LeBron's Alleged Father Wants DNA and Gift Money

9/23/2010 4:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James' alleged biological daddy claims his original DNA test was bogus -- so now he wants a new test to prove paternity ... plus a chunk o' change for what he calls "loss of gifts."

55-year-old Leicester Bryce Stovell filed new papers in his paternity case against LeBron and his mother Gloria -- claiming the basketball superstar's recent motion to dismiss the case is based on a "fraudulent" DNA test from 2007 ... and should be tossed out.

As we first reported, Stovell is seeking $4 million from LeBron and his mother -- claiming fraud, defamation and misrepresentation.

In the new docs, Stovell alleges Gloria falsified the 2007 test -- which showed a "0% probability of paternity" -- and he wants a second, more carefully supervised test.

And then there's this: Stovell wants $$$ because he lost "gifts of money" that he would have received from LeBron had the test proven paternity.

A man can dream ...

I think if he is the father they should go after him for back child support and being a dead beat! Who the heck has ever heard of a dead beat getting money from a kid he hasn't supported?!

If anybody would owe anyone money it would be STOVELL owing LeBron's mother for child support. Since when can someone sue a child who is famous for gifts? Pleeeez.

You are a complete and total loser. Trying to get money off a son you had nothing to do with until he came into money. You should have to pay his mother all the child support she should have collected over the years and not get one red cent from LeBron. Go crawl away you poor excuse for a human.

Wow - he must be Oksana's father not LeBrons - Greed - I would be ashamed to say "loss of gifts". He and Michael Jackson and Lindsay Lohan's father - all cut from the same cloth.

jigs never cease to amaze me with their ridiculous nonsense! These monkeys need to be sent back to Africa. Worse thing our fore fathers could have done was to bring them to this country!

WTF is wrong with you? People like YOU are why this country is in such bad shape. Your mother should have swallowed.

As far as this "father" goes, let him incur all court and DNA costs. If he is the father, make him pay back child support and half of the cost of LeBron's college costs. Suing for lost "gifts". It's unique...pathetic, but unique.
