Considering LeBron James is one of the biggest celebrities in the world, it’s not surprising every aspect of his life is constantly under a microscope. When athletes reach celebrity status, that unfortunately includes their families. However, someone like Gloria James cannot seem to do herself any favors and remain out of the spotlight. Whether it’s allegedly sleeping with Delonte West or being publicly scolded by her son, Gloria seems to love her some attention.
According to an ESPN report, Gloria was arrested by Miami Beach police early Thursday morning after allegedly assaulting a valet worker at the Fontainebleau Hotel. She was supposedly upset because her car was taking too long to be delivered. I guess that’s pretty much all you could get upset with a valet worker over, so that part of the story makes sense.
The valet worker, Sorel Rockfeller, has several witnesses who say James’ mother assaulted him. Police said Gloria had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and her eyes were bloodshot. She was released to Heat executive Steve Stowe and issued a promise to appear on court on charges of simple battery and disorderly conduct.
Bravo, Mrs. James. Lord knows your son doesn’t already have enough public relations problems of his own.Google+
