“A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And [Savannah’s] that. She’s got my back, and I love her for that.” -Lebron
It was a New Years Eve dinner and celebrations for King James 27th Birthday last night, however it was Lebron’s long-time girlfriend Savannah who walked away with the biggest gift. An engagement ring!
Party guests that included Queen Latifah, Sanaa Lathan, Jessica White, Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade and more watched in awe as Lebron dropped to one knee and asked Savannah for her hand in marriage just after midnight There was no doubt that she would say ‘Yes’ and she did with a few tears. Savannah and Lebron have been dating since she was 16 and have two kids together; Lebron Jr (7) and Bryce (4). It’s about time he put a ring on it!
Later, they finished off the night by the Shelborne pool where Nas and Lauryn Hill treated guests to a performance of ‘If I Ruled The World’.
Meanwhile, they were showered with congratulatory tweets from celebrity friends Chris Paul, Monica Brown, Lala & Carmelo Anthony, and Heat General Partner Micky Arison throughout the night. Check out the tweets and more pics below
