Friday, Apr 15, 2011 4:45PM
NBA superstar LeBron James' mother, Gloria, has reportedly been hit with a $15,000 lawsuit by the Miami hotel valet parking victim she struck last week.
According to reports, her victim claims to have endured multiple damages following the attack.
This week a video surfaced of Gloria James, LeBron James' mother, slapping Rockfeller Sorel, a valet of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami. In return, Rockfeller has slapped Gloria with a lawsuit for $15,000, but without some head scratching from the public. If you watch the video carefully, James wasn't the only person in the wrong that night, if at all. However, in the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Rockfeller claims to have suffered pain, emotional distress, humiliation, mental anguish, and loss of capacity for enjoyment of life. (VIBE)
Footage from the altercation landed online earlier this week.
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)
The latest 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)
