LeBron James Scoffs at Paternity Lawsuit

8/31/2010 2:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James wants a court to be as dismissive as he is over a lawsuit filed by a man who claims to be his father.

LeBron James Lawsuit

TMZ broke the story ... Leicester Bryce Stovell filed a $4 million lawsuit against LeBron and Gloria James, the NBA star's mom, claiming fraud and defamation.

Now attorneys for LeBron and Gloria have asked a judge to dismiss the suit, labeling it "rank speculation."  According to the new legal docs obtained by TMZ, LeBron's lawyers scoffed at "... a man who claims that as a twenty-nine year old lawyer he got a 15-year old girl pregnant during a one-night stand and who never contributed a penny in child support would earn millions in commercial endorsements by crawling out of the wood-work after the child he never gave a thought to became an NBA star."

The new docs also note the results of a DNA test which show "0% probability of paternity."

What a dirt-bag. Funny how money will make some people try anything... except of course, earning it the old-fashioed way. What a jerk!

Sounds like bullsh*t but based on the response:

"... a man who claims that as a twenty-nine year old lawyer he got a 15-year old girl pregnant during a one-night stand and who never contributed a penny in child support would earn millions in commercial endorsements by crawling out of the wood-work after the child he never gave a thought to became an NBA star."

THAT SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE LEBRON'S DAD...NO LOYALTY, JUST SHOW ME THE MONEY.

Well, make the guy come up with back child support before his claim can be processed through the courts. He'd run!

Here's an idea..

Award him the exact sum he would have paid for 18 Years of child support, then award LeBron's mom the back child support and call it even.

I wonder if ESPN will carry any potential paternity hearing like they did "The Decision", hosted by Maury Povich of course. Yeah, anyone else not putting this past ESPN?

Uh huh -- and if LeBron were making his living as a data entry clerk or grocery store cashier this guy would have to find another "son" to rip off.

LOL, that'd be hilarious if he doesn't get a penny, but gets sent to jail for statutory rape.

If the paternity says he's not the father, why is it still an issue?

Does LeBron's legal team not know how to use punctuation in their press releases? Talk about run-on sentence!
