Lakers News: Bryant’s Parents Say Kobe Lied About Memorabilia Claims

Kobe BryantKobe Bryant is dealing with a very serious Achilles injury, but that is not the only thing he is worrying about this off-season.

Bryant and his mother, Pamela, are battling it out in court over memorabilia which spans Kobe’s entire basketball career. Kobe is trying to stop his mother from selling his merchandise as he insisted she never got permission to do so. The collection includes awards, game worn jerseys and other valuable items.

However, Mark Medina writes that Kobe’s mother and father claim that their son and his wife lied in their statements regarding the memorabilia.

In a declaration filed in federal court in Camden Monday, Pamela insisted sworn statements from Kobe and his wife, Vanessa, “contained many false statements.” That included Kobe’s account of a May 2 phone conversation, in which she allegedly agreed he had never told her she could have his belongings.

Pamela denies the May 2 conversation, adding another interesting turn in this mother and son court issue. Kobe’s father, Joe, and his grandmother, Mildred Cox, are supporting Pamela and say Kobe and Vanessa never had interest in the collection. His father claims that Kobe did not want to take the memorabilia and bring it to his home in California.

This case seems like it will drag on for quite some time and will add more tension to an already busy summer for Kobe Bryant.
