LeBron James’ former teammate Delonte West has once agin denied a rumor that he slept with LeBron’s mom Gloria Jones.
How many times does he have to deny this stupid rumor before people will believe it? Why do some people stubbornly cling to this rumor when there is not an iota of evidence to support it?
Even Delonte’s denial is being questioned by a few of my readers, even though the man clearly said “Not at all.”
Finally, LeBron’s former teammate has been asked directly about the gossip. According to the Boston Globe, a reporter asked West if he slept with Gloria James.
“Not at all,” West replied. “I come from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent, so not at all.” West, now with the Celtics, is looking forward to playing with his new team. “There’s a lot of excitement here,” he said.
The reason Delonte said he comes “from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent,” is because the rumor itself is shockingly disrespectful to Ms. James and LeBron.
Thanks to loyal reader Deirdre for the tip.
