Does LeBron Have the SEC in His Blood?
This is just bizarre for some reason, an ex-SEC lawyer insists he was the one to knock up LeBron James' mother (who was 15 at the time of their alleged one night stand) and now wants $4 million for, uh, damages or pain and suffering or Lord knows what.
Dude, you came, that's the only prize you get, don't get greedy now.
A former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission attorney who claims to be the biological father of LeBron James filed a lawsuit seeking at least $4 million from the basketball superstar and his mother for denying paternity.
Leicester Bryce Stovell, who left the SEC in 2002 after resolving a legal complaint against the agency, filed the suit against James and his mother, Gloria, in federal court in Washington June 23. Stovell accuses her of “maliciously” denying that they met at a bar in 1984 and had a “one-night, unprotected sexual relationship.”
“It is overwhelmingly likely that he is the son of me and defendant Gloria James,” Stovell wrote in the 22-page complaint. “He also likely is aware that I am his father.”
According to Stovell’s complaint, LeBron James “has come to direct and control, conspire in, or knowingly or recklessly aid and abet his mother’s unjustifiable attempts to prevent acknowledgement that I am his father” because of his “anger at perceived abandonment and conflict arising from his image as a successful fatherless child from the projects.”
Stovell settled with the SEC in 2002 for $230,000.
