Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of JAY-Z and Beyoncé, got adorably starstruck while meeting LeBron James after his game at Staples Center last night (Mar. 8).
After James and the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 112 to 103, he went over to talk to JAY-Z as he stood courtside with Blue. She asked her father to make a special request from James, but JAY wanted her to ask him herself.
“I can’t do it,” the 4:44 rapper replied. “If you want it, you gotta tell him….You almost got it out. Yeah, just do it.”
Blue Ivy then asked James for an autographed basketball.
”You want a ball from me?” James asked. “Okay, I got you.”
James then said that he would send it to her “soon.”
”You got school on Monday?” he asked. “By the time you get out of school on Monday, you’ll have it.”
Blue sure knows how to steal the spotlight. The 8-year-old recently broke the internet when she posed for pictures with Megan Thee Stallion and her mom. The trio hit up the photo booth at The Carters’ New Year’s Eve party and gave us photos that have already garnered over 2,000,000 likes on Megan’s Instagram.
Blue also made headlines when she stole the show at the annual Wearable Art Gala by casually bidding $19,000 during the auction portion of the festivities.
Blue jumped in during the art auction, which was hosted by Star Jones. She can be seen raising her paddle to bid on a piece of art. JAY-Z hilariously then jumps in, playfully trying to take the paddle away from her. Social media users took to Twitter to say how broke they were after seeing Blue bid thousands for art.
