LeBron James’ mother settles suit with Fontainebleau Miami Beach valet
That’s the Christmas spirit!
Miami Heat superstar LeBron James’ mother has agreed to settle a nasty lawsuit brought against her by a valet she slapped because he didn’t bring her car fast enough, Gossip Extra has learned.
The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, although a source familiar with the case said Gloria James will be paying ex-Fontainebleau Miami Beach valet Rock Feller Sorel for his trouble.
Neither Chris Lyons nor Sandy Becher, Gloria’s attorneys, commented.
A legal source says attorneys are still haggling with LeBron’s publicists over a damage-control statement about the deal.
Bob Stok, Sorel’s attorney, wouldn’t comment on the details but said Sorel’s happy to have the incident behind him.
“He was embarrassed and shamed by what happened,” Stok said.
The lawsuit was filed nearly two years ago in the wake of a fracas that ended with Ms. James arrested on battery and disorderly intoxication charges.
