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.

Wait a minute. Kobe has the funds to purchase $4 million dollar rings for a basic Mexican broad, but can't help his mother out with a home?

As soon as Kobe's Wife heard about the amount the items where selling for, i bet you're bottom dollar that she whispered in her husbands ear! Good for Mom that she got that advance to get her home. Obviously, she did not want here son's money or asked for any to get help.

Now I'm not sure whether he's bought momma a house in the past, but he bought Vanessa's momma a house back when he didn't rape that white girl, lol. This shit just sounds like more pettiness between Kobe and his family. Sounds like it's about a whole lot more than old high school shit though. Shame..

wow kobe should have bought his mama a house off top and taken care of that regardless!! if they kobe and vanesssa said they didnt want the stuff then she should have just sold it and not said anything since its not theirs anymore. sheesh.

and who cares if his wife is mexican would it been better if he bought his wife a ring if she was black? yall so racist up in here.

12:43, Shut your dumb ass up. The point is: This nigga Kobe bought his wife a $4 million "I'm sorry for cheating and getting caught" ring, but obviously couldn't afford his own mother a home. If true, he's on some straight bullshit.

What I want to know THIS...WHERE is all of this 'memorabilia' located at??? If it's in Kobe's custody, then of course his mother can't sell it but if its stuff that's cluttering up where she lives at now, then why CAN'T she sell it??? If he wasn't thinking about it enough to store all that stuff in one of the rooms in his mansion that he ain't using then he needs to let his mother do what she wants to do with it.

See this shit, BUT HIS MOTHER IN LAW is in a fucking MANSION. His FATHER IN LAW & BROTHER IN LAW all own businesses courtesy of:
you guessed it KOBE. When Kobe was gonna get a divorce he was gonna sign over the Mansion to his mother in law. How you gonna take care of SOMEONE ELSE’S MOTHER and not yours. That shit just doesn’t register to me. I don’t GIVE A FUCK what your Mother did. She’s gave ya crusty ass life. You at least owe her respect & comfort. I ain’t saying become best friends. Many Black Men in particular abandon their families and kiss their wife’s family’s asses, which is odd. This is some straight up BULLSHIT. I believe though that He’s doing this cause She’s still with Jelly Bean and Jelly Bean don’t talk to Kobe cause he didn’t want Kobe to Marry so young
and to that Mexican who ain’t have a pot to piss in nor a window to throw it out of. He don’t want Jelly Bean to make a dollar…..

I read the headline and thought for a minute this nigga was pulling a Dez Bryant. But I'm gonna roll with Bee Gee on this one. This shit sounds like there is a lot more going on between them than just sale of some memorabilia. Shit should never deteriorate between you and mom dukes to the point where you gotta go to court. I dont give a fuck who you are!! Its never a good look to have to sue your momma for any damn thing!

Anonymous said...

this is not a good look for kobe. you never brought your mother a house. i don't care what else is going on. he sounds like he has issues. to even bring this to court, he has issues. i never liked kobe anyway. he's a walking STD

Kobe has always had a problem with his parents. They was trying to protect him from groupies but he didn't want to hear it. It has only been a few years since they started speaking to each other. during that time Kobe had just started the NBA, with some help from his father, and they was just trying to protect him and his money. But the problem was that Kobe was only a child going into a grown up world. He got hooked on an under age girl and said damn my family. This is really a case where " I got money , I don't need you". He wants to be mommy and daddy's baby and also be the adult in his house hold. The brother really got some serious problems.

He left if with his mom...she owns it...if he can buy a house for his wife's mother...he can buy one for the women who pushed his stanky rapist ass out of her cooch.

Kobe, Kobe, Kobe.....smh.

Bee Gee said...

The sad thing is that a nigga couldn't just pick up the phone and say "momma don't sell it, but here's what we gone do to getchu the house out there in Vegas"

It's obvious that this family has never gotten past Vanessa bumrushin' the set. We all know that Momma don't love them hoes and Kobe wifed up the first one he ran into after leaving the nest. The hurt that something like that causes and the strain that it can put on relationships is sometimes irreparable. That might be the case here, but damn, homie. Now you got momma in the paper on some bullshit cuz you got the apron on and Vanessa runs EVERYTHING. That nigga aint been the king of his domain since he didn't rape that white girl..

