West dating lebron james mother
as in, these engagement photos were released last week. So if these rumors are true, not only will Bron be playing just as sh*tty tonight as he did Tuesday, since it’s all over the everything and we’re sure he’s heard the rumors by now.
But it would mean the break up of two seemingly really happy couples.
They openly mock photos where he displays Le Bron’s championship ring and models it for the camera (Deadspin helpfully points out that he “has to use two fingers” because the ring is too big on him).
I wrote about Lebron, family honor and yo mama stigma frameworks back in July 2010, when Lebron had recently announced that he would be leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for the Miami Heat, after much hype, speculation, and that infamous hour-long ESPN special.
In my piece, I wrote that the critical backlash against Lebron shouldn’t involve slut-shaming of his mother based on rumors that she slept with Delonte West, another player on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The rumors had inspired such jabs as the shirt pictured (“You can head south but your mom is riding west”) as well as countless sites, articles, and street corner conversations.
Check out photos of Gloria James and her new beau below.
Lebron James’ mother is dating a rapper who is only three years older than him, and who likes to publicly express admiration for the two-time NBA champion.
It seems to me like we should all be so lucky as to have our parents find loving relationships at any age.When we do things that enable members of society to feel entitled to control other people’s bodies, often women’s, we all get hurt.We get hurt when someone’s name is gleefully dragged around in the mud to shame, embarrass, and dishonor their family, and a young person silently observes and thinks, “that could be me.” We get hurt when we’re told that our relationship status is something that can be used as a weapon against those we love.We’re pretty sure someone directly involved will have addressed it by this time tomorrow. I smell a big old stink egg of sexism and ageism emanating directly from this post over on Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard blog. Because the writer, Samer Kalaf, apparently found the fact that Le Bron James' mother, Gloria James, is reportedly dating a younger man to be significantly shocking enough to warrant a full blog post.
