LaMelo Ball’s former publicist is not having it.
She claims that the Charlotte Hornets superstar owes her $10M for helping him secure his lucrative Puma deal.
Amber Johnson claims that the rising NBA superstar owes her millions, that was supposed to be her cut.
The latest lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, claims Ball hired her back in 2019 to help snag some business deals but he didn’t keep his side of the deal.
“Johnson says she worked with Ball to get him on a video game streaming show — and things went so well, Ball and his reps asked her to work with them going forward.
In her suit, Johnson claims as part of their working relationship, Ball and his camp agreed to give her a 10 percent cut of any deal she found for the hooper. She also says they agreed to reimburse her for any out-of-pocket expenses that she incurred while working on projects for Melo.
Johnson claims a short time later, she helped Ball sign a contract with streaming service “Caffeine.”
Following that deal in 2019, Johnson says she began talking to Puma about working with Ball as well.
In her suit, Johnson says she helped facilitate communication between Melo and the giant shoe company … which she says ultimately resulted in a $100 million contract for Ball.”
