Gloria James, the mother of LeBron James is reportedly sleeping with one of his teammates, while Matt Lauer denies having cheated on his wife, and Cameron Diaz is accused by Kate Hudson of having a relationship with Alex Rodriguez out of revenge. All in all, it’s just another day in celebrity sex scandals.
Gloria James is said to be having a sexual affair with her son LeBron’s teammate and friend, Delonte West. Reports indicate that LeBron James found out about the affair prior to the Celtics’ Game Four matchup against the Boston Celtics in their recently concluded playoff series.
Many are speculating that LeBron James’ suddenly diminished play from Game 4 on was the result of him being upset about the relationship between his mother and his teammate. West has had a number of off the court issues in the past; his lifestyle has hardly been beyond reproach. For LeBron James, who has led a seemingly scandal free existence, that fact would likely be particularly difficult to take.
Matt Lauer today angrily denied a National Enquirer report that he had cheated on his wife and that they had separated. The National Enquirer, however, is standing behind its story and says that it has several irrefutable sources that can back up its report that Lauer has had a number of affairs and that he and his wife are living separately. Lauer called the report “a work of fiction”.
Finally, Kate Hudson let it be known that she believes that Cameron Diaz is dating Hudson’s ex-boyfriend, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, as payback.
It seems that years back, Kate Hudson began dating pop star Justin Timberlake only days after Timberlake and Diaz broke up. Hudson believes that Diaz targeted Rodriguez as a form of revenge. Rodriguez, known most commonly as ‘A-Rod’, seemed to once again show that his days of getting caught up in off the field controversy are behind him, hit a critical grand slam home run on Friday night and propelled the Yankees to an 8 to 4 win over the Minnesota Twins.
So we have three very high profile celebrities involved, directly or indirectly, in sex scandals in one form or another. While it will likely be several weeks, at least, before we know all of the details, the developments will keep everybody entertained.
For now, it’s probably safe to say that the issue involving LeBron James’ mother Gloria and his teammate Delonte West is potentially the most scandalous, but Matt Lauer’s marriage issues and A-Rod’s latest romance with Cameron Diaz are sure to titillate as well.
