Lonzo Ball is not going down without a fight.
Just last week, it was reported that family friend and co-founder Alan Foster had allegedly stolen $1.5 million out of his personal and business accounts, so the Los Angeles Lakers star distanced himself from the company by covering up his BBB tattoo and hinting towards a move to Nike.
If Foster thought Lonzo was going to let this go, he thought wrong, because TMZ Sports obtained paperwork that shows he plans on getting every bit of that money back.
“TMZ Sports has obtained the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles on Tuesday … in which Ball alleges Foster orchestrated a “fraudulent scheme” to take money from BBB and divert the money to his personal accounts.
Ball claims Foster intentionally got close to his family knowing he was one of the best basketball players in the country and would likely go on to make millions in the NBA.
Ball claims Foster began conspiring against them shortly after his release.
Zo also alleges when Foster was confronted, he threatened to expose the Ball family with false information to the public.
It’s unclear how much Lonzo is asking for … but it’s well in excess of $2 million.”
LaVar ball cleared up any speculation that Big Baller Brand would be shutting his doors because of this latest incident.
Lonzo Ball is the majority owner of Big Baller Brand at 51 percent. Foster, LaVar Ball and Tina Ball, Lonzo’s mother, each own 16.3 percent.
