Miami Heat superstar LeBron James‘ mother has agreed to settle a nasty lawsuit brought against her by a valet she slapped because he didn’t bring her car fast enough, Gossip Extra has learned exclusively.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, although a source familiar with the case said Gloria James will be paying ex-Fontainebleau Miami Beach valet Rock Feller Sorel for his trouble.

According to the lawsuit, Sorel claimed to be emotionally scarred because of the national attention brought on him by the case.

Neither Chris Lyons nor Sandy Becher, Gloria’s lawyers, nor Bob Stok, Sorel’s, commented.

The lawsuit was filed nearly two years ago, in the wake of the incident that had Gloria James arrested for battery and disorderly intoxication.

The first charge was dropped and she was sentenced to community service for the second. That had Stok holler that prosecutors did not seek jail for Gloria because of her NBA-leading son.

On the civil front, things were tense, too. At one point, Gloria James was ordered to return to Miami on a private jet two days before a hearing to make sure she’d show up.

And in a scathing letter to authorities, Stok claimed Gloria James was abusing what he called her “quasi-celebrity” status and “flouting” the justice system.

This week’s agreement to settle occurred as the case was headed for a Jan. 7 trial that threatened to ensnare a least one Heat official, team charity director Steve Stowe.

    It’s good to see not everyone can flout the justice system. No one has the right to put their hands on anyone for whatever reason and added to that insult them for their trouble. This should teach her and anyone else who might engage in that behavior that it is wrong and will be addressed by the people and the system.
