Sofia Laine, mother to Vanessa Bryant, recently sat down for an interview where she claims she’s been kicked out of the Bryant home.
In an interview that is set to air on Univision’s “El Gordo Y La Flaca”, Sofia Laine claims that her relationship with her daughter is on the rocks. The spanish-speaking grandmother alleged in the teaser for the interview that Vanessa not only told her to leave their home, but she also repossessed her car. Sofia also confirmed that Kobe has been laid to rest in a private cemetery before shedding tears over Vanessa’s alleged betrayal.
Kobe’s widow allegedly told Sofia, “You need to leave my house and give me my car.”
The full feature will air on Monday, but a preview was shared to Instagram. Here it is:
This revelation from Sofia will be shocking to friends and fans of the Bryant family considering that Vanessa and her mom have always seemed close. After the helicopter crash that claimed Kobe and Gianna’s lives back in January, it was reported that Vanessa and her mom grew even closer.
The new details from Vanessa Bryant’s mother is another tragic pitfall for the family as the world still continues to mourn the death of both Kobe and his daughter Gianna. Back in February, Vanessa sued Island Express Helicopters; the company that was responsible for the fatal incident.
According to PEOPLE, the 38-year-old filed a wrongful death suit against the company claiming that the pilot, Ara Zobayan who conducted the flight during the tragic Calabasas plane crash, “failed to properly monitor and assess the weather prior to takeoff.” In addition, the suit also detailed that the pilot “failed to abort the flight when he knew of the cloudy conditions” and “failed to properly and safely operate the helicopter resulting in a crash.”
Island Express Helicopters responded back arguing that Kobe, 41, and Gianna, only 13 at the time of the fatal crash, “had actual knowledge of all of the circumstances, particular dangers, and an appreciation of the risks involved and the magnitude thereof of flying in the helicopter on Jan. 26”.
The company’s attorney’s had the nerve to state that the late father and daughter were aware of the potential risks prior to boarding the flight and want the family to “voluntarily assume the risk of the accident, injury, and damages.”
Prayers up for Vanessa and the family during this difficult time.
