LeBron James ‘mother, Gloria was arrested this morning after having a confrontation with a valet at a Miami’s Fontainebleau Hotel over her keys. Allegedly Gloria has a temper and will tell you off…
According to People,
LeBron James’s mother, Gloria, was arrested early Thursday after an alleged altercation at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach.
“There was an incident involving Mrs. Gloria James and an employee of our valet parking provider while she was exiting the hotel early Thursday morning,” Mabel de Beunza, a spokesperson for Fontainebleau Miami Beach, said in a statement. (Lebron, meanwhile, had a game)
According to a source on the scene, Gloria and some girlfriends came to party at club LIV at the Fontainebleau, where she was being “sweet as pie” during the the night out. When it came time to leave around 5 a.m., a security guard escorted her to the valet area to collect her car. The escort was not because she was behaving badly, the source says, but because it’s a Fontainebleau policy to provide their VIP guests with an escort.
“When Gloria went to get in her car, she said she couldn’t find her keys which she was told were in the car,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She got angry quickly and swung her bag at the valet person who brought the car.”
But her aim was off, and Gloria missed the valet with her bag, the source says, so she slapped his face a minute later. That’s when, the source says, the police were called, and Gloria was taken into custody early Thursday morning.
She will likely face a misdemeanor assault charge, police tell the Miami Herald.
