LeBron James' Daughter Zhuri, 4, Gets Her Hair Laid in New Photos
LeBron James’ youngest daughter, Zhuri James, is taking the internet by storm with her cuteness, so it’s only natural for the L.A Lakers star to get a bit overprotective. James recently took to Instagram to share a pair of pics of his gorgeous child, but he added a warning in the caption.
The dotting father recently took to Instagram to share a pair of too-adorable pics of Zhuri, and she looks so grown and confident that fans can’t believe how fast time is passing.
"This pretty girl right here; this is my rock.”
In the pics, the charming girl is wearing a red cardigan over a white t-shirt, ripped jeans, and a pair of silver sneakers. However, it wasn’t her clothes what caught attention but her hairstyle.
Usually, Zhuri rocks her curly hair in braids, buns or ponytails, but for these pics, she rocked a parted hairstyle with a lot of voluminosity, securing one side with floral pins while the other fell in soft waves over her little face.
The charming little girl posed with a big smile on her face and her hands on her waist, proving that she’s always camera ready.
James went ahead to give a little warning to Zhuri’s future pursuers on his caption:
“Loading up the clips right now as I type!! I dare you to try me when it comes to Daddy’s Lil Princess Z!! Promise you it won’t end well for you!. Ok now with that said she’s BEAUTIFUL!! Thank you @mrs_savannahrj #ZhuriNova.”
Despite the threat, fans didn’t hesitate to fill LeBron’s comment section with praises for his little princess.
“Idk I get this vibe from her like she'll have them handled before you even know it's a problem,” wrote one user.
Another added, “Beautiful Black Princess, looking like her Mama.”
And a third one joked,
“I feel ya pain bro. These babygirls we have grow up so fast. Call me to reenact this Bad Boys scene.”
It’s not the first time—and probably won’t be the last—that James gushes about his daughter online.
Last year, he took the stage to accept his Harlem Fashion Row 360 Award with Zhuri on tow and took the chance to describe how she inspires him to be a better person.

Man after being away from my family as a whole for 18 straight days I couldn’t wait to reunite today after practice and school for my kids. Nothing like hanging and banging around with my #JamesGang👑. #MySupportSystemIsTheOnlyReasonIAmWhoIAm❤️💪🏾 #QueenV #Bronny #BryceMaximus #PrincessZhuriNova
“This pretty girl right here; this is my rock,” said James. “I had two boys first, my oldest son, LeBron Jr., and my younger son, Bryce Maximus, and people always told me, if you ever have a girl she’ll change you.”
“Three years ago, this bright spot right here happened to our family. And not only did she change me, she’s made me a better person. A more dedicated person, a stronger person. I guess a more sensitive person that realized that I have so much more of a responsibility to women in general. So, thank you, Zhuri.”

Sunday Love. I waited to post these Today since it was on this day of the week that it all came together beautifully. Born out of thoughts of love and respect for the female influence on his life, @kingjames aka LeBron created an empowering movement for women — The Strongest. Celebrating their courage, dignity, loyalty and determination. Thanks to Essence for allowing me to contribute to an amazing expression of Love❣️Inspiration from #queenoftomorrow Zhuri James #zhurijames #beautifulblackgirls #courage #determination #loyalty thanks #essencemagazine #forwomenbywomen #lebron16 #blackgirlmagic @lelanifoster #📸 #Strongest #marcalittlejohn #stylist #kbainc #sundayloveday #loveyourself & #passiton
The little girl made her debut as a model as part of James’ #Strongest campaign for the release of his first shoe for women in collaboration with Nike. She joined her mother, Savannah James, her grandmother Gloria James, and many other powerful women like Serena Williams and Maya Moore.
“Being the son, husband, and father of strong African-American women, I felt like this was something that I wanted to do for them and for all the strong women out there who are succeeding despite what might be stacked against them,” James stated of the campaign.
