Heidi Hoback – Everything to Know About Lebron James DM Girl

But for Instagram and the direct message feature, the name Heidi Hoback might mean nothing to basketball and sports fans all over the world. However, they exist, and through them, Heidi became one of the most famous names on the platform after she leaked an unexpected direct message (DM) conversation with LeBron James, who is arguably one of the biggest sports players on the planet.

If it were another player, it would have been just another day on Instagram, but LeBron James has a reputation of fidelity to his wife, whom he has been with since high school and thus, a DM suggesting the basketball player was stepping outside his marriage became newsworthy.

Although nothing was stated explicitly and either party has confirmed nothing, many wondered who Heidi Hoback is. We answer everything you need to know below.

Everything You Need to Know About Heidi Hoback

Before diving into everything you need to know about Heidi Hoback. Here is a refresher on what happened between her and LeBron James.

On a relatively normal day in the fall of 2017, Heidi Hoback, an Instagram model, posted screenshots of a conversation with Lakers superstar, LeBron James. The famous basketball player slid into her DMs, asking her to teach him how to hunt in exchange for him to teach her how to play basketball.

On the surface, it seemed innocent, but it quickly became a mini-controversy when Heidi got accused of calling LeBron a ‘buck,’ after explaining their interaction in YouTube video. LeBron also came under fire for infidelity allegations by those who believed his message meant more than it said.

Without further ado, here is everything you need to know about one of a couple of women who have gotten LeBron James into a rare infidelity scandal.

1. She is a Virginia Girl

Heidi Hoback was born on the 1st of February 1994 in Virginia to Paula Hoback and Frederick Hoback. She is one of two children born to her parents; her only sibling is a brother, Charles, who was born in 1992.

Also, by her birthday, she is an Aquarius, the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac.

2.  Heidi Hoback is a college graduate

If you thought of Heidi Hoback as another random high schooler who is trying to make a career off of Instagram, you would be wrong.
