Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa Bryant settles ‘disgraceful’ lawsuit against mother

The legal battle between late NBA star Kobe Bryant's widow, Vanessa Bryant, and her mother Sofia Laine has reached a settlement. 

The case has officially been closed, after it was first filed in December 2020. The terms of settlement, however, have been kept private, reported Us Weekly. 

Laine had alleged that she worked as an “unpaid personal assistant and nanny” for her grandchildren.” She also claimed that her late son-in-law “promised to take care of her for the rest of her life.”

According to the court papers, “Kobe Bryant’s promises did not see the light of day as he is now deceased, and Vanessa Bryant took each and every step she could to void and cancel all of Kobe Bryant’s promises made to [Laine]. Vanessa Bryant did not intend to honor any of the Bryants’ representations, agreements and promises at any stage.”

Vanessa denied the statement while to Us Weekly, claiming her late husband did not promise her mother anything, while also refuting her claims that she worked as an unpaid nanny for many years.
