LeBron's Mom Suit -- Valet's Lost 'Enjoyment of Life'

4/14/2011 2:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James' mother Gloria James caused the valet she allegedly slapped last week to lose his "capacity for enjoyment of life" -- and now he wants $15,000 minimum ... according to his lawsuit.


TMZ obtained a copy of the lawsuit Rockfeller Sorel filed Tuesday in Miami-Dade County.  In the suit, he accuses Gloria of assault and battery ... during the incident at the Fountainbleu Hotel.

Sorel then breaks down a laundry list of "damages" he claims to have suffered -- such as pain, emotional distress, humiliation, mental anguish, and loss of capacity for enjoyment of life.

On top of all that Sorel says he needs cash for medical care and lost earnings.

First off, Gloria is a Human Sow! LeBron's people pretty much kept her in the backround while he displayed his talents in Cleveland. There was only one incident where she was picked up in a well known drug area of Akron in the wee hours of the morning drunk and looking for some crack. She was arrested but got off with just a slap on the wrists.

Everyone knew something like this would happen. It was only a matter of time. Consider what she does that doesn't hit the papers. You can take the girl out of the Ghetto but, you can't take the Ghetto out of the girl!

It's a shame because LeBron has lead a clean upstanding life to this point. (That we are told). How he turned out not addicted and not in jail with his upbringing is amazing. He does strive to be the best even with Gloria constantly dragging him down. It is a fact: SHE WAS screwing Delonte last year and that may have been one of the reasons, if not the main one, why he left Cleveland. The Cavs should have gotten rid of him for 2 tickets to Cedar Point when they found out! It will be 47 years December 27th since any major Cleveland Sports team has won a Championship. The way it looks now with the Cavs, Indians, and Browns, it could be another 47 years. LeBron was our only hope.

Back to Gloria: She is nothing but trash and an embarrassment to her son and any organization he is associated with! It's a shame!

I really hope the judge just throws his case out......he has taken it too far now. As for the idiots that are cheering him on.....I pity you, I hope you aren't all American, cause people around the world already have a pretty bad view of Americans and this just heightens that.

You people are saying good for him just to teach her a lesson.. What lesson does that teach her? She will just go drink a 40 while LeBron writes a check.. All this is teaching anyone is that you can make retarded waste of time lawsuits and score a payday from it.
