Vanessa Bryant, the lovely wife of NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant, is apparently tired of hearing people say the line from Young Money rapper, Drake’s song that says “You wasn’t with me shooting in the gym.” This line was is reference to the divorce settlement that Vanessa was set to receive early last year when her and Kobe decided to end their marriage. They married when she was only 18 years old and although he was in the NBA at the time, there was no pre-nup. Vanessa was awarded 1/2 of his enormous fortune, but as you know, they decided to reconcile and did not get divorced. Mrs. Bryant recently took to instagram to voice her feelings on the matter.
Read her statement below:
I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life. […]
I really wish people would stop THINK and then realize that they are being sucked into someone’s clear intention to monetize and gain attention off of our family’s heartache. This is real life. I hold down our home life so my husband can focus on his career. It’s a partnership.
Since my husband is isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.
