LaMelo Ball facing a massive lawsuit from Big Baller Brand co-founder.
Hornets star LaMelo Ball is facing a $200 million lawsuit amid accusations from his former business partner, Alan Foster.
Foster, the co-founder of Big Baller Brand, is suing LaVar Ball, Tina Ball, LaMelo Ball, and PUMA brand
after alleging that they stole his design for Melo's signature 'MB1' sneakers, which were released in December of 2021.
"LaMelo was instrumental in creating his first signature shoe with Big Baller Brand," Foster wrote, via TMZ.
He was fully aware of the existence of the LaMelo Trademarks -- he helped design them!
He knew that his Big Baller Brand signature shoe was called the 'MB1' and that the name was protected by a federal trademark.
According to the case, the shoe design was drafted when LaMelo was still a teenager, shortly before Alan and BBB acquired specific trademarks for the item.
