Valet Sues Gloria James, Loses Passion For Life

by at . Comments

LeBron James' mom, Gloria James, caused the valet she allegedly slapped last week to lose his "capacity for enjoyment of life." Seriously, he's suing over this.

Rockfeller Sorel wants $15,000 minimum, according to his lawsuit.

The suit, filed Tuesday in Miami-Dade County, accuses Gloria of assault and battery during the incident at the Fountainbleu Hotel (click here to see the video).

Sorel claims to have suffered - pain, emotional distress, humiliation, mental anguish, and perhaps most stunningly, the loss of capacity for enjoyment of life.

Rockfeller Sorel will be our legal MVP if he can pull this off.


OMG. Really? Should she have slapped this guy, NO, should she have to face legal consequences as a result, YES!! But if this guy is so sensitive that he has lost his ability to enjoy his life over it then that is his problem. Not a problem that deserves a 15K+ payday. He had no medical expenses as a result of this and if he needed a day or two off too recoup fine. Let her pay his usual salary for those few days. But this incident is just not worthy of a giant payoff. Legally the guy had no damages (as in medical bills) to sue for. He is just trying to squeeze money out of the mother of someone who is famous, thinking that somehow the famous person will have to pony up the cash. Not so. James may have big bucks but he is not required to pay lawsuits against his mom. No judge on the planet would grant this lawsuit.
