Wednesday, Apr 13, 2011 6:10PM
Days after NBA superstar LeBron James' mother became the center of attention for getting arrested over an assault charge in Miami, footage from the incident has now leaked online.
The footage appears to show LeBron's mother, Gloria, in a dispute with the attacked hotel valet parking employee.
Last week, Lebron's outspoken mother Gloria James was arrested after allegedly attacking a parking attendant at the Fountain Bleau Hotel in Miami. According to reports, she attempted to hit the man with her purse, missed, and then followed it up with a slap to his face. Well, after looking at the video footage of the incident that surfaced this week, I've come to the conclusion that the parking attendant initiated the incident. It looks as though he pushed Lebron's mother before she retaliated by swinging her purse. She eventually fell down. (Necole Bitchie)
LeBron reportedly offered to compensate the valet employee following the incident.
Check this out..we received a tip that Lebron offered the valet $150,000 and he turned it down. Stupid a** Rockfeller Sorel (the valet) went to the hospital for a slap and he thinks he can get millions from Lebron James. Its good that this footage came out because it looks like he will not get shit. Karma is a bitch, and greed is her sister. Looks like Ms. James can sue Fountainbleau for the valet aggressively hitting her first. (Baller Alert)
New reports also claim LeBron's mother issued a racial slur during the dispute.
The attorney for the valet who is suing LeBron James' mom tells TMZ ... during the confrontation, Gloria James allegedly told the valet, "You don't know who I am, you f**king n**ger. Tomorrow, you won't havea job" Angela L. Cohn, the attorney for valet Rockfeller Sorel, tells us, Gloria James spewed the hateful remark just as the confrontation became physical. Gloria was arrested after the incident, and TMZ just broke the story that the valet is suing her for assault and battery. As for our earlier story showing video of the confrontation, Cohn says any intimation that the valet was the aggressor is untrue. (TMZ)
Details of what took place hit the Internet late last week.
Gloria James was arrested early Thursday morning by Miami Beach police after she reportedly assaulted a hotel valet worker. Police said that several witnesses supported the account of the valet, Sorel Rockefeller, who claimed that James assaulted him because it was taking too long to have her car delivered. Police said that when they arrived at the Fontainebleau Hotel at 4:47 a.m., James had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and her eyes were bloodshot. She was taken to Miami Beach police headquarters and issued a Promise to Appear on charges of simple battery and disorderly conduct. (New York Daily News)
