Kobe Bryant Slaps Mom with Cease and Desist
Kobe Bryant and his mother are battling over her right to auction off some of his memorabilia...
According to reports Kobe's mom wanted to sell off some old high school jerseys and trophies, two Laker jerseys from the 2000 season and a pair championship rings Kobe had designed for his mom and dad, so she could buy herself a house in Las Vegas.
Once Kobe got wind of the sale he sent a cease and desist to the auction house and now they're in court.
In the court documents Kobe's mom says over the years she has asked repeatedly if Kobe wanted the items and if he did to please remove them from her house.
Kobe's mom says Kobe's wife Vanessa told her they didn't want the stuff explaining, "those items belong in the past."
That is until the auction was projected to bring in over $1 million.
After handing over the memorabilia Kobe's mom was given a $450,000 advance, which she used to purchase a house.
Now it's up to a judge to decide who the items actually belong to.
The next hearing is set for May 20.
