Mrs. James made the following statement in her interview with Essence Magazine:
“I’m his support system with whatever he needs. If he needs someone to listen to him. If he needs to talk or if he says, “Hey babe, I’m tired. Can I take a nap?” I will say “Yeah, baby. Take a nap,” and keep the kids occupied. It’s a part of the role that I play as the mother of his kids and being his wife. The balance that I create in our house is for his success. He is very busy and I understand that, and the kids are at the age now that they get it. Being there for him is a huge part of his success.” (Essence.com)
