4/9/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources close to Rockfeller Sorel tell us ... R.S. has taken an extended leave of absence from his gig ... and has been telling people he's "very depressed" ever since Gloria James clocked him in the face early Thursday morning.

As we previously reported, James was arrested over the incident ... and according to cops, she was a real pain in the ass with police.

We're told Rockfeller will be meeting with his lawyer on Monday to discuss his legal options ... which means he's probably gonna drop a GARGANTUAN lawsuit.

at least the valet was slapped by a backhand. LB's mom was slapped with an ugly stick.

Does this guy think he's going to get a lot of money out of this? If so, he's mistaken. It's LeBron who's making millions NOT his mother.

Please...this guy is looking to make a buck. 10 minutes after getting smacked he called his lawyer? Funny thing...she probably doesn't have a dime to her name..and Lebron isn't responsible for paying this guy if he would win a suit...so this valet is just paying his lawyer for nothing.

florida is famous for frivious lawsuits. How many times is a man sued for slapping the crap out of his wife or kids. this is a case of greed. it is an open and shut case. I was sued a few years ago by someone with the same mentality. It is not funny and it does not feel good! this man wanted over $100,000 from me. he called the police the officer called the ambulance, but she did not file a report and my insurance company disputed the claim. when he left the emergency room his bill was less than $200 and he lost a perfectly good pair of work pants and his job in the process. It is fine when you are making assumptions, but when you are being sued friviously by someone who sees dollar signs when they look at you. He still has to show proof that he has suffered: which translates into bills from doctor visits. do you really think he is spending money he has not gotten yet on Doctors' visits???? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Leave James' mother alone...HATERS!!! It doesn't matter how she looks, she wakes up to no money worries EVERYDAY...there are a lot of UGLY rich people and just because you don't like the way she looks, there may be someone who does not like the way you look. stop being so judgemental. you worried about what she look like, how much money she got, is she worried about you? NO, NO, NO

He thinks he is going to get money because of who the son is. We all know he is not that loyal to anyone, why would this guy think that LJ would even put up any money. When LJ spoke to the press it sounds like this is not the first time his Mom has acted out when drunk/high. Why would he be held responsible. This guy just is not that smart. He should just put his foot out next time some rich person gets into their car. This is so dumb, that what every lawyer takes this case should be sued for being stupid.
