Jan 13, 2022

A publicist is suing LaMelo Ball over some back pay. Amber Johnson claims that the rising NBA superstar owes her millions after signing his very lucrative deal with Puma, but she never got her cut.

The 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. In her suit, Johnson alleges as part of their working relationship, Ball agreed to give her a 10% cut of any deal she found.
