Man Suing LeBron James Over Paternity Claim

America’s most publicized basketball player, LeBron James, is being sued by a man who claims to be his biological father, celebrity gossip website TMZ reported.

Leicester Bryce Stovell, 55, said he is the victim of a DNA cover up by James’ mother, Gloria, who he met in a Washington, D.C., bar in 1984. He claims he had unprotected sex with her on the same night. Gloria James was 15 at the time, while Stovell was 29.

Stovell said Gloria James returned home to Ohio after the affair but told him a few months later she was pregnant with a baby boy she had named LeBron.
