LeBron James & Savannah Brinson Split?
Are LeBron James and fiancee Savannah Brinson on the outs? The baller’s other half has not been seen with him in weeks. She was a no-show at the White House (who misses that?) when the Heat and their significant others visited President Barack Obama and was AWOL at last weekend’s NBA All Star game.
According to Gossip Extra who has been following the couple, it seems like there really is trouble in paradise:
What’s more, I’m told by a source that the couple briefly planned to get hitched sometime last summer, seven or eight months after the New Year’s eve party when James asked Brinson to marry him!
Brinson, the mother of James’ sons LeBron Jr., 8, and Bryce, 5, even went to a New York fashion show to shop for a wedding gown, according to photos of her at an Ines di Santo fashion show in April.
“Ms. Brinson visited a bridal market in New York,” said a manager at Ever After Miami, a bridal store in Coconut Grove that carries the fancy bridal line. The woman declined to give her name. “But any other information about Ms. Brinson would be confidential.”
James proposed at his 27th birthday party at the Shelborne South Beach. A pear-shaped diamond was involved, and photos of the bauble were tweeted to the world.
James’ summer, however, got busy with NBA championship celebrations and the Olympics.
I’m told several news organizations were angling for exclusive access to the ceremony but talks broke down abruptly with no explanations sometime in late summer.
No one in James’ tight-knit camp’s talking, including one of LeBron’s lawyers reached by Gossip Extra.
And last weekend, Savannah was “roughing” it on Catalina Island off Los Angeles with girlfriends while Lebron was ballin’ at the All-Star Weekend game.
There just may be some truth to this rumor.
