When Fontainebleau valet Sorel Rockefeller got slapped by Gloria James, the mother of LeBron James, instead of seeing stars he must have been seeing dollar signs. He's quit his job and is now considering a lawsuit against James. He's also been to a doctor and plans to visit a chiropractor.
Oh, come on dude, you get slapped by a drunk woman in her 40s who couldn't even stand up straight. The only thing you deserve is an apology.
"Yes it did," Rockefeller, a Haitian immigrant, told CBS4 after he was asked if it hurt when James slapped him. "This was very bad. You should not slap people in this country. I have been a valet for three years and have been at the Fountainebleau since September. This is the worst thing that's happened to me."
Really, the worst thing that's happened to you?
"Then she said shut up and she slapped my face," he stated. "That's when she fell down on the ground. The reason she was upset was because it was taking awhile to get her car."

Rockefeller also claims that James repeatedly screamed "Do you know who I am?" during the confrontation.
Rockefeller has quit his job, hired an attorney, and plans to sue James.
Yes, she just happens to be the mother of a very, very rich man. But, really, her slap hurt so much you have to see a chiropractor? People get slapped by drunk, middle-age woman on Bravo all the time, but somehow none of the various Real Housewives have managed to end up at the chiropractor. Rockefeller, please!
