LeBron James has been the center of attention for quite some time heading into the 2010 NBA offseason, but the last thing he could have seen coming was answering questions about a potential affair between his mother and his own Cleveland Cavaliers teammate, Delonte West.
The NBA superstar responded through lawyers to the rumors earlier today stating, "The report is false and defamatory. No thinking person could possibly believe such a rubbish."
His legal team also issued a cease and desist letter to terezowens.com, the original publisher of the story. They threatened legal action to those who didn't comply.
However, terezowens.com stood by their story and their claims that an affair was going on. They even took it a step further and published an update on the situation. They boasted that "popular news outlet" Examiner.com took on the story and quoted them.
"Another source close to LeBron James claims to have had the superstar confide in him, saying that unlike Owens’ claim that sex between Delonte West and Gloria James went on for a couple of months, it really allegedly occurred once, either during or before the MVP party celebration wherein James was in attendance and the alcohol reportedly flowed."
