Lebron's "Sidekick" Savannah Does Harper's Bazaar, Gets Fab While Talking Miami & Marriage

 Lebron's longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, got fab for an interview and photoshoot with Harper's Bazaar. Read on for the deets on her & Lebron's relationship plus the move to Miami...

 

 

The interview will appear in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar hitting stands August 17.  And Savannah is posing with her and Lebron's cutie patootie sons Jr. and Bryce by the pool.  Here's some outtakes about why she no likey Miami (chick is on her defense early right?  Not even mad.) and her and Bron's marriage:

On the move to Miami

Savannah: "Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is great: You go for three days and get some sun, and it’s time to go home, it will definitely be an adjustment, but we’ll make it. We’re not complaining. Whatever LeBron felt was comfortable, I’m with him. I just love him so much. We’re soul mates."

 

On marriage for her & Lebron

Savannah: "I’ve definitely not put a fire under his ass, I would never rush him to do something like that. We’re really comfortable with the way things are now. And it’s not up to me. When it happens, it happens. We talk about it. If we do it, I want it to be forever."

 

Lebron speaking about Savannah 

Lebron: "A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And she’s that, she’s got my back, and I love her for that."

A couple more quotes from the article:

LeBron Jr.: “I’m going to play in the NBA,” he announces proudly. Brinson explains, “He sees his dad playing and he thinks it’s cool. But he can do whatever he wants to do in life. He doesn’t have to walk in his father’s footsteps.”

 

LeBron Sr. says that he would be thrilled to see his sons play ball: “Well, like any father, I would hope that they would follow in my footsteps. That would be a great story—and as a father, I would be on cloud nine every day. Ultimately, though, only the big man above knows their future. They do have lots of talent, though.”

 

"Sidekick" though?  Interesting.

I can see why she doesn't want to move to Miami, endless jumpoffs for days!  Especially since she's not 'rushing' or concerned about getting married.

Chick's looking fabulous as always though.  Protect what's yours girl...before somebody else does...

I like Savannah and LeBron.

I like Savannah and LeBron. I don't think he meant anything negative in his remarks. Maybe he didn't say what people think is the "right" word when he said sidekick but I don't think he just thinks of her as his children's mother. I think he genuinely respects and loves Savannah and also values her as his partner in life. When he said sidekick, maybe it's a "me and you against the world" thing. I don't know why now everyone is up in arms about them not being married... They weren't married the 7 years he was with Cleveland. I think they would even qualify for common law in Ohio anyway. We don't know what their home lives were like growing up. Did she have her father in the home? Maybe they see getting married as a huge committment and are skittish because they don't want to ruin their current situation and get divorced.

You're right, there is no

You're right, there is no "right" thing to say. But it's like Steve Harvey says, listen, a man will always tell you where you stand.

This comment is not directed

This comment is not directed at any one in particular..... Just a question, well thought rather. All the women on here who say Savannah is foolish for not rushing him to get married and that she is stupid for being called a sidekick, etc. etc. Answer me this question truthfully...... If YOUR guy is worth 100+ million, you got two kids with him, been together with him since before he got rich, love him unconditionally.... but he tells you that he's not readyy to get married yet. What exactly are YOU going to do? Leave?? Really?? Be honest with yourselves... Its easy to point the finger and say what YOU will and won't accept when you on the outside looking in... But I highly doubt any of you would be saying all those things if you were her. IJS...

this ain't even about her not

this ain't even about her not getting married, they can take their time on that. but if she doesn't move to miami with him its a wrap and she's being naive about that one...and speaking from a way grown women's perspective - i'm much more sorry about the niccas i allowed to take me for granted than for anyone i demanded respect from...she'll get there either with lebron or someone else..

