Monday, TMZ.com reported that the National Basketball Association superstar's company is now being sued by another company, Adventure Enterprises, which claims that Uninterrupted essentially stole the barbershop idea right out from underneath their feet.

LeBron James is being sued by Adventure Enterprises for allegedly stealing their idea for a television show, according to a TMZ report. Then, according to its lawsuit, James cut the company out of the picture and created "The Shop", which features him at a barbershop discussing various topics. The lawsuit says Adventure Enterprises confronted James' people on the matter, and were told it was a one-time issue, but it happened again with a segment that was aired on ESPN, according to TMZ.

LeBron James could be in some legal trouble regarding his barbershop-themed series "The Shop" on his multimedia company UNINTERRUPTED.

A person close to James told USA TODAY Sports that Adventure Enterprises sought payment from Uninterrupted more than eight months ago and were told its claims had no merit. The company is also looking to take away some cash.

While a defiant head coach and his program continued to do the show, they did change the name to "Bama Cuts".

The debut episode of "The Shop", ran during the 2017 NBA Finals and featured James, Warriors forward Draymond Green, rapper 2 Chainz and retired Knicks star Charles Oakley.

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.
