The LAPD is investigating vandalism at LeBron James’ home as a hate crime. Someone spray painted “ni–er” on the gate leading to James $20.9 million Brentwood, Calif. mansion on Tuesday.

Police are reviewing video surveillance footage from neighboring homes to identify the vandals. James was not home at the time of the incident, according to the NY Daily News.

“Oh, it’s a hate crime. It’s a person who has a problem with him, obviously, ” a source at LAPD’s West LA division told The News. “It’s an active case right now and detectives are there, going over the scene, looking for any video.”

LeBron James mansion

James and his Cleveland Cavaliers face the Golden State Warriors in game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday at Oakland’s Oracle Arena.

James has been to the NBA Finals so often that he reportedly bought the 9,440 square-foot, 6 bedroom mansion to stay when he’s defending his title.

A neighbor who lives 3 doors down from James was appalled by the “horrific” vandalism.

“I’m embarrassed that this would even go on in this country. At this particular time though, I suppose I’m not surprised, because there is an increase in incivility and hatred of others who are different or not the same,” said Mary Kay Wulf.

Another neighbor told The News that James, who is 6-foot-8, purchased the home from a very tall neighbor. She said the house is custom made for very tall people.

    I love the way Labron’s wife ( to lazy to look her name up, no disrespect tho ) keeps a low profile.

  • JV

    She was with him in Cleveland at the World Series.. James and his teammates were having a blast.. you could tell she hated baseball and was MISERABLE being there! But I appreciate her going to the game with him regardless. I hope they catch the idiot that messed up his gate though.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Clown move around and stop asking dumb questions.

  • Miany

    I like her.. comes across as real down to earth, unlike a lot of these thotties.. shii I like the whole family (even his momma turned down a bit)

  • Miany

    I think a stupid person would write “Bron SUCKS” or something else like that.. a random black person would be like “n*iggah you BLEW IT” or something.. for a person to take the time out of their day to bypass security and write “n*gga??” Im inclined to think they are using the word as a slur.. just racist.

  • stav

    You mean the inferior feeling racist that defaced this mans property!

    I wish racists realized how small minded they are when they do things like this. How can they be superior as they think when they do such idiotic things? Proof is in the pudding.

    It’s an act of insecurity. A strong black presence creates fear and a feeling of uneasiness.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    We have some of the worst racist on the west coast, and a lot of neo-nazi groups. I’m not surprised. SMH!

  • understandingoverignorance

    Los Angeles is being invaded by White Trash from the East Coast who are narrow minded and they are shocked Black People out here is doing the dam thing.

  • GuestSTAR

    Yeah, but I bet they wouldn’t roll up to the East Bay, specifically Oakland, Richmond, East Side San Jose, Hunter’s Point, Bay Point in SF, Compton or Long Beach in SoCal with that racist sht. They wouldn’t make it in or out alive.
    Last weekend I picked someone up at the Sacramento Amtrak station when two neo Nazi’s got off a bus, smiling, laughing, both were tatted up with Swastika, dressed in orange pants, white tee shirts, buzz cuts, both carrying identical clear plastic bags with identical paperwork inside. You could visibly tell they were fresh out the penitentiary. I just know they were headed to one of those Klan Land small towns in and around Sac.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I have an idea on how to stop graffiti and vandalism and it goes like this. Once you have been caught vandalizing or writing graffiti on someone else’s property, you must vandalize your “OWN” home with graffiti or whatever you used to vandalize someone else’s property. If you want to represent your hood or gang, then there is no better way to do it then with your own house. So, if you put your gang sign on someones business, then by law your entire home should be spray painted with your gang symbols. Now everyone knows where to find you and you can truly represent your hood or your gang. If you vandalize someone else’s property, same thing. If you the parents pay rent, the land lord is allowed to put you and your family in the street, that you represent so hard, to prevent having his or her property vandalized due to some kid’s ignorance. That’s right, put OUT!!! At the end of the day, you get back everything you put out. Being homeless would be a b&tch and parents would make sure their kids were never near an aresol can again. And after the kid realizes what he put his family through, I’m sure he or she wouldn’t want to do it again. It would be a painful, but powerful lesson on respecting other people’s property.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    He has multiple homes. He works in Hollywood, LA during the off season.

  • bhavana

    The chosen one ?

  • Justlooknout

    That old gate is dreadful. No privacy. He has more than enough to have armed guard and 5 dozens of cameras.

  • imright

    isnt he in a gated community ?? cameras ??

  • WutizaGRANNY!
  • free

    my respect for savvy and him as a couple grow each year. to think that they started out so young, are still together, scandal free, and she keeps it 100 at all times.

  • sunni_daze

    I agree, but I think adults did this.

  • sunni_daze

    You mean Mid West then. East Coast is used to it or should be.

  • XoXo

    I hate this happened to this beautiful family. May God send His angels to protect them.

    Let’s also pray for August Alsina. May the Good Lord which is able to heal all diseases touch his body from head to toes, in the mighty name of Jesus.

  • XoXo

    I agree. Like in Louisiana, they make sex offenders post signs on their yard notifying residents that live in their area that they are an offender. I think that’s fair, and a fair warning to the hard working citizens that live in their surroundings, that they have a piece of shyt living amongst them.

  • KIm

    Damn. I hate that they did this to LeBron James and his family..they couldn’t take that BS over to Michael Jordan cooning ass house?

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • Renee26

    I’m glad they didn’t get past the gate….WOW a $20 million second home…must be nice. The groundskeepers can paint over it

  • Renee26

    What’s wrong with August??

  • Renee26

    Good Morning Lady!

  • Renee26

    I was like why they checking the neighbors cameras…doesn’t he have his own?? IJS with a mansion of that size and his celebrity status he should have his own cameras, especially at the gate

  • Renee26

    Naw don’t blame the Mid West lol they love Lebron …those are ignorant Cali natives mad that Ni66a in their neighborhood….the ignorance is everywhere

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • XoXo

    He has a liver disease. My heart goes out to him.

  • Renee26

    Cali living…it all depends on the state and area you live in…the cost of living is outrageous in Cali

  • Renee26

    Awww poor thing!! A while back he was having issues with his sight…can he catch a break gesh!!

  • sunni_daze

    I will agree ignorance is everywhere.

  • Justlooknout

    Maybe for a 100,000k home, but it will be sandblasted and restored to it’s original look.

  • Justlooknout

    Yeah, I read his interview with Jada awhile back and did more research and he has genetic disorder. Hoping for the best for him. Maybe he can get a transplant.

  • Yoni7

    Mike was probably the one that did it.

  • Look@m3

    They will hear about it regardless…better now than later. Then they will be that 1% of black folk I don’t get talmbout they never experienced racism so racism don’t exist! I aint got time today!

    No word of support from the LGTBQ community. Silent again and it is not surprising.

  • We Can Do This

    I know that kind but I think Lebron isn’t ashamed of his blackness and will teach his kids to do the same.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Sick.

  • true french

    lolol. Boom!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I agree. You may be right, but they lay their heads under a roof somewhere. And once they either have to vandalize and damage their own homes or become homeless for their actions, they would learn their lesson. If the law was in effect, they wouldn’t have even bothered to mess with this man’s home because they would have been too worried about losing or damaging their own. They did it because they knew they could get away with it. If they had to come home every night for a year and look at their own house looking like a crack heads den, or being evicted, they would have just kept driving past that man’s house.
