Rise to Stardom

Savannah Brinson had no idea who LeBron James was before she attended one of his games. According to her, while dating the NBA star, she never imagined the magnitude of his fame, and only thought that he would be “a hometown hero for his era.” Interestingly, the first time she became the talk of the town was a harrowing experience for her as, after becoming pregnant with his child during her senior year, rumors spread that she did it on purpose to trap James. However, she did not let that get to her. Despite being the wife of the celebrated basketball player, Savannah Brinson has always stayed in the background, supporting him in each of his endeavors, and is still uncomfortable being in the limelight.

Savannah Brinson did her first photoshoot and interview in mid-2010. During this time, she was being described as James’s baby mama by many tabloids, which she thought was derogatory. She also received negative attention after an Instagram model named Heidi Hoback claimed that her husband had slid into her DMs. In spite of all the negativity, the couple has stayed loyal to each other for many years. She has remained a primary target of paparazzi over the past few years.


Savannah Brinson always had a passion for furniture designing and home decoration and has a successful career as an interior designer. Along with her husband, she teamed up with the furniture company American Signature in 2010 and launched their own furniture line, each product of which she herself designed “for a different reason and purpose.” The line Home Court focused on creating style-forward choices for kids and included in its product range: beds, desks, dressers, and more. In partnership with her trainer, David Alexander, Savannah Brinson opened The Juice Spot in 2013 to promote healthy lifestyle through drinks. While the shop became a popular rendezvous spot, she had to close it down in 2016 as it was difficult for her to manage it from Cleveland, where the family had relocated in 2014.
