LeBron on Mom's Arrest -- It's A 'Sensitive Subject'

4/7/2011 5:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James broke his silence after the Miami Heat's practice today -- calling his mother's arrest early this morning "a sensitive subject" ... and insisting it's "being taken care of."

LeBron told reporters, “You have to move forward ... It is my life and there’s certain things you have to deal with. You try not to let it be a distraction. I have a job to do, still.”

He continued, “It’s very sensitive because it’s your mother. Of course to have an incident, it’s very sensitive. But the people around me are helping me."

As we previously reported, LeBron's mom was arrested this morning for allegedly assaulting a parking valet outside a Miami hotel. She was processed and released.

I'm sure it is a sensitive subject. He's probably mad as hell but trying to deal with it in a positive way because it's his mother.

@Jodi: "Whatever, he needs to either send his mom to rehab or enroll her in anger management classes and since this is a repeat performance she definitely has issues that need to be dealt with."

Anger management classes ain't going to help her if she keeps getting behind the wheel of her car while drunk. She needs rehab stat and then the fear of the Lord or the Law put into her.

This woman has no class and has to be a alcoholic. What makes her think she is better then everyone else. Her son needs to send her to rehab and anger management. She acts like other side of the tracks trailer trash. She should be ashamed of her self.

Hopefully it means he has shipped Mom off to rehab. That is embarrassing to have Mom talking to a man working an honest job and the incident is splattered all over the news and internet. Alcohol has control over her and she has no control over alcohol.

Take a good look at Momma's face so you'll "know who she is" if you accidentally cross her path.

Was that one of the sign-on bonuses he got when he signed with the heat????

OMG Gloria strikes again. But what can you expect from a "recovering crackhead". She is a racist. I HAVE WATCHED LEBRON SINCE HE WAS A FRESHMAN AT ST. VINCENT-ST.MARY HIGH SCHOOL IN AKRON. He was a spoiled brat as a freshman and having to watch his mother implode here in Akron Ohio was like watching a bad episode of cops. She kicked out a police cruisers window while drunk in the largest drug spot in Akron at 2 in the morning.What waas she doing there????? My experience living and shopping in the same stores as her she is a hot mess and needs a year or two in rehab. She is rude, pushy and classless. I guess money cant buy you class. What she needs is a sober minder to control her. I dont care if Lebron is embarassed he deserves it for not taking care of his mothers problems. PLEASE keep her in South Beach where her talents are better taken care of. We have no need for either of them back.

LeBaby is "taking care of it" and "people are helping" him. Wow, isn't that nice? I wish I had that kind of power in the legal system -- oh, I forgot, I'm not driving dui or hitting valets and my son isn't a famous basketball player! The only justice would be a "real" elbow injury during the playoffs!
