LeBron James and his wife, Savannah James, attended the premiere of Netflix's Hustle at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles. The power couple exuded love and elegance on the red carpet!


LeBron looked dapper in his high-waisted, tailored black trousers and tucked-in black shirt. He finished off his ensemble with a fitting brown suede jacket, white sneakers, jeweled accessories, and sunglasses.

The NBA superstar's wife looked just as stylish. Savannah wore an incredibly low-cut brown leather corset with high-waisted loose pleated plaid trousers. She completed her look with a pair of peep-toe heels.

The fashionable pair have been together for two decades. The couple's love journey began in high school in 2002 when LeBron and Savannah first met.

LeBron played basketball and football at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, in his hometown in Akron, Ohio, while Savannah was a cheerleader and a football player from a rival school.


Savannah was aware that something was developing between her and LeBron at the moment. The pair had their first date at Outback Steakhouse.

Savannah and LeBron have been inseparable since. In 2011, LeBron proposed to his longtime girlfriend during a star-studded New Year's Eve celebration in France, and the couple tied the knot in 2013.



LeBron's wife is a star in her own right. While taking care of her three children, Savannah has engaged in philanthropy, dedicating time to helping "encourage and empower girls and young women."

The passionate philanthropist is also a businesswoman. In December 2013, Savannah opened "The Juice Spot"; however, she closed the business down in January 2016 due to her hectic travel schedule.


While Savannah did not appear in LeBron's 2021 film, "Space Jam: A New Legacy," she was the main inspiration for one of the sequel film's characters, according to actress Sonequa Martin-Green.

Sonequa portrayed Savannah's fictionalized character, Kamiyah James, in the movie. The actress said her character was a tribute to Savannah and her marriage to the basketball star.


Inspired, Sonequa remarked that the longtime couple has a beautiful relationship, and their love is evident in how successfully they have raised their family.

LeBron himself credits his wife's efforts in keeping their family together. The Los Angeles Laker star described Savannah as the "boss" and the household leader.

Savannah and the 37-year-old star athlete share three children: sons Bronny, 17, Bryce Maximus, 14, and daughter Zhuri, 7. During LeBron's rookie season, the couple learned that Savannah was pregnant.

On October 6, 2004, Savannah welcomed LeBron James, Jr., also known as Bronny. Bryce Maximus came three years later, in 2007, while their daughter Zhuri was born in 2014.


LeBron is completely in love with his youngest child. He described Zhuri as the "greatest thing" that happened in his life, adding that his daughter's smile makes him happy.

The proud dad also spoke highly of his older son, Bronny, who follows in his footsteps in basketball. LeBron said Bronny is more into video games than anything else, but he loves being a big brother to his younger siblings.
