NBA megastar LeBron James just can’t stop slamming Trump, and this time, it may have cost him his marriage.
The King’s latest tweet appears to have been the last straw for his wife, Savannah. Despite LeBron deleting the tweet quickly due to rampant fan backlash, Savannah – a Trump supporter – saw it and contacted a lawyer to initiate divorce proceedings.
This appears to be an obvious indication that King James plans to protest the President once the NBA season begins, something sources close to the family say his wife “wants nothing to do with” as it’s “a national embarrassment.”
No word yet on any backlash from the NBA, which yesterday announced that it expects players to stand for the anthem or face punishment, but surely the loss of his marriage will change the King’s tune toward President Trump. Will he kneel? Will he recant on calling the President a “bum?” Only time will tell.
For now, sources say Savannah may file for full custody of the couple’s three children – LeBron Jr., Bryce Maximus and Zhuri – but she hasn’t spoken out publicly about the situation. Yet.
