SAN DIEGO – LeBron James has another ring.
A person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press that the Miami Heat star married his longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, at the posh Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego on Saturday, less than three months after he won his second straight NBA title.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the wedding was private, said the ceremony took place in the hotel’s Capella Chapel, and is part of a three-day celebration that will conclude with a brunch today.
James and Brinson, 27, have been together since high school and have two children. James, 28, proposed in January 2012 in Miami Beach.
James, a four-time NBA Most Valuable Player, and the Heat will open training camp next month. In June, they outlasted the San Antonio Spurs in seven games to capture their second consecutive championship.
Intense security measures surrounded the wedding, and even some of the invited guests were unclear on some specific details in the days leading up to the long-awaited event.
Brinson spoke briefly with AP about the wedding this spring, saying she was both excited and nervous. James has only discussed the wedding in general terms, once describing his role as only to ensure “that Savannah gets whatever she wants on her day, the wedding day she always dreamed of.”