I’m in committed relationship

I’m in committed relationship and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t leave. I’m a very independent woman so no I wouldn’t stay because he’s financially set for the rest of his life (I’d like to contribute to our home, and wouldn’t want to feel that I’m living under anybody). But if I love him why would I leave just because he’s not ready to get married. I think this is something that the two have talked about and they seem really comfortable with the way things are. Who are we to judge their relationship when a lot of us aren’t even in a committed relationship. A lot of you are making it seem as if, if he doesn’t get married he’s going to go out there and cheat. A ring never stopped anyone from cheating. They’ve been together for years and I think they both know one another better than we know them (‘cause God knows I don’t know anything about these two young people personally). If marriage was a deal breaker then I don’t think she would still be there (this is just my opinion) because she can live comfortably with the money she would be getting for their two sons. So no, I don’t think it’s about money with her. I think she genially loves him and that’s why she’s still there. I wish them all the best.

TRUTHFULLY NO CAUSE I WOULD

TRUTHFULLY NO CAUSE I WOULD HAVE MARRIED HIM FIRST THEN POPPED OUT SOME KIDDIES SO I CAN'T AGREE WITH THAT. I WOULD HAVE WORKED HIM DIFFERENTLY! IJS. WHEN A MAN TRULY LOVES YOU AND DESIRE YOU HE WOULD MARRY YOU AT THE FIRST CHANCE HE GETS ANY TIME AND ANY WHERE IF ITS DOUBT OR SOMETHING YOU KEEP TRUGGLING WITH OR PUTTING OFF CHANCES IS HE COULD LIVE WITH OUT YOU AND YOU MAY NOT BE HIS SOUL MATE.

Honestly, I would leave ...

Honestly, I would leave ... but it's because I'm honestly not impressed with money. And I wouldn't move in with my rich man until he put a ring on it (let alone have his kids, let him pay my bills or my rent--that's just preposterous). I think love is about companionship, knowing each others' stories, and being supportive, rather than what you can get.
g.'s picture

I totally agree with your

I totally agree with your definition of love. And who's to say that they don't have that, and didn't have that before he got drafted. They were high school sweethearts, right? So she had to know HIM before all the money. So I'm sure, with her, it's not all about what she can get. He got drafted and became rich at the age of 18. No 18 year old is thinking about marriage, right? My point is this... If at 18 your bf of two plus years signs a 100 million dollar contract and asks you to move with him, are you saying no because he hasn't put a ring on it?? Thats the decision she had to make. And my question was/is are the majority of the women on here telling me that at 18 they would tell him "not until you marry me"?? I think thats a little naive.... And now 7+ years have flown by and you gone rush him to marry you... I don't think so. But then again I'm a guy. Just my opinion...

I got pregnant at 18 and he

I got pregnant at 18 and he asked to marry him at 18 and he didn't have 1/3 of Lebron's means to support us. BUT HE LOVED ME ENOUGH TO WANT TO MARRY ME. WHEN A MAN TRULY LOVES A WOMAN HE WANTS TO MARRY HER period. He knows that's the ULTIMATE gesture of his love (besides dying for her)

There's nothing in the article that says HE DIDN'T/DOESN'T want to marry her... just the commentors' speculation.

…sadly, some black women have chosen to go the ‘baby mama’ route, which is detrimental to the black family… …is it so wrong to ask these sistas to THINK before deciding to open their legs to those who will most likely never marry them?…smmfh…and why is it like pulling teeth for a black male to marry the mother of their children?..

No she isn’t not smart, she

No she isn’t not smart, she is a doormat. Savannah (and women like her) do not rock the boat with their men, because they may get a response they don’t like. Sounds like Lebron is having his cake and eating it too. Why would you want be the mother of a man’s children, when he isn’t even prepared to stand up and make a legal and religious statement that he is commited to you for life? I doubt he will marry her ever, she’s given him everything on a plate

I know this is stupid ass

I know this is stupid ass hell but....if we could go back to the days when, if you had a baby and you were not married, the community made you feel like you were just filth and not worth the dirt on the bottom of your shoe. I bet that would at least put a dent in some of this baby mama madness.

