*Just as he’s getting ready to announce where he’ll play the coming years, basketball superstar, LeBron James, and his mother, Gloria James, are being sued for a whole-lot-of money by some guy who claims to be the b-ball super star’s biological father.
According to TMZ, the man says he attempted to prove that he is LeBron’s biological father, but LeBron and his mother tampered with the evidence to cover it all up … bizarre.
Leicester Bryce Stovell, who is 55-years-old, claims in the lawsuit that he met Gloria in a D.C. bar in 1984 and had unprotected sex the night they met. He later found out she was only 15 at the time and he was 29. Wowzers!
Get this, he isn’t some crazy old man trying to make a buck, at least he doesn’t appear that way. He’s a Princeton graduate who earned a law degree from the University of Chicago! He became the senior legal advisor for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The details of the lawsuit are tremendous. He says his memory is recalls him apologizing for a mediocre performance to Gloria that evening!
He also claims that Gloria took her pregnant self back to Ohio but showed back up several months later to inform him she was carrying a boy she named LeBron, but never specified whom the father was.
Stovell says he recalls telling the 15 year-old that if it is his to make sure he plays basketball. That was the last the two were in contact.
In 2007, the educated man contacted Gloria, telling her how he thinks LeBron may be his son, as he was intrigued with how similar he and the basketball player look. After threatening Leicester to stay away from LeBron’s money, a few days later, he claims LeBron agreed to take a DNA test.
Allegedly, the test came back negative, but Leicester became
suspicious of the claim and suspected the Jameses tampered with the test. He says LeBron tampered with it due to pent up anger.
So now he’s suing them for $4 million for fraud, defamation, and misrepresentation. Hmm, his guy just might know what he’s doing.
