Savannah Brinson & LeBron James

LeBron James has 4 NBA championship rings, and his biggest fan has been by his side every step of the way! Get to know his wife, Savannah Brinson

Even someone who’s never seen or touched a basketball in their lifetime knows who LeBron James is. Despite being arguably the best basketball player of all-time (Michael Jordan fans, don’t come for us!), the Los Angeles Lakers superstar has his hands in a number of different things, including television shows, movies, fashion and more. Throughout his success, both on and off the court, there’s been one constant in LeBron’s life — his wife Savannah Brinson. She’s been there through it all… when LeBron was selected No. 1 overall in the 2003 NBA draft; his four NBA championships; 17 All-Star selections; his first shoe deal with Nike and much more. Get to know Savannah with these five facts:

1. LeBron & Savannah are high-school sweethearts.

They met when they were kids, growing up in Akron, Ohio, and started dating at just 16-years-old. As for their first date? — The two enjoyed a meal at Outback Steakhouse, Savannah recalled in an interview with Harpers Bazaar. After their first date, she forgot her leftovers in his car, and LeBron later returned them to her. “I think he just wanted another excuse to come and see me,” she said. They went on to attend prom together in 2004, and Savannah shared an epic throwback to Instagram.

LeBron proposed to Savannah on New Year’s Eve in 2011, at a party that doubled as his 27th birthday bash in South Beach, Miami — where he was living at the time while playing for the Heat. LBJ and Savannah for a whopping twelve years before they tied the knot on September 14, 2013. The lavish nuptials featured a performance of “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce and Jay-Z, according to Deadspin, along with a star-studded guest list, which included LBJ’s best friend Dwyane Wade and more.

2. She’s the mother of LeBron’s three children. 

LeBron Jr. (Bronny) was born on October 6, 2004, followed by the couple’s second son, Bryce Maximus, who Savannah gave birth to on June 14, 2007. They welcomed both boys before they married. LeBron and Savannah’s third — their first daughter — came after the wedding. Zhuri was born on October 22, 2014.

Savannah became pregnant with the couple’s first child, Bronny, during their senior year of high school. “I was very scared,” she told Harpers Bazaar in the aforementioned interview. “I was bawling. But he said, ‘It’s not going to slow me down, and it’s not going to slow you down. We’re going to keep doing what we have to do.’”

3. Savannah is an entrepreneur & passionate philanthropist. 

In December of 2013, Savannah opened “The Juice Spot,” and while it was constantly busy, she closed its doors in January 2016, due to her busy traveling schedule. She previously helped design Home Court by LeBron James, a line for American Signature.

As far as her philanthropy, Savannah is the founder of the “I PROMise Makeover” event, which provides prom dresses to underprivileged girls, I can’t imagine being in their situation and not have somebody help,” Savannah told USA Today during her third year of the program. “I really care. It’s really in my soul to help people, and this is the first baby to come from it,” she said, noting, “There comes a time when you have to give back.” The LeBron James Family Foundation has also donated $41 million of scholarship money to University of Akron students.

4. Savannah is the inspiration for a character in ‘Space Jam 2’

While Savannah does not appear alongside her husband in Space Jam: A New Legacy, she is the inspiration for one of the sequel film’s characters. Actress Sonequa Martin-Greece plays Kamiyah James, a fictionalized version of Savannah in the 2021 film. Before the movie premiered, Sonequa spoke to Den of Greek about how she paid tribute to Savannah and her marriage to LeBron in her role.

“I just appreciate that you see very clearly that these two have a very beautiful partnership,” the actresss said. “They co-parent in their family really beautifully and successfully. I love that the success of the family couldn’t happen without Kamiyah.This family dynamic and the family itself being the root of the story is something new to this iteration. I just loved it. I was so moved by it and I really do believe that it’s paying homage to the real James family and Savannah, Queen James herself.” Savannah also supported LeBron at the red carpet premiere of Space Jam 2 on July 12, 2021 in Los Angeles. The couple was also joined by daughter Zhuri at the star-studded event.

5. Savannah is the ‘boss’ of the James household

LeBron himself declared his wife as the leader of the household in a joint interview the couple did with Vogue in 2017. “I’m gone a lot, so she is the boss of the household; she’s the rule-setter,” he said, explaining, “It’s hard for me to go on the road for two and half weeks and then come home and tell my kids, ‘Look, this is how it should be done’ when she’s been home every day.”

PHOTO: Mary Cosby’s Church Sign Removed, Did RHOSLC Star Close Church After Cult Rumors?

PHOTO: Mary Cosby's Church Sign Removed, Did RHOSLC Star Close the Establishment for Good After Being Accused of Running a Cult?

Has Mary Cosby‘s church shut its doors for good?

After facing a slew of rumors suggesting she was running a cult amid the second season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, whose reunion she skipped, a recently-surfaced photo taken outside of Mary’s church has confirmed that her signage has been removed.

In a post shared by Bravo Obsessed on Twitter, which featured a screenshot of a DM between The Reality B-tch 2.0 and an anonymous Instagram user, the user sent an image of the bare bones where the church’s sign was once displayed.

