Lonzo Ball continues to make headlines due to the Big Baller Brand drama. According to TMZ, Lonzo is suing BBB co-founder Alan Foster. TMZ Sports obtained the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
This comes at a time were Foster reportedly used a “fraudulent scheme” to steal more than 1.5 million dollars from Lonzo and the family company. The Ball family also reported that they had no previous knowledge of Foster’s criminal history.
“The Balls also claim they had no knowledge of Foster’s checkered past … and that he spent several years in federal prison in the early 2000s for his alleged role in a ponzi scheme.”
When Foster was confronted about the current situation he seemed very hostile about the allegations.
“Zo also alleges when Foster was confronted, he threatened to expose the Ball family with false information to the public,” the report states.
Per ESPN here is How LaVar responded to the current situation.
“I’ve always believed in the best in people. Regretfully, I put my complete trust in Alan Foster to manage my son’s business affairs,” LaVar said. “At the end of the day, family comes first, and I support Zo wholeheartedly. Together, we will make this right.”
Now, many would think the recent allegations don’t bode well for BBB. However, LaVar is still confident in his overpriced company.
When talking to TMZ Sports, LaVar stated: “I’m not gonna let one roodypoo guy come in here and do something bad and then be like the brand’s not good. The brand is good. It’s just somebody did something bad to it … We had a snake up in the thing, but you gotta understand this — I’m a snake charmer. When you’re a snake charmer, you’re gonna get bit.”
Well, the self-proclaimed “snake charmer” may need to charm his own son in staying with his company or else BBB may be in big trouble.
