    Default LeBron being sued by man claiming to be his father

    Despite what we think of LeBron even I don't think he deserves this

    LeBron Sued by Man Claiming to be His Father

    54 minutes ago by TMZ Staff

    TMZ has learned ... 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 diabolical cover-up.

    0707_lebron_gallery_launch_EX

    The lawsuit is explosive -- in it, 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.

    According to the docs -- filed recently in federal court -- Gloria has spent the rest of her life shielding LeBron from the truth.

    But the man making the claim isn't some schmuck -- dude is a Princeton graduate ... who earned a law degree from the University of Chicago ... and then became a Senior Legal Advisor for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    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.

    0707_leicester_doc_EX_2

    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.

    Leicester -- a self-proclaimed high school star athlete -- says he remembers telling Gloria, "Well, if he's mine, make sure he plays basketball." He claims that was the last time he saw Gloria for more than 20 years.

    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 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.

    So why would LeBron participate in such a cover-up? Leicester claims it's all, "due to anger at perceived abandonment and conflict arising from his image as a successful fatherless child from the projects."

    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.

    And check this out -- Leicester also points out that LeBron named his 2nd son "Bryce" -- and claims it's no coincidence. As we said, Leicester's middle name is Bryce.

    LeBron's reps could not be reached for comment.

    ...So it must be true right? Cuz who would ever admit that unless it was true! A legal mind at it's best. This is almost as good as the lawsuit from the guy who claimed emotional damage from being a Michael Jordan lookalike.

    Everything sounds fairly reasonable until I get to the $4 Million part. I'd like to hear why he thinks he's owed money. Perhaps the fraud led him to lose a high paying job or something?

    I cant wait for LeBron to file a counter suit for defamation. I don't understand how this man can think he is owed money.

    Wow. I don't care what you think of Lebron personally, this is just a disgusting comment.

    No excuse.

    That's offensive to you? It's the truth...That's the dark humor behind all of this, this guy starts out his claim for his money with something that is a FELONY.

    Y'all need to grow some thicker skin yeesh. I'd hate to see what happens when you guys go watch a PG-13 movie.

    Dude's crazy, sure. There's also some dark humor in the story. Yeah he's digging for money, but there's the whole wrinkle of the fact that this guy has two legitimate degrees, it's bizarre, and I'm shocked everyone's so offended by two comments that aren't even offensive.

    I'm so confused what this has to do with my comment. You have my condolences, but I'm not sure what it has to do with what I said. I don't rag on anyone for not having their father. Look at this article. The guy comments on how long he lasted in bed, the fact he thinks he looks like LeBron. It's just so over the top and ridiculous how can you not chuckle a bit? Plus he's an Ivy League grad with a degree from one of the top law schools in the nation? You can't even make this up it's so over the top.

    Let's just for a second think, what if this is Lebron's father? He wasn't around, and had no interest until Lebron was worth hundreds of millions of dollars. If Lebron was working at Comcast, the guy still wouldn't be around. He wants no part of Lebron, and only wants a part of his check book.

    That could personally and emotionally screw with someone to come to that realization. To be excited about/find humor in/ hope for a "hilarious" end result is just immature, at best.

    Maybe I don't need "thicker skin", maybe you need some perspective, and to actually think about what the situation could mean to someone else.

    I'm just gonna bow out of this thread before I risk offending anyone else.

    I will say this I'm not here to psycho-analyze Lebron, and if you don't see the humor in this situation then I don't know what to tell ya.

    Sorry I offended you, I guess.

    What started out as a goofy thread has somehow gotten more goofy.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    I give this a 65% chance of being true. No one is going to sue for 8mil when all it takes is a paternity test.

    and if it is true look out for a document with lebron meeting his dad for the first time and playing a game of horse.... is CNN calling. This is more interesting then lebron being a FA

    Lots of pics of the guy at the TMZ site. I don't think its Lebron's dad.
