LeBron James and his wife Savannah have unleashed after a report allegedly linked their son, Bronny, to 46-year-old celebrity Larsa Pippen.
James, fresh off his victory against the Timberwolves, took to Instagram after his wife became enraged at a report from Black Sports Online.

The report called attention to Bronny James, 16, liking one of Larsa’s, a TV celebrity and former wife of Scottie Pippen, Instagram posts.
The New York Post also claimed the 16-year-old had slid into Pippen’s DMs.
The initial report has since been been edited, or removed, according to publication.
But this didn’t stop Savannah unleashing on her Instagram story and slapping down the report.
“With everything going on in the world right now, this is the s**t y’all talking about,” she wrote.
“At the end of the day y’all are talking about a minor. I don’t care what type of ‘celebrity’ y’all think he is, he’s a child and the bulls**t needs to stop. Y’all got the right one.”
This prompted LeBron to repost her story and add to the furore.
“Uh-oh y’all f***ed with the wrong one now! Good luck. It won’t be cute!” he added.
Bronny James and Pippen respond
Pippen has since hit back at the report claiming it was ‘disgusting’.
Some of these stories are so disgusting the fact that my sons friends can’t like my pics without some ppl writing some weirdo shit is crazy.
