LeBron James shared a personal message to his father - who he's never seen or met - on Instagram this week, and it's not what you would expect. At all.

In discussing his life with GQ, James opened up about how the specific circumstances of his single-parent upbringing helped make him the man he is.

The Huffington Post repackaged James' quote as a photo, which the NBA star liked so much, he put it up on Instagram and shared it with fans. The quote:

LeBron James' Note to Dad

"Like, 'Wow, Dad, you know what, I don't know you, I have no idea who you are, but because of you is part of the reason who I am today.'"

"The fuel that I use - you not being there - it's part of the reason I grew up to become who I am. It's part of the reason why I want to be hands-on with my endeavors."

"And to be able to put my guys that's with me now in position. Like Maverick Carter, my right-hand guy in business. Rich Paul, my agent. Randy Mims, my friend - he's my manager, you know."

"So me in a position allowing people around me to grow, that maybe wouldn't have happened if I had two parents, two sisters, a dog, and a picket fence, you know?"

"Because of you Pops! Thanks all along. Could have said why me with u not being there but look what I made of myself," James wrote in his Instagram caption.

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.

LeBron James' mom, Gloria James, was arrested for assault last week.

This you likely know by now if you keep up on your celeb gossip and/or NBA news. But what you haven't seen before now is RAW VIDEO of the incident!

Unlike the surveillance footage of Gloria ranting at the cops after she got popped, video of the actual attack casts her in a (slightly) more positive light.

During the encounter, the valet parking guy, Rockfeller Sorel, takes an advancing step towards Gloria and bumps her before the infamous slap occurred.

Gloria got in his face prior to that, but he may have provoked James to a degree too. He also takes aggressive steps at her post-slap. Watch below:

Gloria James, mother of NBA superstar LeBron James, was arrested for assault last week after an altercation with a valet parking guy, Rockefeller Sorel.

The police who busted her weren't treated much better, according to the surveillance tape, obtained by WPLG in Miami, where the arrest went down.

Video shows Gloria James held in a holding room at the Miami Beach police HQ. LeBron's mom yells at cops, who at one point had to wipe her face.

She also tried to break free of her handcuffs. Spoiler alert: Fail.

The valet who claims he was slapped in the face by LeBron James' mom Gloria James says he is just too traumatized by the experience to resume working.

Parking cars at the Fountainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach can be tough when you're experiencing what is TOTALLY a severe case of PTSD like he is, for sure.

Sources close to Rockfeller Sorel say he's taken an extended leave of absence and has been "very depressed" since Gloria James clocked him in the face.

LeBROMMA DRAMA: Gloria James was arrested early Thursday a.m.

Gloria, 43, was arrested over the incident - after which Sorel sought medical attention but showed minor, if any visible injuries - and charged with assault.

She was a big pain with the police as well, reports indicate.

Rockfeller Sorel will meet with his lawyer Monday to discuss his legal options, which is a nice way of saying he will be filing a GIANT ASS LAWSUIT shortly.

Cops were called about an incident at 4:47 in which Gloria was accused of attacking a valet. She was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault.

It's unclear at this time what sparked Gloria James' altercation with a Miami parking attendant, or whether the misdemeanor charges against her will be pursued.

The valet wasn't arrested, and Gloria has been released from custody. A rep for the hotel confirmed the James incident, but had no further comment.

LeBron, meanwhile, had a tough night in Miami as well. The Heat lost to the Bucks, a blow to their chances of clinching the #2 seed in the East. Weak.

UPDATE: More details have emerged about Gloria's rampage ...
