Look: Here's How Chris Bosh Allegedly Wants to Use 'Basketball Wives' Footage Against His Baby Mama

Check out the details.

Published October 6, 2016

Chris Bosh has two very different battles going on.

On one hand, the two-time NBA champion and 11-time All-Star is fresh off of failing his physical with the Miami Heat last month due to his ongoing bout with blood clots, which could end his career abruptly.

On the other hand, the veteran power forward is up against some baby mama drama on the other court — the legal kind.

TSR STAFF: Talia O. @theclosetratchet _____________________________________ Looks like Chris Bosh is experiencing drama on and off the court... and if you thought it was baby mama drama, you guessed it! Word on the street is Bosh will be going head to head with the producers of VH1's hit show "Basketball Wives LA" in order to keep his baby mama quiet! _____________________________________ So back in August, Allison Mathis sued her baby zaddy Chris Bosh after she alleged that he interfered with her Basketball Wives checks since she believes she was let go from the show because of him. She detailed that back in 2011, Bosh had sued Shed Media, the production company behind #BBWLA, and had arranged a settlement agreement with them. Mathis alleged that almost immediately after this, she was let go from the show. Word is Bosh never wanted her to appear on the show in the first place because he feared that she would "infringe on his trademarks and publicity rights." It was so bad he aint't even want his name to be mentioned on the show! _____________________________________ Well according to The Jasmine Brand, Bosh countered her lawsuit last month and sent a subpoena over to Shed Media requesting them to send a "copy of all raw footage from the Basketball Wives series that includes images of Allison Mathis." Bosh also reportedly stated that if Shed Media doesn't fork over the documents the company can be held in --- read more at TheShadeRoom.com (link in bio)

According to one report, Bosh filed a subpoena to the producers of Basketball Wives, requesting that they fork over the raw footage of his baby mama, Allison Mathis, shot on the show. He had previously contended that her being part of the show would infringe on his trademark rights.

The footage never aired, though, as Mathis was released from the show's cast before the third season debuted in 2011.

Bosh and Mathis share a daughter, Trinity, together, and had been entangled in a legal dispute over her until they reached a settlement last year.

What hasn't been settled is Mathis's allegation that Bosh made her lose out on up to $250,000 that she was slated to earn for being on Basketball Wives. Mathis's unresolved lawsuit dates back to 2011.

Bosh's reported subpoena is a counter measure to seemingly help end any chance of their dirty laundry being aired out before the masses.

Hopefully, these two could work things out ... and soon.
