• LeBron James and his wife Savannah met in high school and have been together ever since.
• They became engaged at a star-studded New Year’s Eve bash in 2011, and tied the knot in 2013.
• The couple has three children, and James is the one of the highest-paid athletes in the world.
In 2013, LeBron James married his longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson. Their lavish wedding included a performance of “Crazy in Love” from Beyonce and Jay-Z, according to Deadspin. The three days of festivities also featured plenty of celebrity cameos, from family friend and fellow NBA star Dwayne Wade to singer Neyo, wrote The Hollywood Reporter.
The couple started off as high school sweethearts, who grabbed dinner at Outback Steakhouse on their first date and stuck together through James’ meteoric rise through the NBA.
Today, they have three children and two sprawling mansions: a $ 21 million mansion in Los Angeles, and a $ 9.2 million one in Akron, Ohio. The three-time NBA champion is worth $ 275 million as of 2016 and is one of the highest-paid athletes in the world, according to Forbes.
Here’s a look inside their 15-year-relationship:
James and Savannah both grew up in Akron, Ohio and attended rival high schools. He was a sports prodigy, excelling at basketball and football. She was a cheerleader and softball player.
They met at a football game. She told Harper’s Bazaar she wasn’t aware of his athletic prowess when she accepted his invitation to a basketball game: “I had no idea who he was.”
