Gelato is a must-try on every trip to Italy. Just ask LeBron James, who went out for dessert with his wife Savannah Brinson while on vacation in Europe during Labor Day weekend.
On Sunday, during an evening gelato run on the island of Ischia, the basketball player, 36, and his wife, 35, clasped hands. The sportsman wore a tee and shorts, while his eight-year-old wife wore a printed blouse.
During his travels this offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers star even ran across a familiar face: Elton John. On Saturday, Sept. 4, LeBron shared a snapshot with the legendary singer on his Instagram Story and enthused over their meeting. He wrote, “You’re definitely one of a kind, my friend!” “It was a pleasure meeting you and speaking with you!”
The athlete and his wife were also seen exchanging pleasantries with the legendary singer at a restaurant in Nerano ahead of the weekend. The Italian vacation follows a hectic few months for LeBron, who stars in Space Jam: A New Legacy, a solo sequel to the 1996 film Space Jam, which featured Michael Jordan.
The all-star film, directed by Malcolm D. Lee and produced by Ryan Coogler, was released on July 16 and features a stellar cast that includes Zendaya, Michael B. Jordan, and Don Cheadle, among others. LeBron James pondered on taking on a part in a film set in a mythical universe he grew up loving in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in March.
“I had that ‘Wow, Mama, I’m doing this’ feeling. He told the site, “I’m truly shooting Space Jam.” “Just to be in a situation where Warner Bros. and everyone felt confident in my ability to be a part of Space Jam was a gratifying moment for me. That has humbled me greatly.” The sportsman went on to say that he admired Michael’s original universe while also emphasizing that it isn’t a continuation.
“I believe one thing we will demonstrate to the audience is that it is not a sequel. He explained, “It’s its own movie with its own twist.” “However, being able to just be in the Space Jam universe is something Mike developed and owns. That is something I appreciate, and it is something I held with a great deal of responsibility.”
