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."

0921_lebron_james_ex_Getty_tmz
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 ...

My question is did he not think when this child was born that he was the father? When the child and the mother was poor and on the receiving end, why wasn't he so agressive about being the father? Why didn't he go to the court house?

Everyone wants a free, no effort payday. How pathetic and desperate. If you want a bunch of money, why don't you do a bunch of work for it, rather than trying to gravytrain off of someone else's success?

Lebron--love him or hate him, is the reigning two time NBA MVP. He's earned his millions. This other guy......has done......what?

"Gift money". Whatever.

A good judge will toss his suit as frivolous, his time to seek to prove paternity ended when Lebron turned 18 and became an adult. If they do the test and it proves positive, yes sue him for past child support. This guy is perfect CEO material in today's market: not too smart, greedy and self centered, an unabashed liar (to be proven). Lebron isn't anymore greedy than any other superstar, in fact to make the Miami move he accepted a smaller offer than Cleveland's to stay by a couple million per year. He just wanted to be associated with a championship team. Unfortunately society has taught kids winning is the only thing by letting the misquote of Lombardi stand. Lombardi was pissed as hell the "quote" was attributed to him, rejecting the sentiment that conflicted with his deeply set work ethic and morals.

Like father, like son. And let's not forget momma, who was a crack addict, had LBJ placed in foster care for elven years because she could not care for him and allegedly was having sex last year with LBJ's sidekick Delonte West-himself on suspension for carrying tWO handguns, a shotgun and a major size knife in his three wheeler and running from the cops in WaSHINGTON, DC.

Yeah-these people are just like the folks next door, all right.

You are an absolute joke! Why don't you get off the couch, turn off nascar, and study for your GED. If you can manage, try and squeeze in a hair cut for your awesome mullet. Don't even try and justify your comment just try and correct how you think, and move forward in a positive light.
