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."

Luke... I am your father.

People this IS LeBron's dad and if he appears self serving and money grubbing then all I can say is the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

Look like LeBron, act like LeBron...

What, another freak? God, who wants a father that he never knew, or supported him? Old dude needs to crawl back in the bushes. These a-hole need to leave the stars alone. No wonder no one wants much to trust the public.

Regardless of the statuate of limitations for rape in that state, it's a sad state of affairs when a man gladly and publicly admits to statutory rape and then claim to be the injured party.

I definitely don't think this guy should benefit from being an absentee dad/statuatory rapist, but he DOES look a helluva lot like LeBron. He very well be the bio dad.

Awww to bad, so sad. Let's see who he'll pick next, there's just so many to chose from. Perhaps he'll try the NFL next or he may have a bit of latino in him then he can move on over to MLB.
