According to TMZ, Lakers’ Kobe Bryant bought his mother-in-law a $3M mansion but will not buy his own parents a house. This is during the feud between Kobe and his mother who is trying to sell his high school & early NBA memorabilia and other items that are worth $1.5M.
Sources connected with the Bryant family tell TMZ … the dispute between mother and son erupted over real estate. We’re told Kobe offered to buy his parents a “nice house” in Vegas for significantly less than a million bucks, but they wanted something bigger and more extravagant and Kobe drew a line in the sand and refused to up the ante.
Our sources say Pamela was infuriated and believed Kobe was shortchanging them, especially compared to what he does for Vanessa’s mom, Sofia Laine. Kobe put Sofia up in a $3.2 million house in Newport Beach, CA, which sold recently. After the sale, Kobe moved Sofia to another multi-million dollar mansion nearby.
From Kobe’s perspective, our sources say he’s really upset because he believes he’s stepped up for years, by giving his parents millions of dollars and buying them homes and cars.
This feud has been brewing for years … dating back to when Kobe’s parents went ballistic when he married Vanessa without a prenup.
I see his point but come on dude, you have enough savings that your great great great great great grandkids will not have to work.
