Gloria James, LeBron's Mom, Settles Lawsuit With Fontainebleau Valet
According to Gossip Extra, James will pay Sorel an undisclosed some, but James' lawyers are still hoping to wring a damage control statement out of Sorel. The settlement comes just days before the civil case was set to go to trial on January 7.
The Haitian-born Sorel filed the suit in 2011 shortly after the incident, and witnesses claimed that James yelled, "Take a boat and go back to your country."
James also faced criminal charges. She had battery charges dropped, and struck a plea deal on charges of disorderly intoxication. She was forced to donate $1,000 to a Haitian charity, complete 20 hours of community service and stay away from Sorel.
This should end the legal mess caused by the incident (which, yes, was caught on video).
