LeBron James‘ attorney has fired off a cease and desist email — finally denying the fast-spreading, and disturbing rumor of a sex scandal involving LeBron’s mom and his teammate Delonte West.
TMZ obtained a copy of the email sent to terezowens.com — the sports blog that first reported on Friday that LeBron’s mother Gloria was allegedly sleeping with Delonte. In the email, Frederick Nance — attorney for LeBron and Gloria — says the report is “categorically false and per se defamatory.” 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’ playoff loss to the Boston Celtics with this theory: LeBron finds out about Delonte and his mom before game 4 … Cavs go on to lose games 4, 5, and 6.
The guys at terezowens tell us, “We think it’s a little fishy that they waited almost 4 days to fire this off.” They say they stand by their source, and they’re consulting with their lawyers. The story is still up on their site … for now.
Here’s another twist on the story, from WCWP Sports
Crazy, I know. But Terez Owens is a pal of mine and I know has connections. He has no reason to make this up and it could be the reason for LeBron James’ play in games 4, 5 & 6. Terez is also the man who broke the story of Reggie Bush & Kim Kardashian’s 1st breakup; only he broke it over a week before the mainstream media ran with it.
We’re going to have Terez Owens on tonight at 6:15pm Eastern. Listen in on 88.1FM in Long Island and on WCWPSports.com. Make sure you check it out. We’ll post the interview later.Follow paulmbanks
