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.

Chris is an insecure guy. He was crying like a little baby all playoffs long.

T.V. is trash with a few good shows thrown in. This really does show the degradation of our society. Kind`ve scary to think what another 30 years is going to do.

The name of the show is BASKETBALL WIVES

Not ho's, skanks, babymammas, sluts or any other derivation of said words.

Wouldn't that mean she's actually have to be married to the guy to be considerred a wife?

Didn't Shaunie say she was never approached about being on the show anyway? Shows how much she knows. She makes it sound like she's the CREATOR/PRODUCER of the show and she doesn't know anything. LMAO! Quarter nostrils bitch. LOL

The Realist...look at it like this. When big celebrities have their employees sign "confidentiality agreements" is not because hey have anything to hide...its because they don't want their private and personal business put out in the streets. So if said employee gets fired and wants to run to the media and whoever and talk schit. Chris don't want this chick telling all his personal business that the was "priviledged" to while they were together put out there like that. But he should do it like Dwight Howard did his. Let her go out there but don't mention his name or their childs name. PERIOD!!

Mike- Its a Sad day when Personal Relationships Need a Confidentiality Agreement.
But, I feel what your saying, In essence he is hiding some part of his personal life that he does not want out! OOh Bother, its the Price of Fame and Fortune!
On a side note: Does Anyone care that I like Chris Bosh better as a Toronto Raptor when he played with Vince Carter?

Its unfortunate indeed. The problem is that "people" are in search of fame and fortune...either by their own talents or to attach themselves to someone who had one or both. So when that person claim to fame is no longer around but they can still get on TV and say "I'm the ex-this and that or I'm such and such Baby Momma" and he's a lowdown dirty dog and he did this to me etc. (whether its right or wrong)...he has to be able to protect his "brand". So let her go on the show and make her money...but don't talk about that dude or use the child as a prop.

Big up to Chris Bosh! How is it all you gotta do now is suck some dude's **** and you think you have the right to be famous? You can't act, you can't sing, you can't dance, but you can gossip, spread rumors, live off some guys alimony and child support money. Like they say "Just because you got some cash doesn't meant you got some class"

How can anyone may assumptions about this woman or anyone of these women...you don't know them. The assumption that the player is somehow being victimized is sick and only exist because of his celebrity and money. Please remember it takes two to tango. He wasn't raped. He had sex without protection just like she did. Therefore he was a willing partner.
