Lauren Perdue on LeBron James Dinner Invite: Um Wuuuutttt?!?

by at . Comments

Olympian Lauren Perdue is one of America's top swimmers, but she's making even more based on some Tweets she sent out - about LeBron James.

Just before the Olympics, Perdue, who competes today in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay, wrote, "Lebron James just invited me to dinner... Um wuuuutttt?!?"

Around that time, this photo showed up on Perdue's Instagram account. That is most definitely LeBron James, NBA champion and Team USA member:

Lauren told the Charlotte Observer today that before the Games began, the "Dream Team" hung out with the swimmers at a USA Olympic function.

At that point, LeBron did indeed invite Perdue to dinner.

"He was kind of joking," she said. "But he was basically like, 'Would you like to eat with me at the dining hall?' And I said, 'Um, I'm sorry, I have a curfew.'"

"So I turned [LeBron] down, yeah."

While unexpected, the request seems harmless enough, and it's unfair to assume any sleazy intent by LeBron, who is engaged to Savannah Brinson.

It's just the dining hall, a very public place. Don't expect him in Kobe's doghouse anytime soon ... unless Savannah is taking cues from Vanessa Bryant.

Omg were still living back in the day where ppl ate only with "their kind". I thought we were in 2012 and we got over that bullsh*t. If by this point your still racist, u probably haven't learned much about life and haven't looked around. We live in a melting pot full of different races, get over it!!

WTF everyone makin this a race thing, he just invited her to dinner, nothing more, nothing less, he's been with Brinson since high school. Get of the dudes back. It's pretty nice if you ask me. And fuck this talk of: "Stick with ur own" and "daters out of race are dope" this arrogance and lack of cultural awareness is the shit that really hold ALL of us back.

How did this conversation become about race?? I think the invite was totally taken out of context and I believe this bitch put the story out there for publicity. Lebron's been with the same black woman since college and you have never heard of him partying, sleeping around or getting in any kind of trouble. White bitches get on my nerves thinking all black men want them. And the fact that people are on here saying "stick with your own" is exactlly right... For them. I wouldn't want you ignorant fucks polluting my bloodline anyway.

Any white (male or female) who dates outside of their race is a dope.You the white man have the best for you (the white woman) and you the white woman have the best for you (the white man).Know this whenever a white person has children with a non-white the white genes ALWAYS lose and the children do not resemble the mother or father.White is right-white on!
