Before singer-songwriter Starshell had an alleged hookup with Mary J. Blige’s estranged husband, Kendu Isaacs, she reportedly was trying to get with another married man…LeBron James.
Sources told us that in May 2014 — shortly after James married high-school sweetheart Savannah Brinson — the wives of Miami Heat stars were flabbergasted to see Starshell in the seats reserved for players’ families at a playoff game against the Nets at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
“She had ‘LeBron’ painted on her nails, she was talking about LeBron and cheered for him loudly," a source said of Starshell, 28, a self-described die-hard Boston Celtics fan.
“In theory, you could say she was a fan, but security brought her down to the floor and the back area after the game was over. That doesn’t happen for fans," said the insider. “She was very decked out — the hair, the makeup, etc."
We’re told Starshell — who was Blige’s protégée before her alleged affair with Isaacs, has co-written hit songs for Kanye West and, somewhat bitterly at this point, Blige herself — was later spotted hanging at the same place as LeBron in New York and at Heat games in Miami.
Now there isn’t any evidence that LeBron was ever friends with Starshell or was receptive of her advances.
