Some celebrities will do anything to escape fans including the so-called 'groupies.' Case in point Basketball Superstar LeBron James who was recently spotted out in his red bucket hat and blue shirt leaving a party in Los Angeles. Like moths to a flame, a group of women wearing tiny dresses and high heels started stalking the 6'-9" baller. The ladies are heard on the video asking if James wanted to 'go to a strip club.' The quick-thinking LeBron clearly not wanting any part of those optics, pulled a slick move and quickly ran down the up escalator going in the wrong direction to evade his amorous fans. Apparently, it worked.
Corinthian Williams, A Miami-based freelance videographer first caught what has become a viral moment and with admiration laughed," this guy is crazy."
LeBron clearly showed another level of game we didn't know he had. So it inspired us to do a little research on the creative fan and paparazzi evading tactics of other celebrities.
Back in the day, Justin Bieber would reportedly go shopping in a gas mask. In 2013 Jaden Smith was seen with an iron man costume while hanging with then gal pal Kylie Jenner. Kim Kardashian has been known to hire body doubles and Shia LeBeouf has gone as far as to wear a paper bag over his head. At the 2014 premiere of Nymphomaniac, LaBeouf wore a paper bag over his head that read: "I am not famous anymore." Apparently, that move is a go-to for LaBeouf, who has used the paper bag disguise quite a few times.
We wonder if LeBron's move was spontaneous or if the NBA great has pulled that maneuver in the past to escape fans and/or paparazzi? Hmm, inquiring minds want to know.