RHOSLC Mary Cosby Church Sign Removed

While there could be a logical explanation for the sign being removed, such as a new sign being ordered, Google has listed the church, Faith Temple Church, as “temporarily closed,” which has raised even more questions.

Mary Cosby's Faith Temple Church Temporarily Closed

In September 2021, a couple of former members of Mary’s church came forward with shocking allegations against the establishment with one man, who attended the church for over two decades, describing it as “cultish.”

“It’s the mental manipulation to try to get people to believe that she has the power to either take them to heaven or condemn them to hell,” he explained.

Meanwhile, a woman took aim at Mary.

“She’s got these people terrified. That woman is the most evil thing that ever walked this Earth,” she shared. “You have no idea, all those smiles and sh*t—that is not real.”

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight last January, Mary addressed rumors claiming her church was actually a cult.

“They’ve been saying that since my grandmother started at the church,” she stated. “There’s no cult. My church members, they know those are false allegations. Those are ridiculous. Clearly, I’m not gonna get on national television, be a Housewife and be in a cult. Like, come on. I believe in my church.”

Amid the latest season of RHOSLC, Lisa Barlow‘s friend, the late Cameron, made waves when he revealed he had mortgaged his home in an effort to make a $300,000 donation to Mary’s church before admitting to having ill feelings towards the organization. However, when asked about Cameron’s ultimate departure from her church, Mary said that people often leave her church if they don’t want to listen to the rules or do the right thing.

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season two airs Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.

LeBron James’ Wife Savannah Stuns in Little Black Dress & Stilettos Before Night Out: See Video

LeBron James, Savannah James

All-star outfit! Savannah James wowed while showing off her feathery black frock in a sassy Instagram.

LeBron James, 37, may be the man on the court, but his wife Savannah, 35, proved she was a fashion MVP as she flaunted a fabulous, black, feathered look on her Instagram Dec. 16. The basketball wife looked like a 10 as she strutted around her gorgeous, marble-floored hallway wearing a plunging black suit-dress which put her cleavage front and center. Amping up the elegance, her dress had ostrich feather trim on the sleeves and across the hem.

As she stepped and turned, Savannah flipped her gorgeous red locks over and smiled. Not missing an opportunity for more glamour, the NBA star’s wife added a diamond chain around her neck while tying everything together with strappy, black stiletto heels. Quoting an old Lil Wayne lyric in her caption, she wrote, “Real G’s move in silence like lasagna” before adding, “That’s all I could think of for a caption” with a shrugging emoji.

While it wasn’t clear where Savannah was headed, she was clearly dressed to impress. The entrepreneur wife of LeBron has been making a habit of showing off her fabulous outfits on Instagram. Ahead of the New Year, she stunned in a formfitting brown velvet dress with a daring backless cut while posing in front of a stack of giant crowns and smiling. “Festive tings,” Savannah captioned the post. And before that, she put on a dazzling display in a bejeweled Gucci gown for the premiere of House Of Gucci.

Savannah and LeBron are high school sweethearts, who wed in 2013. The couple has three kids: sons Bronny, 17, and Bryce, 14, and daughter Zhuri, 7. Savannah and LeBron recently talked about their eldest son Bronny’s NBA ambitions in the IMDb TV docuseries, Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers. While dad said he’d love to be “on the court” with his son, mom had a more measured response. She said she wants Bronny, “To be happy and to find happiness in whatever it is he does. I just want him to be happy.”

Good friends are hard to come by. Rap producer Ye (left) is fortunate to have loyal friends who stand by him during troubling times.

Ye, formerly Kanye West, donned a black ski mask and met up with his pals, Fivio Foreign (2nd from left) and Pu$ha T (right) for lunch after taking a break from recording in Los Angeles.

He was also spotted with Von Dutch designer Tracey Mills (right).

Ye thanked rapper Travis Scott for sending him the address to his daughter Chicago West‘s 4th birthday party. “I just gotta shout out to Travis Scott for sending me the address and the time,” he said in a video on Saturday.

The 44-year-old rapper and fashion mogul was upset that estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, didn’t invite him to his youngest daughter’s birthday party.

“Yo, I’m so happy right now,” Ye says in the Instagram video.

“I just came from Chi’s party and I just gotta shout out to Travis Scott for sending me the address and the time, and making sure that I was able to spend that birthday memory with my daughter to be there with the rest of the family.”

Ye was annoyed that Kim barred him from her Calabasas home when he tried to visit his children last week.

Kim previously denied blocking her estranged husband from visiting her home or attending their daughter’s birthday bash. In leaked video from the event, Ye is seen keeping a comfortable distance from Kim, while laughing it up with friends.

A source told Page Six that Kim was “saddened” by Ye’s public statements, after she asked the musician not to show up “unannounced” to their home.

Kim may have been worried for boyfriend Pete Davidson‘s safety after Ye promised to attack him in his new track, titled “Eazy,” which dropped Friday.

In other Ye news, the LAPD would like to speak to the father of four about an alleged assault that took place last week after a fan asked the rapper for an autograph.
