Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James called Braylon Edwards "childish" Monday when asked about the incident involving his friend.

Givens said he went to Lutheran Hospital Monday morning because he suffered a black eye and a cut. He said he also has a headache.

LeBron James tells 19 Action News "it's unfortunate that it happened" and "hopefully my friend is doing well at this point."

Cleveland Browns Head Coach Eric Mangini spoke briefly about the incident Monday saying only "it's something I spoke to Braylon about" and that "this is something I will continue to gather information on."

Edwards Givens is a promoter with Eighty81 LLC, an events management and marketing firm that hosts parties on Sundays at The View Night Club.
