her do this reality show and then straight take her to court and get a reduction in child support payments. Cause you know she took him to bank.

These tricks never learn.

I am ready now to make my comment, relevant to the article above. Bosh's relationship with his ex is like the performance of his team in the finals of the NBA; A train-wreck!

He could have simply did what Dwight Howard did with Royce...allow her to be on the show but bar her from saying his name or revealing their child on tv. Honestly, as ratchet as the women on the show are, he simply did nothing but keep this woman from earning an honest wage for HERSELF and keep her dependant on him and his child support!!! Trust me when I say, from a woman who's been there, this is nothing but a ploy to control this woman and her life...it has NOTHING to do with the child!!!! Why would anyone want to stop anyone else from earning their own money!!!! As long as she keeps him and their child out of it, why does he still give a D***!!!!
