LeBron James

Alleged Dad Has NO GAME

Judge Dismisses Lawsuit

9/20/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0919_lebron_james_dad_exLeBron James' alleged father is full of it -- legally speaking -- which is why a judge just shot down the man's lawsuit against 'Bron ... according to new court documents.

TMZ broke the story ... Leicester Bryce Stovell sued LBJ and his mother Gloria last year ... claiming they defamed him, blocked him from making money -- and tampered with paternity test results that showed he was NOT LeBron's father.

Now, a Washington, DC judge has dismissed all 8 claims in Stovell's lawsuit. In the docs, the court said Stovell had insufficient facts to support his claims, and -- among other things, "had not identified any damages."

As for Stovell's belief he could have earned big money -- the court said, "Apparently Stovell believes that companies are willing to pay him for being the father of LeBron James." Not shockingly ... the court once again said Stovell has no proof to back that claim.

Stovell -- a lawyer who claims he knocked up Gloria after a one-night stand -- tells TMZ he still thinks there is "a likelihood" he's LeBron's biological pop ... and he wants to retake a DNA test.

He also says he might appeal the dismissal.

In the words of the late great Michael Jackson. "This is serious Jelly!" This is about family... so let's shown the brother some respect..."in my opinion... he does favor Lebron. So...Lebron why not give him the DNA test and get it over with. So for you haters out there... it's just a matter of time before Lebron joins - up with his homeboy Kobe... and plays for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Long live the King.

What kind of lawyer is he? Why make it about money? He didn't even raise the boy. He doesn't deserve money. All he needed to do was sue for a court ordered DNA test and that would solve all the other problems he claims LeBron and his mom caused him.

I'm glad to see that the Washington court has some sense. This guy is outragous. Heck, I'm a Cavs fan and even I'm glad to see that James doesnt have to pay this disgusting excuse for a human being.

There have been so many dudes running up in Lebron's mom that it would take Jack Cousteau to find Lebron's real father. Too bad Jack Cousteau has been dead for 10 years so now we'll never find Lebron's daddy.
