Kobe Bryant Sues His Mother

Los Angeles Lakers’ season is over and Kobe Bryant is recovering from a torn Achilles. However, recovery is not the only thing that keeps Bryant busy – he is also locked into a legal feud with his own mother, Pamela Bryant.

According to Philly.com, Bryant’s mother wanted to auction off her son’s memorabilia:

Until Pamela Bryant, Kobe Bryant’s mother, wanted to auction it off for an expected $1.5 million so she could use the money to buy a house in Nevada.

That’s when the Los Angeles Lakers shooting star (and Lower Merion High School basketball phenomenon) put the brakes on the idea, sending a cease-and-desist letter to the auctioneer, Goldin Auctions L.L.C. of West Berlin.

The 42 items of merchandise, which include several Lower Merion uniforms worn by the player and two 2000 Lakers Championship rings designed for his parents, were to go up for auction in June, each authenticated as genuine by Pamela Bryant.

According to the report, Kobe’s mother wanted to buy a new house for the money she would receive. Certainly seems like a touchy subject. I suggest you to go read the full report on Philly.com for all the details.
