LeBron James' father probably isn't Leicester Stovell, as judge tosses lawsuit
LeBron James' father is not, it seems, a local lawyer named Leicester Stovell. The man had claimed he fathered James during a one night stand with the Miami Heat superstar's then–15-year-old mother. A DNA test proved otherwise, but Stovell insisted the test had been tampered with — an accusation that held no water with Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotell, of the U.S. District Court for D.C., who threw out the case. Stovell was seeking $4 million, about which Kollar-Kotell said, "Stovell believes that companies are willing to pay him for being the father of LeBron James. However, any such recovery would be wholly speculative.”