So all of you'll are Kobe's financial consultants or accountants?? Everyone always talking about what someone should do with THEIR money. You cant sit here and act like there arent foolish parents out there who view their athlete children as cash cows. Im pretty sure your parents have contemplated doing or have done something foolish with large sums of money. Maybe Kobe just tryna protect his mother from herself. A $1M home in Vegas? That dont even sound like a smart purchase. Not saying this is the case but dont compare that man's financials and criticize.

Wow...Dirty Dick Kobe serving moms with court documents...that's all I can say is wow...don't want to be anywhere near him when Karma comes back.

Smh. We should never allow the cares of the World to overshadow the things that are most important—serving God through serving people, especially the people in our own families.
**
The Bible says, "Honor your father and mother" with a promise—"that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth" (Ephesians 6:2-3). Deuteronomy 5:16 tells us to honor our parents so that we may live long and so things will go well with us. No age limit is specified, which leads me to believe that as long as our parents are alive, we should honor them. God Don't Like Ugly..We Reap What You Sow!

@1:30..._Please read and comprehend....the mother purchased the home with the advance payment. The items are worth a million...and if the mother wanted a million dollar home that is her business she is not asking Kobe for a dime, but please remember he paid off his mother and father in law bankruptcy debt prior to marrying their daughter and purchase the mother-in-law a home and the father a business!!!

Everyday we read about males who are not properly socialized and one of the main reasons is stated above.

It's good to have a male in the home, but since time in memoriam, socialization has been the job of the woman.

Women complain bitterly about men, yet they raise sons to behave in such a way that they would not for themselves nor their daughters.

There are too many stories around town about Kobe; his treatment of sales people is horrendous. Kobe is so full of himself and will probably realize too late that his attitude is wrong. He needs a serious Human reality check.

Anonymous said...

I'm not excusing bad behavior, but the old saying goes:

"A son is a son 'til he takes a wife;
but a daughter is a daughter all her life."

Of course Kobe's wife is going to look out for her family! As for Kobe, I'm with his Mom on this one. If she repeatedly asked him if he wanted those things and he said no, then by the law of possession those things are hers. They were in her house at the time she brought them to be auctioned.

Kobe=ZERO, MOM WINS!

Kobe is an asshole...I'm not suprised by all this.

Anonymous said...

well, this is the way it goes. people leave home and leave the trash that they don't want or care about anymore. "come get your stuff, come get your stuff or i'm going to throw it out" but they never do get their stuff.

turns out that the trash is actually treasure, now it's all "i want my stuff" and whatnot.

if he said he didn't want the stuff, or if he abandoned the stuff, it's not his anymore.

Kobe left all this stuff behind at his mom's crib. She asked Kobe if he wanted these items and he said no. She then proceeded to put the items in a $1500 a month storage unit. When news of the auction hit the media, Kobe got upset and wanted his shit back. Along with the jerseys etc. are a 2000 championship ring and a 1998 all-star ring.

Anonymous said...

@2:37 i would understand him leaving behind shirts and such, but why wouldn't he want his rings?

ThatBKChick said...

"The fact that moms is auctioning off the Championship rings he had made for his parents" speaks mountains in itself? If he gave it to them as gifts, then she is damned well pleased to do wth she wants with the stuff!

Like BeeGee and others said, there is something deeper than this going on. I personally would never sell off my Son's first prized championship rings.....He has cut is momma deep for her to do this.....Kobe is a punk azz nicca! PERIOD!

Kobe is nothing but a nigga with money. Stupid ass coon.

If he wants his stuff back then he needs to go to the auction and bid on his stuff or just do a OJ style and roll up there and steal your stuff back. LOL. Kobe is only doing this because his team mates are probably clowning him right now.

******************************

You sound a bumb ass fool counting this man's money. I know you broke. How are you going to say what, how, and where Kobe should spend his money?? When Kobe got married his mother and him had a falling out (according to blogs) because his mom and dad didn't like Vanessa. They trashtalked about Vanessa for years and he didn't invite them to the wedding.

