James Harden is undoubtedly one of the top players of the Brooklyn Nets and has always contributed to the team’s success.
However, it seems he has had some bad luck with money recently. According to Page Six, James Harden is suing Austin McBroom for $2 million for TikTok v. YouTube boxing event.
Austin McBroom organized the “Social Gloves: Battle of the Platforms” event, which saw him box TikToker Bryce Hall as the main event. However, the event was said to be a financial failure that lost around $10 million.
As stated by the legal documentation sent by Harden’s lawyers, Harden invested over $2 million in the event and wants his money back. He also wants another $400,000 that he was promised in profits.
The lawsuit stated that McBroom’s company, Simply Greatness Productions, recently sent letters to creditors reading, “In light of the apparent underperformance of the Event, our firm has been retained to represent SGP in connection with either a workout of the claims of all of its creditors or if a workout is not feasible a likely bankruptcy filing.”
This is certainly a messy situation for James Harden to be involved in and we will have to wait and see if he will be able to recover his money or not.
