BronBron is finally trying to put a stop to ugly rumors that his mom was getting busy with his homie, Cavs teammate Delonte West. This morning Lebron’s lawyer sent a cease and desist email completely denying the scandal. Pop the hood for details
According to TMZ reports, LeBron James’ attorney sent a cease and desist email to terezowens.com denying the rumor of a sex scandal involving LeBron’s mom and his teammate Delonte West.
TMZ obtained a copy of the email sent to terezowens.com — the sports blog that first reported on Friday that LeBron’s mother Gloria was allegedly sleeping with Delonte. In the email, Frederick Nance — attorney for LeBron and Gloria — says the report is “categorically false and per se defamatory.” Nance adds, “No thinking person could possibly believe such rubbish.”
The report — which also spread as a viral email — was supposed to explain the Cleveland Cavaliers’ playoff loss to the Boston Celtics with this theory: LeBron finds out about Delonte and his mom before game 4 … Cavs go on to lose games 4, 5, and 6.
The guys at terezowens tell us, “We think it’s a little fishy that they waited almost 4 days to fire this off.” They say they stand by their source, and they’re consulting with their lawyers. The story is still up on their site … for now.
You can read the full cease and desist email below:
Mr. Owens. I am the attorney for Gloria and LeBron James. I am writing to demand that you Cease and Desist in repeating the lies you have been instrumental in spreading regarding Gloria James. They are categorically false and per se defamatory. If you do not understand the legal significance of those facts, I strongly urge you to consult you legal counsel.
At first blush, your irresponsible speculation about what might have contributed to the Cavaliers performance in the Boston series was so idiotic and “off the wall” that we did not think that it even warranted a denial. No thinking person could possibly believe such rubbish. But you have persisted in repeating this nonsense, attributing it to an unidentified source all for your own personal gain. We demand that you immediately stop publishing or in any way repeating these false, despicable and per se defamatory statements.
This is a mess… and for Lebron’s sake, we hope it’s not true. But cease and desist or not, this is one of those things people are probably not going to forget — EVER!
