LeBron James kept dozens of fans waiting at Blaze Pizza in California after the newly-signed Los Angeles Laker and pizza shop owner promoted a party at his store, but failed to show up.
Haven’t been to a pizza party in a minute ?? Culver City? ???? https://t.co/1QxgALyekK— LeBron James (@KingJames) July 9, 2018
The former Cavs did not guarantee an appearance at the party celebrating James' move to Los Angeles, but many fans interpreted his tweet that way.
An hour before @KingJames is set to show up to @BlazePizza event, the line wraps around the corner, through the parking lot, and all the way down the block. Unsure if people are here to meet LeBron or for the free pizza. Will update. pic.twitter.com/PK67xAYnTl— Danny Heifetz (@Danny_Heifetz) July 10, 2018
So LeBron James really is going to be at a pizza party in Culver City. The line goes around the block and then some. pic.twitter.com/3Wg7q4M93i— Joe Lago (@joelago) July 10, 2018

It was later declared that James was not showing up at the event.
LeBron will not be showing up for the Blaze Pizza party here, an employee just announced.— Joe Lago (@joelago) July 11, 2018
His wife Savannah posted a photo of James basking in the pool around the same time of the pizza party.
James is an original investor with Blaze Pizza.
