The world was shocked when Vanessa Bryant’s mother decided to do an interview where she revealed that she was allegedly kicked out of the family home and had her cars taken away. In a time where the widow is suffering immeasurable grief, her mother has taken her feud to the next step by filing a lawsuit.
Sofia Laine claims that she was robbed of what Kobe Bryant promised her after his passing due to her daughter. Laine says that Kobe promised her she’d never have to work because he would provide everything that she needs. Sofia added that she took care of the couple’s kids without being paid for it.
Meanwhile, Vanessa is disgusted with what’s happening. She says that Kobe never promised her anything and that she and Kobe have been the primary caretakers for their children.
Sofia released another statement where she doubles down and questions why her daughter is doing this.
‘For starters, I would like to state that I do not enjoy airing our family grievances in the public. Although I filed a lawsuit, I did not make any public comments and was hoping for the court process to run its course without the publicity, as hurtful as it is. I did not want this and do not want this. All I wanted is what I worked for. Vanessa, despite everything that I have been promised and done for her and the family, has attempted to sever all ties and renege on all obligations and agreements,’ she started.
Laine went on to say: ‘Why would she do this to her own mother? I am so disappointed, hurt, and wronged to the point that I had no choice but to file a lawsuit. I am nearly 70 years old, my health is deteriorating, and my own daughter is dong this to me?’
She added that she was the family nanny for 20 years and had to go by a round-the-clock schedule to care for her grandchildren.
According to Vanessa, her mother is demanding $5 million, a house, and a Mercedes.
