LeBron and Savannah James, happy parents, attended their son Bronny’s graduation with great pride. However, his girlfriend was missing, which was a mystery to many, after he faced racist comments online. Some social media bullies targeted the 18-year-old following photos of him and his prom date emerged. The pictures showed Bronny, who is a future USC basketball player, with his white date, Peyton Gelfuso, who is 19 years old.
On Thursday, Bronny showed his resilience against the hateful remarks and negativity directed towards him. He confidently walked across the stage in Chatsworth, California to collect his diploma, disregarding his critics. LeBron and Savannah were overjoyed to witness this momentous occasion. Despite the recent loss of the Lakers to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday, LeBron was seen beaming with pride while embracing both Bronny and Bryce. Savannah, LeBron’s high school sweetheart, proudly adjusted Bronny’s gown and sash while showering him with affection. The proud father took to Instagram to commend his son, encouraging him to “continue to fly high.”
LeBron James and his wife Savannah were present at their son Bronny’s graduation, and a photo of them with the delighted graduate was shared by LeBron’s mom, Gloria. The proud grandmother congratulated her grandson, expressing how he has always made her proud and how witnessing this milestone moment filled her with an even greater sense of pride.
May this new phase of your young adult life bring you immense happiness and success. Keep exploring and reaching for the stars. You are loved dearly by your Grammy.
Bronny James, son of renowned basketball player LeBron James, recently graduated from high school. The jovial occasion was captured in two videos posted on the Team James family Instagram account. In the footage, Bronny could be seen walking with joy across the school football field and later appeared to be all smiles while crossing the stage during the ceremony. Following his high school graduation, Bronny is set to attend the University of Southern California (USC).

The significant occasion occurred a few days after he dressed up for his senior prom before embarking on his college basketball career next year. The firstborn son of the NBA legend looked suave in an entirely black outfit as he attended his school’s prom in California, which was shared by his mother, Savannah James, on Instagram.
Bronny, a tall guard standing at 6-foot-3, wore a unique custom-made suit from Chrome Hearts in black. His Dior shoes added the perfect complement to his ensemble. The jacket featured the distinct Chrome Hearts hearts design on the front, back, and cuffs, with a white one adorning the outer seam of the pants. Going for a bold look, Bronny chose to forego wearing a shirt under the designer jacket.
Bronny was spotted at the event with Peyton Gelfuso, who is believed to be his girlfriend. The 19-year-old looked stunning in a black satin dress that showed off her shoulders. She wore her blonde hair down in loose curls and is said to have attended Sierra Canyon High School.
Over the weekend, Bronny got ready for his senior prom while gearing up to start his next chapter at USC.
Savannah was left speechless when she saw her son Bronny posing outside their house beside a black Porsche. She shared her pride by posting pictures on Instagram for all to see. Savannah has two other children with her husband, LeBron James, named Bryce and Zhuri. The caption of the post read ‘Prom 2023’ with black heart emojis. Gelfuso, Bronny’s rumored girlfriend, is a member of the Tri Delta sorority and attends Southern Methodist University (SMU), dividing her time between Los Angeles and Dallas.
Last year, Bronny attended prom with Gelfuso. However, this year, he faced vicious racist remarks for taking a white girl to his high school prom. After sharing pictures of the couple, some individuals on the internet expressed displeasure regarding his decision to select someone who is ‘light skinned’ as his prom date. The social media platform was soon inundated with unpleasant comments about the couple. One person wrote, ‘Not a light-skinned woman already,’ while another added, ‘LeBron has more children, hopefully, they will make better choices.’ Another person said, ‘That girl is whiter than white bruh.’
In one tweet, the user expressed their disappointment with the basketball player’s choice of partner by stating that he should have chosen a black queen like his father. Another Twitter user accused the player’s girlfriend of being a gold digger, referencing Kanye West’s song of the same name. Some users shared GIFs and memes to express their disappointment in the player’s choice of date. The basketball star recently committed to playing for USC after signing his National Letter of Intent.
Bronny, a member of the Class of 2023 at Sierra Canyon School, has already committed to playing basketball at USC next year. He is expected to be among the top freshman players in the United States. The talented young athlete has earned five-star recruit status on 24/7sports.com, ranking fourth in California, fifth among combo guards, and 21st overall in the country. Bronny’s talent has garnered scholarship offers from USC, Memphis, and Ohio State, while teams like Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Oregon have expressed interest in him. LeBron James, Bronny’s father, hopes to play with his son in the NBA, but recent reports suggest that he may retire after the Lakers’ recent playoff loss.
