Lebron James’ Girlfriend Savannah: “I’ve Definitely Not Put A Fire Under His A$$”

- By Bossip Staff

Lebron James’ girlfriend and mother of his two sons, Savannah Brinson, was recently profiled by Harper’s Bazaar magazine; the interview revealed a lot about the woman who has been by BronBron’s side for the last 8 years — primarily that she’s not into rocking the boat — even if that means being a baby mama instead of a wife, and commuting back and forth between Miami and Cleveland. Poor thang!

One thing we were not surprised to hear was that Savannah wasn’t thrilled about Lebron’s decision to go to Miami. After all, who wants their man playing in a city that is a hotbed for HOES? At the end of the day though, Savannah just rolled with the punches:

“Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is great: You go for three days and get some sun, and it’s time to go home,” she explains. But the weather helped win her over. “When they told me it doesn’t get any colder than 50 degrees, that sold me. We get below-zero weather in Cleveland. … I can’t wait to have a sunny Christmas,” she says. “It will definitely be an adjustment, but we’ll make it. We’re not complaining.”

“Whatever LeBron felt was comfortable, I’m with him,” she continues. “I just love him so much. We’re soul mates.”

It’s just such devotion that makes James gush about his longtime love. “A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And she’s that,” he says. “She’s got my back, and I love her for that.”

While James settles in on his new home court, Brinson plans to split her time between Miami and Akron. She didn’t want to uproot her sons—LeBron Jr., five, and Bryce Maximus, three—from their neighborhood, where LeBron Jr. will be starting kindergarten in the fall. “Cleveland is home,” she says. “Nothing is going to change about that.”

Some cynics might argue that long distance and superstar athlete equals disaster. And if VH1’s hit series “Basketball Wives” is to be believed, Miami groupies are as gorgeous as they are aggressive. Fresh from the Midwest and flush with cash, James could be quite the target. But Brinson isn’t nervous about their partnership. “I’m not worried,” she declares, sounding assured. “We’re good. Our relationship is good.”

Her mother, Jennifer, who has been minding the kids while Brinson talks, makes a good point: “Don’t you think he knows the difference between ruthlessness and love?” she asks. “If LeBron was going to do something shady, he can do that around the corner. He doesn’t have to go to Miami.”

In fact, it’s their honesty with each other, Brinson says, that has sustained the couple’s relationship through all the hoopla: “We communicate very well. Before, there might have been issues that I was afraid to address, but now we keep it real with each other.”

Whoa Whoa Whoa… wait a minute? That started out sweet, but ummm is this broad delusional? You want your kid to start kindergarten in Cleveland? It’s kindergarten we’re talking about here — not high school. SMH. Savannah you better take Little Bron and Bryce and find a school in Miami before your man ends up gallivanting with Gabrielle Unions buddies.

A few weeks back we asked whether Savannah would end up wifed up like LaLa, but in her interview with Harpers Bazaar she plays the extra passive role:

She says a wedding is not on the horizon, though she has been dreaming about that day since she was six. “I’ve definitely not put a fire under his ass,” she says. “I would never rush him to do something like that. We’re really comfortable with the way things are now. And it’s not up to me. When it happens, it happens.

“We talk about it. If we do it, I want it to be forever,” she continues. Until then, Brinson knows that the blogosphere will continue to refer to her as James’s baby mama. She’s not bothered by the description but makes it clear that she feels like she’s more than a catchphrase. “I’m the mother of his children,” she says proudly. “I’m not a baby mama. There’s a lot more to me than that.”

Wow Savannah, Lebron has really got you trained. You’d never rush him to do something like that? Something like the right thing you mean? Sorry but, last time we checked rushing him would have meant a ring BEFORE you popped out two school-age children. Eight years with that man and you’re content being his ‘sidekick.’

Is this chick settling or just smart enough to play the role???

    Whatever works for her. I most definitely wouldn’t settle for being a “sidekick” (SMH) or a baby mama, but if she’s cool with that then I guess it’s all good.

  • kuntakinte

    We will see wat she has to say in 2 years! Lol jus ask dwayne wade’s wife for some advice and don’t be sooo sure of urself baby gal.. But I wish them luck

  • Matix B

    She should have waited and used condoms, IUD or patch. Some women are too quick to just breed for a man, just like that. Having kids with someone is not an indication that your relationship is going well. It’s in Labron’s favor not to marry this woman, I’m not sure if she realizes that.

  • bbi

    The only reason why a women will say she’s happy with not being married to the man she loves. Is because she knows he aint gonna propose to her anytime soon so she tries to make it like its her descision and she’s happy with just being the baby mother and girlfriend. Dumb arse

    Follow me on twitter.babyisako

  • that's what she said

    @ its me

    100% agree

  • DaHonestTruth ~ Always Keepin it REAL

    Well if it works for them then the best of luck to them!! I wonder what situation the people up in here judging this couple who apparently was working well together with their relationship are doing in their own relationships or who quickly they’ve been husbanded or wifed up! With so many marriages ending in divorce today who really has the answer to what any couple should be doing as far as matrimony?? Get married to soon and for the wrong reasons and you end up like that dumba s s clown Tiger Woods. Give these kids a break!!

  • JusMe

    She knows what she’s doing! She already has a man in Cleveland…Prob one of Lebron’s ex-teammates! Yall really think she’s staying for kindergarten??? GTHOH LOL!

  • LOLA

    They already are married just not officially..they doing everything married couples do ..wats left?

  • Lala

    I say we stay out of grown folks business. But Savannah girl dont be a fool, get your a$$ to Miami full time. Cleveland’s groupies dont have ANYTHING on what Miami is gonna offer. Be prepared not ignorant….love or not!

  • DenialRiver

    …sadly, some black women have chosen to go the ‘baby mama’ route, which is detrimental to the black family…

    …is it so wrong to ask these sistas to THINK before deciding to open their legs to those who will most likely never marry them?…smmfh…and why is it like pulling teeth for a black male to marry the mother of their children?..

  • Littleenglander

    No she isn’t not smart, she is a doormat. Savannah (and women like her) do not rock the boat with their men, because they may get a response they don’t like.

    Sounds like Lebron is having his cake and eating it too.

    Why would you want be the mother of a man’s children, when he isn’t even prepared to stand up and make a legal and religious statement that he is commited to you for life?

    I doubt he will marry her ever, she’s given him everything on a plate.

  • canteen

    glok’s——- profile….. he is a lone wolf. who travels with a small dog around the united states in a camper/pick-up truck. that has retired from verizon as a lineman. he is very anti-obama and a rightwing fanatic. his kind listens to rush aka pig vomit all day and then gets on line w/ his race hate rhetoric. and is very unstable mentally.

  • Ms. Licious

    “Sidekick” seriously??? In the end I hope she does a Kim Porter on him. They will never marry and I smell a Tiger Woods-like scandal in his future!

  • dlastqueen

    I can only make comments on what I’ve read and I find it offensive that Samantha is GOOD ENOUGH to have 3 babies with LeBron and live with him…but she isn’t good enough to marry?? Then she’s talking like that’s not what she wants…c’mon now…if you having his babies, you want him as your husband. If they’re too young to get married then they’re definitely too young to be engaging in the benefits of a marriage plus having all those babies.

  • DRB

    I don’t believe in marriage really. And the only bad thing about not being married is the title, baby mama or girlfriend with however many kids.

  • leave em alone

    They are happy and they look really good together. And that shes not rushing her man into marriage,only shows what classy woman she is!!! for example- Beyonce only married jay, so he stays and she doesnt have to start a fam with him. < thats what i call trashyyyy and business marriage. lmao
