Leicester Bryce Stovell claims he is basketball great LeBron James’ father, as reported at Fox Sports. The 55-year-old lawyer, educated at Princeton and The University of Chicago, says he met LeBron’s mother, Gloria James, in Washington D.C. and had sex with Gloria when he was 29 and she was 15, resulting in the birth of LeBron. Stovell says the paternity test Gloria James took was tampered with resulting in a DNA cover up, and he is seeking 4 million in damages.
Gloria James made up the story of LeBron James’ life to make it resemble Spike Lee’s He Got Game, according to Leicester Bryce Stovell
Gloria James has said LeBron James’ biological father is Anthony McClelland, an ex-con who left her. In the movie He Got Game, directed by Spike Lee, Denzel Washington plays a prison inmate and the father of a basketball player who is heavily pursued by colleges.
If LeBron James’ father is Leicester Bryce Stovell, why is Stovell making his appearance now?
Even if you are only slightly familiar with sports, you know that the talk in the sport’s world right now is LeBron James. Everyone wants to know who he will sign with and his annoucement is set to be aired soon. Leicester Bryce Stovell claims he is the biological father of LeBron James and he wants money – lots of money. If he is truly the father of LeBron James why didn’t he try to contact Gloria James before now?
Gloria James told Stovell she was pregnant, back in the day, but never told Stovell who the father was. Stovell said he joked with Gloria that the child should play basketball if the child was is. But is that it? Why didn’t Stovell work to find out if the child Gloria James was carrying was indeed his? Was he not curious? Did he not care? He knew the mother of the child would take care of the child, and there was no money to be made back then. But there’s plenty of money to be made now.
The paternity test to show that Leicester Bryce Stovell is the father turned up negative
Many years later, Leicester Bryce Stovell is back. In 2007, his lawyers got Gloria James to take a paternity test. The results were negative. Now James is claiming LeBron and his mommy tampered with the results. Gloria James raised LeBron without Stovell in the picture. If the results were tampered with, could it be Gloria James’ and LeBron James’ attempt to prevent Stovell from getting what he doesn’t deserve? Suing for punitive damages of 4 million now is an obvious sleazy trick. There’s only one thing Leicester Bryce Stovell cares about and it’s not LeBron James.
