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

Apparently, the tables have turned and, according to TMZ, James is now being sued for his show "The Shop".

The company claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, it pitched "Shop Talk" to UNINTERRUPTED, the site launched by James and Carter, with the barbershop as the backdrop where celebs share their business success stories while getting a haircut.

It was just a few weeks ago when Lebron James made a big fuss about Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide basically stealing his idea of doing a barbershop show and pretty much forced their hand and made them change the name of the show as a result.

However, they are back in action this weekend as they travel to West Brom in the Premier League's early kick-off (12:30pm). Real Madrid youngster Dani Ceballos may be on the way to Liverpool this summer according to Spanish reports.

TMZ Sports reported Monday that Adventure Enterprises filed suit against James, claiming it originally proposed what would become James' UNINTERRUPTED show The Shop. The show aired as a webisode.

When Alabama released its "Bama Cuts" program recently, National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James took issue with it, saying the idea was property of his "Uninterrupted" brand. Then after being approached, LeBron's people apologized and said it would not happen again. Adventure Enterprises is hoping to halt the show's production along with receiving some money.

A little while later they released another episode though, and that's when they chose to sue.
