The two, who were high school sweethearts, got married on Sept. 14, 2013, in San Diego, California, in front of hundreds of people. The guests included Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, Ne-Yo and two unexpected wedding crashers. On Oct. 7, during an episode of his hit HBO series “The Shop,” LeBron recounted his special day and how he found out about the uninvited guests.
The 37-year-old’s relating the story came after Golden State Warriors player Draymond Green revealed that he would uninvite certain people from attending his wedding if he had to do it all over again. Green got married in August to former “Basketball Wives” star Hazel Renee.
LeBron said at the 4:11 mark of the interview, in response to Draymond’s statement, “Imma go even deeper….We had two wedding crashers….that no one knew.” The father of three added that the wedding crashers got “sniffed out” because they called LeBron’s celebrity friend by their real name rather than their nickname.
The Los Angeles Lakers forward said, “This how they got sniffed out. I had a celebrity friend walk by, and they called them they real name that none of us call him.”
He added, while using Paul Rivera, co-creator of HBO’s “The Shop,” as an example, “Say if it was you, and you walk by and they be like ‘What’s up Paul?’…and so you come to me, you like ‘Hey Bron hey – aye you know these n–s?’ I’m like ‘no, why what’s wrong?’ He like ‘These n–s just called me Paul….Everybody in my family know I’m PR ain’t nobody go call me Paul.’ “
Toward the end of the conversation, LeBron explained that after the uninvited guests got exposed, they tried to say they were with one of the attendees — something that person, not publicly identified by LeBron, immediately denied.
He said, “So my security go over to ’em and say ‘Hey, hey who y’all with?’ They like ‘Oh we with him.’ And when they said him, he turned around at the same time and was ‘Hell no! Them motherf–rs ain’t with me’….And they got put out, swear to God. Them motherf–s walked out with a plate and everything. I [almost] smacked that s–t on the ground.”
Although LeBron and Savannah recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary, the couple made headlines in August for discussing a potential vow renewal. The discussion came about when LeBron was seen showing off his attire and Savannah asked him, “What we doing about this vow renewal? Is it happening or nah?”
LeBron responded, “What we doing about what? We could do whatever you want, boo boo … whatever you want to do.”
Since then, no additional details about LeBron and Savannah’s potential vow renewal have been revealed.
