All eyes are on Team USA swimmer Lauren Perdue who will swim the first leg of the 4×200 women’s freestyle relay… including LeBron James. James asked Perdue to dinner when the men’s basketball team visited Olympic Village before the games.
Perdue confirmed the rumored meeting saying, “He did. He was kind of joking but he was basically like, ‘Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?’ And I said, ‘Um, I’m sorry, I have a curfew. So I turned that one down, yeah.”
The 2009 Beijing gold medalist is engaged to his high school sweetheart and baby mama Savannah Brinson. James joins teammate Kobe Bryant to be in the news for their game off the court. Earlier this week, pictures surfaced of Kobe Bryant shirtless with female fans at an Olympic after party in Barcelona. The pictures caused Bryant’s estranged wife Vanessa to almost cancel plans to attend the London Games.
