When Kobe Bryant’s divorce first hit the news, Sanaa Lathan made a very ignorant comment after some were saying that she was the cause for the breakup (Sanaa Lathan Says She Isn’t Smashing Kobe Bryant..Implies He Doesn’t Like Black Women).

Today, she apologized for Tweets, while trying to clarify why she was upset.

I probably shouldn’t have said that because I don’t discriminate when it comes to dating. I have dated all races and I believe you should be free to do whatever you want. But I was so annoyed because I was having such a great time at the concert and Kobe happen to be standing next to me, and then all of a sudden I was tied to his break-up.

That’s absurd, and I tweeted that in the moment, and I regret it. But to each its own. It’s just funny that if it’s written people believe it, and even though I have said I have nothing to do with him, people are still saying when the baby is due?

Someone still seems to be trying too hard to convince us she wasn’t tying to get with the Kobe System, but at least she recognized what a dumb thing she said.

  • Umm, please don’t pick and choose from her interview. Read the whole thing. Thanks

  • I don’t routinely keep up the athlete’s bull***t unless reading this blog counts. Anyway, from where I’m stiiting, she doesn’t owe an apology for saying what the available evidence confirms. Fifteen years in the public eye, not even before he was married, no holla for a sister!

  • Co-sign Kimd, and you right about that Regular Brotha. She is simply stating the obvious and shouldn’t apologize for it. The last sister he dated was Brandy and that was when he couldn’t even register to vote. Enough said…

  • “I have dated all races and I believe you should be free to do whatever you want.” is exactly why she should apologize… It was judgemental and was not real because she also dates outside her race… But I forgot its only ok for black women to do it, because, “black men been doing it all this time.” smh… He got married 10 years ago so how much “holla for a sista” could he have… plus he at least has love for minorities if that makes yall happy lol… and yes he got caught up, BUT the one chick he told the police to call about his ways in the bedroom was black… I’m black and my wife is black, with a Nigerian father, if our kids bring home somebody that isn’t black, I’m not gonna be mad or treat them any different because of the person they chose to be with and have feelings for

  • I feel she shouldn’t have to apologize, she pretty much told the truth, kobe doesn’t date black women.
