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 vulgar man. He should go to jail for extortion. I don't care if you do it behind closed doors or try to use the courts that is all he is doing is trying to extort. At what point would an absentee father deserve earnings from a son anyway? Absolute waste of space and oxygen. He should be penalized and fined for pain and suffering and all court and lawyers fees for a frivilous lawsuit.

How many 15 years old has this man had sex with, being he said he was 29 years old at the time. Perhaps he should be on some sex offender's list.

If it is positive, he needs to be arrested. That was statutory rape no matter how long ago it happened. Sick of this child manipulation and child molestation. Sicko

you know it    

if he's claiming to have a one night stand with a 15 yr old then they should file rape charges against him. he doesn't got a cent coming to him. he's not the one who raised him. tell your story walkin'!

Uh... Did I miss LeBron's mother's denial of baby-daddy-wanna-be's allegations of them going bump in the night?
Does she even know who her son's father is?
Glad something good (LeBron) came out of whatever her track record is.

I think the paternity test is false. But the sperm donor shouldn't get anything.

He is only here for the money.

Pathetic. What if he was indeed the father, could they put him in jail for statutory r.a.p.e? If the statue of limit did'nt run out.
