UNCASVILLE, CONNECTICUT - MAY 15: Vanessa Bryant speaks on behalf of Class of 2020 inductee, Kobe Bryant during the 2021 Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony at Mohegan Sun Arena on May 15, 2021 in Uncasville, Connecticut. Kobe Bryant tragically died in a California helicopter crash on Jan 26, 2020.

Vanessa Bryant has settled the lawsuit her mother filed against her over financial support.  Sofia Laine claimed she was Vanessa’s longtime personal assistant and nanny and was promised to be cared for for the rest of her life.  In Sofia’s claim, it said, “Unfortunately, Kobe Bryant’s promises did not see the light of day as he is now deceased, and Vanessa Bryant took each and every step she could to void and cancel all of Kobe Bryant’s promises made to [Laine]. Vanessa Bryant did not intend to honor any of the Bryants’ representations, agreements, and promises at any stage.”  Vanessa accused her mother of “continuing to try and find ways to extort a financial windfall from our family.”  The amount the lawsuit has been settled for has not been revealed.
