So we all know how the Olympic Village is basically a huge orgy, right?
Well, it seems that LeBron James can't even really tap into the less scandalous side of that — as he's been turned down after asking his countrywomen and swimmer Lauren Perdue if she wanted to go for dinner with him!
LeBron seems to have a lot of free time on his hands as he and the men's basketball team pretty much wait around for the finals, so hey, why not ask someone on a date?
Turns out Lauren just wasn't feeling it!
"Lebron James just invited me to dinner.Um wuuuutttt?!?"
She expanded on it in an interview later:
"He was kind of joking. But he was basically like, 'Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?' And I said, 'Um, I'm sorry, I have a curfew.'"
It's too bad these games aren't in Antarctica, he could use some of that ice for such a serious BURNNN!
LOLz! It still sounds like she snubbed him, regardless if he was "kind of joking."
Maybe she just didn't want to wait around to hear if he was actually going to dinner with her, only to have him make an hour long ESPN special out of it to break her heart.
Smart move, Lauren!
