LeBron James Sued By Opera Nightclub In Atlanta

Everyone knows that having an athlete host a party in your club when an opposing team hits a city is big business! Especially when it’s one of the members of Miami’s Big 3.

There have been stories for years about some of the activities, complications and general debauchery that happens as a result of these club apperances. The latest mishap involves 2 competing Atlanta clubs vying for the services of King James:

Atlanta’s Opera nightclub is suing the Miami Heat player and the Gold Room over an appearance James is scheduled to make later this month.

In a complaint filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court, Opera accuses James of reneging on a promise to appear for one hour on March 17, for which he was to be paid $25,000. James, who last summer infamously jilted his longtime team the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Heat, will be in town the night before Miami is scheduled to play the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena.

The conflict arose when James’ agent said competing club, the Gold Room, was also pursuing him for a special appearance. The suit claims James’ agent had already taken a $12,000 deposit and a second for $3,000 when he notified Opera on March 4 that James would not appear and would go to the Gold Room appearance instead.

Sounds to me like one of the professional friends booked Opera and the other The Gold Room (it’s never the agent or manager. This is usually a way to enable the entourage to earn a few dollars on their own. Some end up making a lucrative career out of it and have no issues. Then there are the ones who end up in this mess.)

Oh well, If you’re in Atlanta, be sure to check out  Gold Room on the 17th, have a glass of champagne or your favorite adult beverage and come back here with the details! ::giggles::