I bet it's one or two wives

I bet it's one or two wives talking sh!t in here. Become one first. Sidekick is an insult and she's a royal fool. She'll have child support (a substantial amount at that) but she has no rights to any of his property, investments or anything else. It's not about the material either. Marriage is hard work, love and support. No nothing is guaranteed not even faithfulness. But if you are committed that's the least of your worries. He isn't marrying her for a reason. Eight years and children of school age and he's not committed? That means he won't try because in the back of his mind he's looking for better, she better know and make a move.

I wish she didn't do the

I wish she didn't do the interview b/c one of the things I liked about their relationship was it was no one's business but theres.. now everyone's going to have something to say.. well hell everyone already did.. As for the marriage thing... I don't believe her.. she wasn't marriage and she wants it with him.. but he's obviously not ready for that and I feel her on not pushing the issue b/c like she said.. she wants it forever and if you rush a man to jump the broom before he's ready then you are going to end up unhappy.. However.. what exactly is not ready? they've been together forever, have two children and her life is basically dedicated to his needs.. so umm... what again I ask.. what exactly is not ready?

savanna girl DONT BE

savanna girl DONT BE FOOLISH...or dont try to fool anyone. u mean to tell me ur investing all of this into something that aint guaranteed. marriage is WAY MORE THAN A PIECE OF PAPER. cuz guess what if and when shit hits the fan what security will u have intact for yourself. why won't he marry you...he loves u and all so what is the problem???lebron is being selfish if u ask me..either that or he is thinking smart. he knows that he has the upper hand. savannah girl ur sounding so naive right now.....

When did getting married =

When did getting married = faithful? Most you people aren't in commented relationships yet feel the need to talk about what's right or wrong in a relationship. You can't force someone to do something that they do not want to do. If he doesn't see marriage in their future right now does not mean he doesn't love her, does not mean he's going to go out and cheat. And if he's going to cheat, a ring isn't going to stop him. Would you rather him say "wifey" "boo" "my old lady" like get serious. You're making it sound like he said "side chick". The man said "sidekick" basically his Bonnie. He loves her and she loves him. They have two beautiful sons together and they seem happy and content. People who aren't happy always looking for the littlest thing to dog someone that is.

LOL @ "step up your vocab" and "same connotation" The only person that seem ignorant is you. Why, you may ask. Simple. If you understood exactly what I said why simply write a synonym? It makes no sense. Seems like you'd rather play the position of the human thesaurus. Do you have an email address because schools coming up. Instead of getting help/advice from my professors maybe your ignorant ass can help me out with my papers. =)

whoa whoa whoa. people, it's

whoa whoa whoa. people, it's 2010. marriage isn't that big of deal. after seven years of living together, it's recognized as a civil union anyhow, plus they have two kids together. i personally don't even think marriage is all that awesome. it's purely legal and you can have beauty in a relationship without all the mechanics of marriage. also, i refuse to get married until all americans have the right to. it seems that these two have a healthier relationship than most married couples do. sooo, whatever.

IF YOUR PARTNER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE THAT U JUST DON'T LOVE THEM ENOUGH TO WANNA MARRY THEM THEN THEY ARE AS STUPID AS U SOUND!!!! LOL!!!!

God forbid something happens

God forbid something happens to LJ...Savannah will not get the first call..his mama Wiill...His MOTHER not his WIFE will have a say so as to what happens for example in a hospital situation, who is the next of kin they ask...and his MOTHER will step forward to take control...Whatever moms decides go! So for all you who say marriage doesn't matter etc..IT DOES. I'm sure Savannah will always be taken care of finanically..the issue is why won't he commit to her? I agree it's a shame what has happened ot our community.