Vanessa is his new family. You don't know what his mom did or said to him then. You need to worry about why you're not worth half a billion dollars like he is and stop worrying about his money. He DOES NOT have to buy his mother a house..PERIOD.

Kobe should back up and chill for a while. There are some battles you just can't win and this is one of those battles. Let momma keep her house and the money and go on about your life. Be smart, you can win the battle but lose the war. To the world at large, you're not looking too good right now!

Anonymous said...

I don't understand why Kobe's mom want to sell his stuff. Her son is no ordinary man. He's a famous NBA star and future hall of famer. Someone in her position should want to keep her son's awards, trophies, rings on the mantel in scrap books, etc. I'm also thinking Kobe left it behind for this very reason. This is not ordinary trash. I don't understand his mom. I do agree with others that he shouldn't take his mother to court.

I ride with Kobe on this one.
Kobe's mom wanted another house. He offered her 250,000 she said NO. She wanted 450,000.
So she is pissed and selling HIS things!!!!
How many houses does mommy need?????Kobe has supported his whole GREEDY family for the pass 17 years.

It is his MONEY and HIS property.

Shame on his mother!!!

Can your family sell the things you leave behind when you move out? Kobe Bryant’s mother thinks so, but the NBA superstar disagrees and now the two are locked in a high-profile, high-stakes court battle over some of his memorabilia.
According to court papers filed Thursday in U.S. District Court, Goldin Auctions of Berlin, New Jersey, struck a deal with Pamela Bryant to sell some of her son’s items from his early days with the Los Angeles Lakers as well as his high school career in Pennsylvania. he long long list includes the star's jerseys, practice gear, and sweatsuits from Lower Merion High School, Kobe's varsity letters, a trophy for outstanding player he received in 1995 at an Addidas ABCD basketball camp, a signed basketball from the 2000 NBA Championship game, as well as rings from his 1996 Pennsylvania high schoool championship game, one from the NBA All-Star game, and a pair of rings that the Lakers had made for his parents to mark the 2000 NBA championship game.
A source close the legendary player, however, told "omg! Insider" co-anchor Kevin Frazier that the real reason behind the auction is a family dispute over a second home that his mother wants to purchase. "Bryant has given his parent millions of dollars in financial assistance throughout his 17-year career. They decided to sell his high school memorabillia without his consent to purchase an additional home." According to the source, when Bryant balked at buying a larger home then initially agreed upon, his mother struck the deal to sell his memorabilia. ESPN is reporting that the 34-year-old offered his mother $250,000 towards the purchase of a home in Nevada but she refused, instead asking for $450,000.
Bryant thought the matter was on hold until he discovered that his personal items were hours away from being auctioned off. At that point his attorneys sent a cease and desist letter to the auction company, requesting that the sale be called off and the items returned to Bryant. Goldin's lawyers claim that the goods belonged to Pamela Bryant, that Kobe had no interest in them, and that all of the memorabilia was moved to a storage facility in New Jersey.
Another possible reason Pamela might be taking this battle to court with her son is because the owner of the auction house, Kenneth Goldin, has already giver her a cash advance of $450,000 as well as put money into advertising for the auction.

I wouldn't have been as blunt and curt as 11:54,12:14 if you would have mentioned trophies, awards, a framed college degree you earned or scrap book ofmemorabilia. No, you come up with something so ridiculous as a bedroom set. Get real. Suck it up, like 12:14 said and get back to work before you have to go to the goodwill and find that bedroom set and move it back to your mom's for you to sleep in because you lost your job.

I see Vanesa's fingerprints all over this. Trust and believe her mama ain't on no budgetary restrictions. She lives in a multi million dollar mansion. Google it. And this stunt coon is fighting with his mama about a house.

This nigger is unfucking believable. Yes the word fits this time. Vanessa owns his nuts now anyway, because after she floated that trial divorce that had him signing over cars houses etc., this nigger is no longer the plantation owner, he is probably the help now. His mama need to bake them hoes a pie like that woman in the HELP. LOL

Wait til Vanessa is really ready to dump his ass for good, he may find himself back at moms crib. Cause Vanessa and her mama steady plotting. WATCH!
