American swimmer Lauren Perdue proudly tweeted that she turned down LeBron James, after he asked her out to dinner. Scott Fowler was able to get the full story from Perdue:

I asked Perdue about it Wednesday. "The basketball players were nice enough to kind of come out and meet the swimmers and take pictures," Perdue said, speaking of a recent evening when the basketball players toured the Olympic Village (they aren't staying there -- the swimmers are).

 
LeBron did take a liking to Perdue, though, who is a star swimmer at the University of Virginia. So did he really ask her to dinner?
 
"He did," Perdue said. "He was kind of joking but he was basically like, 'Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?' And I said, 'Um, I'm sorry, I have a curfew. So I turned that one down, yeah."
 
One more note: Perdue said LeBron was "gracious" and certainly didn't imply that he was asking her to anything other than a meal at the Olympic Village dining hall. 
 
 
The biggest news Perdue has made at the Olympics, though, was when she sent out a tweet one night saying LeBron James had asked her to dinner and a picture of the two of them posed together.
 
It's not so surprising that Team USA hung out with the American simmers if they all looked as attractive as Perdue. Her tweet about LeBron was deleted probably after Perdue realized that LeBron was actually engaged to his longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson, and that he also has two kids with her.
