Many professional athletes may use their baller statuses to hop from beautiful woman to beautiful woman, but LeBron James has never really been interested in that perk of fame. In fact, he’s been dating the same lady since he was sixteen, and this weekend, he decided to make the commitment official by exchanging I dos with Savannah Brinson.
According to TMZ, the ceremony took place at the Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego on Saturday evening. The full guest list hasn’t been published, but we know James’ teammates Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, along with their significant others, were in attendance, as well as mega-popular couple Beyonce and Jay-Z who were sweet enough to provide some entertainment at the ceremony. They two sang “Crazy In Love” and by all accounts, it went over very well with the guests and the loving couple of honor.
Much has been made about James’ ill-advised Decision, in which he went on national television and basically tore the heart out of every last Cleveland resident by announcing he’d “take his talents to South Beach”, but in all honesty, he’s grown up a whole lot since then. He’s become a true leader. He’s won two NBA Championships, and he’s spent large segments of his time giving back to sick children and needy families. This marriage adds to that maturity, and no doubt felt long overdue for everyone involved.
It takes a lot of hard work, intelligence and determination to become the most famous athlete in the world, and it takes many of those same qualities to carry on a meaningful and long-lasting relationship with said athlete. Together, LeBron and Savannah have two children. It’s unclear where life might take them moving forward, but hopefully, everything they accomplish will be done as a loving team.
Pop Blend’s sincerest congratulations go out to LeBron and Savannah during this exciting time. Here’s to hoping their future contains decades and decades of happiness.
