This really has nothing to do with memorabilia and everything to do with Vanessa Bryant. Kobe’s parents, fairly or not believe Kobe treats her and her family better than them.
The way they are showing their anger is by trying to sell his stuff. It is a bit petty, but they aren’t backing down from it.
Kobe’s mom and dad — Pamela and Joe — both filed sworn declarations in the legal dispute between Kobe and Goldin Auctions, the auction house planning to sell off the valuable stuff … insisting Kobe willingly gave his mother the items in question … and it’s her right to sell them.
According to Kobe’s dad, Kobe gave his mother the memorabilia over the years, telling her, “Here mom, these are for you.” Kobe’s mom insists she never took anything from him without permission.
Kobe’s parents should try to settle their differences with their son behind the scenes, not in court.