You are wrong and on here to

You are wrong and on here to sabotage black families! Civil union my ass! They are not gay! Who cares if it is 2010, morals shouldn't change. They are fornicating and that is a problem. She could go straight to hell! Black people came from a strong family structure. Now look at us, listening to hoodrats and white people. The sad part is they will speak it and not do it. But, we will do it, while their race is getting married everyday. While black girls are just getting knocked up and left. We need to listen to God and God only. Their are loving marriages out there. She should want to get married to her kid's father like 911. What is this teaching her kids, because my daddy is rich, my mommy is not good enough to marry. Though she is go enough to lay with every night and make babies. Please, out society is sick!!!

I like Savannah even though

I like Savannah even though this picture looks air brushed like crazy and it does not even look like her she usually looks much prettier...why does she look like she can be Lebron's identical twin in the phone????? WTF!!! I hope her and Lebron last and that they do get married. They make a cute couple. She is not rushing because with two kids she knows regardless she is going to get paid but it should not be about that and more women should want to be a wife but I do not think it is our fault completely I think its society, our culture etc where men just are not popping the question like back in the day. I hope them the best and I am sure she is going to MISS her familia!

I live and have partied

I live and have partied plenty in Miami. I am married to a gorgeous , tall Dominican. He gets hit on ALL of the time by pretty girls when we go to clubs, so I know first hand this is a scary place to live. GORGEOUS girls everywhere. This is not Idaho, and it's not even New York. The prettiest girls that you know would be just average here, so , I feel for her for sure.
white chocolate's picture

I agree with most of ya'll.

I agree with most of ya'll. But we also need to understand that Lebron came from a single parent home like many African American men in our country. It's hard to say that these brothers need to commit, get married etc, when they don't have or were never encouraged to aspire to do so. How is he going to set a standard for the ultimate act of commitment for himself...when it isn't seen as healthy, positive or even as an option for many of these brothers, especailly athletes & entertainers. To many black men popping out kids and having life long partners..or baby mamas seems more acceptable than marrige. Savannah...is to caught up to see clearly. But that's her choice. I do wish she would get a job or something?? run his charities, do speaking engagements for young girls, start a business etc..something to not just spend his money. That just makes her look pathetic. And I wish my man would refer to me as a sidekick, that's real high school talk!!! Sidekick is now a term of endearment??? to have that printed on a nationally & internationally renowned magazine- is so disrespectful...he's basically telling all the hoes in the world that this Savannah thing isn't all the serious right now! and he's willing to come and play!

He didn't even come from a single parent home. His mama was some nicca's jumpoff ghetto bitch and she lucked up on a wealthy talented son. He was raised by another family near the end of his high school career. Look it up.

I disagree with the people

I disagree with the people saying to look at someone else's marriage for inspiration, Like Beyonce. Unless you know people personally and know what is going on behind close doors this should not be the case. Look at your parents hopefully they set a good example. And besides it doesn't take a genius to know that you should probably be married before the kids. Things are less messier tat way. Some of the time.
Anonymous's picture

@Anonymous I agree 100%. I

@Anonymous I agree 100%. I look at my Parents but they also taught my how to do things and what not to accept. I do however think people can learn from Beyonce. She's rare. What is the rule is what Diddy does. Which is have children with multiple women all hoping they will get the ring or the commitment. Like Kim for example. But unlike any women in entertainment. Beyonce was a WIFE never a baby's mother. She also did not date Shawn Carter for long before he gave her a wedding. And they seems very loving and supportive of each other. That is a great example. I also cited the Obama's. We need more married examples in a community that has more children out of wedlock than ANY other. This is been the rule in the African American community for far too long. My Parents are married and still are married. And I will be married before I have any children. Lebron James has been with this girl for over 10 years and he still wants to play the field. That is his choice but the Mother of his children should have made better choices for herself and her family. Children don't come first. The Relationship should. They should be equals. Not the Sidkick who tolerates everything because she has no other choice and one day he may marry her when he's run through all of Miami. NO!
