A valet is suing the mother of NBA superstar LeBron James after she allegedly assaulted him both physically and verbally. The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday and alleges “emotional distress, humiliation, mental anguish and lose of capacity of enjoyment of one’s life.”
The valet, Rock Feller Sorel, says that he was hit by Gloria James early in the morning on April 7 at the Fountainbleau hotel. He is seeking $15,000 in damages.
Three thoughts that come to mind as I watch the video of LeBron James’ mother getting into a fight with the valet at a hotel:
1) What the hayell? – Yes, if my mama ever acts this way, she and I might have to have a nasty conversation or two. I truly feel sorry for LeBron, who has been embarrassed by his mother in the past on multiple occasions.
2) This is what happens when we drink too much in public and forget that our child is a celebrity. When you’re in the public eye, everyone is always watching. You can’t sneeze, use the bathroom, or buy groceries without people scrutinizing every little thing you do. Alcohol reduces our inhibitions and makes us unaware of our surroundings. That’s why I don’t drink.
