Last week some leaked text messages painted a pretty clear picture about what Lebron James has been trying to do to a model named Carmen Ortega. Carmen, you may recall, was linked to Reggie Bush way back when Kim Kardashian discovered he’d cheated on her with the curvy Latina. We tracked Carmen down to find out what really happened between her and Lebron and also to get to the bottom of recent rumors that Jason Derulo cheated on Jordin Sparks with her. She had a lot to say about what she learned from the Reggie fiasco and the lies these guys tell to get some on the side!
BOSSIP: First things first, how did those text messages get out? A lot of people seemed to think they could be fake?
Carmen Ortega: I lost my phone in Ibiza, I was hanging out with my good friend Afrojack, we went to a club and my stuff was near the DJ booth and from what I’m hearing, everything was dramatic, next thing you know my phone was gone, I really think somebody took my phone… And yes, those were real texts from Lebron, you can verify the number if you want. I have no reason to make it up.
BOSSIP: So how did you meet Lebron?
CO: I actually met Lebron when I was in a relationship. Me and my ex just broke up about a month and a half ago, I met Lebron six months before that in Miami. I didn’t even know who he was. I was with my best friend, he sent guys to my table to get my number and join him at his table. I never went to the table I was like ‘Nah I’m good I’m fine here.’ Towards the end of the night my friend was like ‘I gave Lebron your number.’ I was like ‘Why would you do that I have a boyfriend, you should never give my number out without asking.’So the next morning I get a text message, like “Good seeing you, I wish you would have joined my table, something something L James”. It didn’t even click at the moment and then it clicked later, and I responded “Nice meeting you, thanks for offering to join you at the table.”
Later he kept texting me I guess trying to initiate a friendship and I was very direct like ‘I have a boyfriend I’m not interested in anybody other than that I’m exclusive to him and out of respect to him we shouldn’t talk.’ He was like “no worries.”
More on the flip!
