LeBron James has been caught in his own social media scandal. The Cleveland Cavaliers player has been accused of allegedly flirting with aspiring model Rachel Bush on social media.
LeBron James has been making headlines after an 18-year-old woman outed him for allegedly sending her direct messages on social media. Rachel Bush shared screenshots of her alleged conversation with James on Twitter. James reportedly wrote, “Hey what’s up!” before Bush posted the now deleted screenshot (see it at The New York Daily News report) to her fans with the confused response, “Haha wut.”
According to Rachel, she claims to be the girlfriend of Cleveland Browns safety Jordan Poyer. The story gets even more interesting because Rachel and Jordan were at the Cleveland Cavaliers game just before LeBron slid into her DMs. Rachel took to Instagram to share a photo of their courtside seats at the game with the caption: “basketball with bae.”
She took to Twitter to tell one of her followers that she didn’t even know the NBA star was a married man. She wrote that she “didn’t know he had a wife and KIDS. Just knew the name. Not even into basketball like that…”
Bush also had an interview on The Billy Madison Show, dishing that her boyfriend noticed that James was checking her out during the game.
“My boyfriend claims he did… He has a wife and two or three kids, I know he respects them. There are scenarios where friends and handlers of famous people DM me and try to talk to me pretending to be them.”
LeBron proposed to his high school sweetheart, Savannah Brinson, at a party on New Year’s Eve in 2011. The couple later married in September 2014. They have three children together. Check out Rachel’s full interview below.
Since James’ alleged cheating scandal has surfaced, Bush has become even more popular. She’s well-known in the Instagram world for her controversial bikini photos and booty shots, but the scandal has made her even more famous. At this moment, Bush has over 250,000 Instagram followers. However, she deleted her Twitter account shortly after she posted a screenshot of James’ direct message.
So, who is Rachel Bush? She’s apparently more than just another Instagram model. She is currently pursuing her education at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, according to her Facebook page. Rachel graduated from high school with her associate’s degree completed. Although she’s just a teenager, she admitted that she wants to complete her bachelor’s by next year to pursue a career in international sales.
She has reportedly achieved her voluptuous figure by hitting the gym five or six days a week. Bush is the outdoorsy type of girl who loves to hike, ski, snowboard, jet ski, and ride dirt bikes. She played basketball, soccer, and softball all throughout school.
Little do most fans know, Rachel was previously linked to New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski. The two were rumored to be dating, when she was seen hanging out with the football player via her Snapchat, according to a tweet that was posted by Terez Owens.

She revealed on Snapchat that the Gronk was trying to flirt with her. But it looks like Bush and Gronk were never involved since she’s been dating Poyer since 2015, according to the Daily Mail. But Bush has been linked to a long string of rappers and athletes since she often shares photos of herself with them on her Instagram page.
Getting back to LeBron James, is the Cleveland Cavaliers player really a cheater? It’s no secret that most professional athletes aren’t faithful to their wives. Even L.A. Lakers star Nick Young is involved with his own cheating scandal at the moment. But LeBron and Savannah have always appeared to be a happy couple that has never made headline news.
LeBron also hasn’t responded to the allegations. Do you think LeBron James is a cheater? Do you believe he actually sent that message to Rachel Bush? Sound off below in the comments section.
