Lebron James Sued For Millions By Man Claiming To Be His Father

All of a sudden, a 55-year-old man that goes by the name of Leicester Bryce Stovell comes out and claims he's NBA Basketball Player Lebron James father. Just 24 hours in advance of James getting ready to making a highly publicized announcement of what team he will be playing for next season.

According to TMZ, Leicester is suing for $4 million from both Lebron and his mother, -- claiming fraud, defamation, and misrepresentation.

Here's what he's claiming that went down: Leicesters says he met Gloria in a D.C. area bar in 1984. He had unprotected sex with her on the night they met, and he later found out she was 15-years-old. He was 29. Gloria moved back to her hometown Ohio, and returned several months later informing that she was pregnant with a boy named Lebron, never specifically identifying the father.

Leicester isn't just nothing--He's a Princeton graduate who earned a law degree from the University of Chicago, then became a Senior Legal Advisor for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In his suit, Stovell claims he has a very clear recollection of the night he had "consensual sexual relations" with Gloria -- in fact, he even remembers apologizing for his sub-par performance.

Leicester claims Gloria went back to her hometown in Ohio after they hooked up -- but returned several months later to inform him she was pregnant with a boy named LeBron ... but she never specifically identified the father.

Leicester -- a self-proclaimed high school star athlete -- says he remembers telling Gloria, "Well, if he's mine, make sure he plays basketball." He claims that was the last time he saw Gloria for more than 20 years.

According to the docs, Leicester claims he reconnected with Gloria over the phone in 2007 -- when he began to think he could be LeBron's father ... partly because they look almost identical. Leicester also notes that when he saw LeBron at an NBA game he was, "struck by our similarity in appearance ... James and I are nearly if not identical height and pigmentation and have very similar athletic body types."

Leicester claims during the 2007 phone call -- Gloria denied ever meeting him -- 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 -- through his lawyer -- agreed to take a DNA paternity test.

Leicester claims he was given results that showed he was not LeBron's dad ... but several months later, he began to suspect that the results were tampered with ... and Gloria and LeBron were behind the fraud.

So why would LeBron participate in such a cover-up? Leicester claims it's all, "due to anger at perceived abandonment and conflict arising from his image as a successful fatherless child from the projects."

He also claims that Gloria had "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.'"

Leicester is now seeking $4 million from both LeBron and his mother -- claiming fraud, defamation and misrepresentation.

And check this out -- Leicester also points out that LeBron named his 2nd son "Bryce" -- and claims it's no coincidence. As we said, Leicester's middle name is Bryce.

LeBron's reps could not be reached for comment.
This is ridiculous! Even though you're claiming to be his father, why are you suing your claimed-to-be son for $4 million? He's making things look as if he is really after the money. The whole story makes sense, but then again doesn't. Why now? Why $4 million? We need more questions, and answers.

He's also apologizing to Gloria for giving her bad D***! It couldn't be that bad, if she was only 15 years old.

Lebron James will be announcing his decision in a 60 minute special on ESPN tonight at 9pm. Lebron and his team will sell all advertising and everything will go towards the Boy and Girls Club of America.
