CLEVELAND – LeBron James’ LRMR Management Company has decided to part ways with Johnny Manziel, Fox 8 sports anchor John Telich has confirmed.

Earlier on Wednesday, James called rumors about Manziel wearing a disguise in Las Vegas “a distraction.” James spoke with reporters Wednesday morning before the Cavs play the Washington Wizards.

ESPN Las Vegas said Manziel was in Vegas the night before the Browns’ season finale against the Steelers. The second-year QB was reportedly wearing a blonde wig, fake mustache and glasses, telling people to call him “Billy.”

According to ESPN, James said he wasn’t sure about all of the details of the situation.

“It’s just a distraction for not only himself, but for everyone that’s around him including family, people that represent him, the people that are around him. And he’ll figure it out at some point. We all hope.”
