LeBron James has PAID to keep his blue tick on Twitter – even though the billionaire Lakers star insisted he would NOT give Elon Musk $8 to remain verified
It appears that LeBron James chose to pay his money to stay verified on Twitter after all.
Back in March, the Lakers star and the all-time leading points scorer in the NBA tweeted to say he would lose his blue check because he would not be paying to use the website.
But it appears Elon Musk has had the last laugh.
As Twitter removes the blue ticks from its users who don’t want to pay $8 to keep them, LeBron’s remains.
When hovering over the icon, a message comes up saying: ‘This account is verified because they are subscribed to Twitter Blue and verified their phone number.’

On March 31, the Lakers star insisted he would not be paying for verification status.
He wrote on his account: ‘Welp guess my blue tick will be gone soon cause if you know me I ain’t paying the five.’
James incorrectly thought it would cost him five dollars but it is actually eight – and the feature, which is called ‘Twitter Blue’ is already available for users who are willing to pay for it.
James is currently battling it out with the Lakers in their NBA playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies.
