Lawyer: Delonte West Not Putting it to LeBron's Mom

by at . Comments

LeBron James' attorney has fired off a cease and desist email in response to the disturbingly rumor that LeBron's teammate Delonte West is nailing his mom.

The email to - the sports blog that first reported on Friday that LeBron's mother Gloria was allegedly sleeping with Delonte - was rather curt.

In it, Frederick Nance, attorney for LeBron and Gloria James, says the West rumor is "categorically false and per se defamatory." Eh, probably a little of both.

Nance adds, "No thinking person could possibly believe such rubbish."

The report, which also spread as a viral email, was supposed to explain the Cleveland Cavaliers' sorry Eastern Conference Semifinal loss to the Boston Celtics.

Gloria James

Rumors of a Gloria James-Delonte West affair surfaced after Cleveland's elimination from the NBA playoffs. But is there anything to this other than salacious gossip?

The theory went like this: LeBron found out about Delonte West putting it to his mom before Game 4. LeBron was despondent and the Cavs lost Games 4-6.

Absurd, right? Probably ... although someone still buys it.

Interestingly, terezowens responded to TMZ regarding the email it got from Team LeBron: "We think it's a little fishy they waited almost four days to fire this off."

They say they stand by their source, and they're consulting with their own lawyers. The LeBron-Gloria-Delonte story is still up on their site ... at least for now.
