Leicester Bryce Stovell: I'm LeBron James' Dad!

by at . Comments

Forget rumors of Delonte West nailing his mom this spring. LeBron James is now being sued a dude who claims he slept with Gloria James, oh, say about 25 years ago.

LeBron, whose HUGE decision about where he will play next season coincidentally airs tonight on ESPN, is accused of tampering with evidence, as is Gloria.

Leicester Bryce Stovell, 55, claims in his lawsuit that he is the biological father of James and alleges that the NBA star and his mom covered up this fact.

He says he met Gloria in a D.C. area bar in 1984, had unprotected sex with her the night they met, and later found out she was 15 at the time. He was 29.

Interestingly, the guy isn't your stereotypical deadbeat dad.

This guy says he's LeBron James' dad. See a resemblance?

Rather, he's a Princeton and University of Chicago Law School grad who went on to be a senior legal adviser to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In any case, Stovell claims Gloria went back to her hometown in Ohio after they hooked up, but returned several months later to inform him that she was pregnant with a boy named LeBron, although she never specifically identified the father.

Stovell claims he reconnected with Gloria by phone in 2007, when he began to think he could be LeBron's dad, partly because they look almost identical. Leicester notes that when he saw LeBron play, he was "struck by our similarity in appearance.

Leicester Bryce Stovell claims during the 2007 call, Gloria James threatened to have him physically harmed and told him, "LeBron's money is for his children."

A few days after the phone call, Leicester claims LeBron James - through his attorney - agreed to take a DNA paternity test. Stovel claims he was given results that showed he was not LeBron's dad ... but suspects Gloria and LeBron are behind a fraud.

Why would he do that?

"Anger at perceived abandonment and conflict arising from his image as a successful fatherless child from the projects," Leicester Bryce Stovell theorizes.

He claims Gloria "fabricated" a story about LeBron's real father for the "one dimensional commercial image-making purpose ... to make [LeBron's] life suggestive of Spike Lee's popular 1998 sports drama film, He Got Game."

Biographical information on James says his biological father, Anthony McClelland, was an ex-con who abandoned Gloria to be a single mom at age 16.

Leicester, who notes that LeBron named his son Bryce, is seeking $4 million from LeBron and Gloria, claiming fraud, defamation and misrepresentation.

Wow. Most of the time said claims involve the millionaire athlete fathering a kid (cough, Tiger Woods), not vice versa. Is there any chance this is true?

James' camp has denounced the suit as a blatant attempt to capitalize on the attention LeBron will receive in the run-up to his announcement tonight.

Do you believe it? More importantly, where will LeBron end up?

good thing the statute of limitations on rape in ohio is 20 years...looks like hell be getting off freee of rape arlene


1. Mr. Leicester Bryce Stovell should be put in jail. The charge is rape. Look at all these preachers, priests, school teachers,doctors, and football players who have being charge with crimes. Rape is a crime.
2. Mr. Leicester Bryce Stovell did not pay anything so he should not collect anything.
3. What a low down dog, to sue your abandon child.
4. The only thing that should be given to him is jail time for being a predator or child rapist.
5. We as women do not feel sorry for his stupid azz. This young man is working for what he has and his father should do the same.
6. He need to read the Bible.
7. He is a low life broke attorney that is bring shame to the American people for working for a government agency that allow him do such thing.
8. My advice to Mr. Leicester Bryce Stovell get a life.


I personally think that Lebron and his mom should sue him for $4 million for back ordered child support. what an idiot...


Very, very convienent for him to come forward
now that LeBron James is worth tons of money!!!!


rayday - you are talking like a nutcase. We are all guessing about things that only Ms. James really knows. Which woman tells a child -Your father is Leicester Bryce Stovell and you must hate him/ or teaches the child to hate him. Then the child who clearly adores his mother, grows up, then turns around and names his own child BRYCE. Remove your own experience from this and think a little more logically.


With this suit, he might get the court to compel a DNA test. The results would confirm or refute the previous test Stovell claims was a deliberate fraud. Interesting that this Princeton grad w/ a respectable law degree and professional background is caught up in classic ghetto mess.


and thats just nasty he did it with a 15 year old wen he was 29 he should be sent to prison


now he wants to be his father since he has all that money but wen he was poor he didnt want anything to do with him


Who is this guys lawyer? His logic makes no sense. He claims that Lebron wants to maintain the one dimensional image of a successful kid from a single parent home...Well duh!!! If he is his father or not the facts remain the same....he is a success story of kid from the projects and a single parent home all you did Mr. Stovell was show up 25 years later and got the nerve to sue your son that you have done absolutely nothing for!! And yes self proclaimed daddy, "He's got game!"
