The Miami Heat are struggling on the court. Apparently, LeBron James is now in some trouble off the court.

Rhonda Cook of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Tuesday that Atlanta's Opera Nightclub is suing the two-time MVP, accusing him of backing out of his promise to make an appearance later this month.

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.

According to the report, James was going to be paid $25,000 to appear at Opera for one hour on March 17, a day before the Heat play the Hawks.
