Vaneisha Robinson, the woman who claimed she bought a LeBron James pendant at a Cleveland garage sale for $5, only to find out it was worth more than $10,000, is now claiming that some associate of LeBron James forced her to give back the pendant. She claims that she received a phone call from the mother of LeBron James’ right hand man, Maverick Carter who runs James’ marketing firm, LRMR.
“[Powers] said that LeBron James was at her house and they wanted me to come over there. They were going to make me an offer that I couldn’t refuse,” Robinson said.
It turned out the one-of-a-kind pendant belongs to Carter, who claims it was stolen. Robinson said she and her mother went to the Wadsworth house Carter shares with his mother, believing James was going to buy the pendant and give it back to Carter.
“When I got there, LeBron James was not there. It was about eight or nine other people there,” Robinson said. “They pretty much accused me, they threatened me and they used their authority to they (sic) best ability to get the pendant in their possession.”
Robinson said she and her mother drove to Carter’s house in the 500 block of Caledonia Drive in her mother’s pickup truck.
“They blocked her truck in the driveway. They told us that we weren’t going anywhere until they got that pendant. I was scared for my life,” she said.
