Who is Gloria James?
LeBron James' mother, Gloria Marie James, is a well-known philanthropist, socialist, and advocate. Her mother Freda James, who was her major supporter while rearing LeBron James, died of a heart attack when she was 19 years old. She was left to care for her small child and two brothers while also struggling financially and having to relocate frequently.
Gloria was unable to get permanent work because she had not completed her school owing to her pregnancy. She made the most difficult decision of her life when she decided to leave her kid with his then-football coach, Frank Walker. He was the one who got LeBron interested in basketball.
Anthony McClelland, Gloria's casual companion who departed after learning she was pregnant, is said to be LeBron's father. Previously, he was convicted of arson and stealing. She has never been married despite rumors of her being in several romances.
In 2013, she was reported to be dating Miami-based rapper Da Real Lambo. Despite the fact that there is no proof that the two were actually married, the rapper referred to her as his wife many times. Once while they were living together and again in a video in which he threatened LeBron for interfering with his marriage. There were crazy allegations linking Gloria to her son's teammate Delonte West, who eventually married Caressa Suzzette, during the 2009-2010 season.
People often comment on how dedicated I am to my mum. True, but only because she has been committed to me for every minute of my existence. My mother taught me the true meaning of devotion. Through the LeBron James Family Foundation and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, I've attempted to follow in her footsteps by assisting children growing up in single-parent families.
The above-mentioned lines are James' own words for his loving mother. James' mother Gloria gave him a Hummer H2 for his birthday in 2003, which cost roughly $50,000. According to reports, she took out a loan to give him the pricey car.
