I am glad they were able to come to a resolution. You never want to see kids fighting with their parents. You only have one mom and dad, you would want those relationships to be amicable.
Kobe’s mom was trying to auction off his memorabilia, because she was upset that the house he was about to buy her wasn’t as big as the one he bought his in-laws.
In the end it was Kobe’s parents who ended up apologizing.
The Kobe Bryant memorabilia saga has ended with an apology from the Los Angeles Lakers guard’s parents and a settlement that allows less than 10 percent of the items originally intended for sale to be auctioned.
“We regret our actions and statements related to the Kobe Bryant auction memorabilia,” said Joe and Pamela Bryant in the statement, provided by a publicist. “We apologize for any misunderstanding and unintended pain we have caused our son and appreciate the financial support he has provided over the years. We also apologize to Goldin Auctions for their inadvertent involvement in this matter and thank them for their assistance.”
There will still be some decent items for auction, so it seems like a fair resolution.
