LeBron James and his mother Gloria James are being sued for millions by a man who claims he tried to prove he’s the NBA star’s biological father — but LeBron and his mom tampered with the evidence in a cover-up.
TMZ is reporting 55-year-old Leicester Bryce Stovell claims he met Gloria in a D.C. area bar in 1984 … and had unprotected sex with her on the night they met. He later found out she was 15-years-old at the time, he was 29.
In his suit, Stovell claims he has a very clear recollection of the night he had “consensual sexual relations” with Gloria — in fact, he even remembers apologizing for his sub-par performance.
Leicester claims Gloria went back to her hometown in Ohio after they hooked up — but returned several months later to inform him she was pregnant with a boy named LeBron … but she never specifically identified the father.
According to the docs, Leicester claims he reconnected with Gloria over the phone in 2007 — when he began to think he could be LeBron’s father … partly because they look almost identical. Leicester also notes that when he saw LeBron at an NBA game he was, “struck by our similarity in appearance … James and I are nearly if not identical height and pigmentation and have very similar athletic body types.”
Leicester claims during the 2007 phone call — Gloria denied ever meeting him — threatened to have him physically harmed — and told him, “LeBron’s money is for his children.”
A few days after the phone call, Leicester claims LeBron — through his lawyer — agreed to take a DNA paternity test.
Leicester claims he was given results that showed he was not LeBron’s dad … but several months later, he began to suspect that the results were tampered with … and Gloria and LeBron were behind the fraud.
He also claims that Gloria had “fabricated” a story about LeBron’s real father for the “one dimensional commercial image-making purpose … to make [LeBron's] life suggestive of Spike Lee’s popular 1998 sports drama film, ‘He Got Game.’”
Leicester is now seeking $4 million from both LeBron and his mother — claiming fraud, defamation and misrepresentation.
Is there any chance this is true?
James’ camp has denounced the suit as a blatant attempt to capitalize on the attention LeBron will receive in the run-up to his announcement tonight
