"TMZ has obtained video of the incident, which shows Gloria striking Sorel, but only after he approaches and appears to touch her." I'm not sure about this. Are we watching the same video? I wonder, how can someone "approach" another person, if that person is already inches from your face?

He should sue her. Who the hell does she think she is? She's entitled to slap around anyone cuz her son is Lebron? She needs a slap!

Looks like the jerk was the aggressive one; Mom should sue him. He should be fired. SHE ended up on the ground--why wasn't HE arrested?

looks like he put his hand on her first...you should never touch a person who appears to be under the influence as they may see it as an attack and swing back it's common sense. So this lawsuit should be thrown out. This man was very agrressive going after her so if nobody was around he would have hurt her. I am not saying she had any right to swing at him but she probably thought when he touched her that he was crossing the line you just don't touch somebody you do not know.

You guys assume a lot from an unclear video. I guess as long as you say "appears" and "allegedly", then it's okay. TMZ sucks.
