The attorney for the valet who is suing LeBron James' mom tells TMZ ... during the confrontation, Gloria James allegedly told the valet, "You don't know who I am, you f**king n**ger. Tomorrow, you won't have a job"
Angela L. Cohn, the attorney for valet Rockfeller Sorel, tells us, Gloria James spewed the hateful remark just as the confrontation became physical.
Gloria was arrested after the incident, and TMZ just broke the story that the valet is suing her for assault and battery.
As for our earlier story showing video of the confrontation, Cohn says any intimation that the valet was the aggressor is untrue.
Cohn says the video shows Gloria was clearly the aggressor by leaning into Sorel as she launched into her alleged racial attack.
