Found August 01, 2012 on The Jersey Chaser:

 All eyes are on Team USA swimmer Lauren Perdue who will swim the first leg of the 4×200 women’s freestyle relay… including LeBron James. James asked Perdue to dinner when the men’s basketball team visited Olympic Village.

Perdue confirmed the rumored meeting saying, “He did. He was kind of joking but he was basically like, ‘Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?’ And I said, ‘Um, I’m sorry, I have a curfew. So I turned that one down, yeah.”

James is engaged to his high school sweetheart and baby mama Savannah Brinson.
