LOS ANGELES — The Big Baller Brand website is jammed with $50 T-shirts and $60 hats, the cornerstone of a business that outspoken founder LaVar Ball says is competing with big-name athletic apparel brands.
But the Chino, Calif., company responsible for screen-printing and embroidering the hats, T-shirts and other high-priced apparel sold by Big Baller Brand claims it hasn’t been paid.
In a breach of contract lawsuit filed in San Bernardino County Superior Court, attorneys for Closet Collection allege that Big Baller Brand owes the company almost $25,000.
“When it came time to make payments, they kind of bailed,” a Closet Collection representative told the Los Angeles Times on Monday on the condition his name not be used because of the ongoing legal proceedings. “We tried for about three months. They said they would make payment about seven times. They just kept pushing it back and kept pushing it back.”
The lawsuit, filed in November, had not previously been reported. Big Baller Brand representatives didn’t respond to a request for comment.
