Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Defends Wife, Vanessa, on Twitter
Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa have been married since 2000, and even though their relationship has been turbulent, the two remain together. Vanessa did file for a divorce from Kobe in 2011, but she dismissed it earlier this month.
The Bryants are now living as a happy couple, but they are still irritated by rapper Drake and a line in his song “Stay Schemin.’” The song essentially states that Vanessa does not deserve the money from the divorce as she, “wasn’t with me shootin’ in the gym.”
The Los Angeles Times reports Bryant’s reaction to a fans’ tweet and Vanessa’s response to the criticism directed towards her.
On Monday morning, after Bryant tweeted about he and his wife drinking some coffee and tea, a fan replied saying, “but…..
Bryant immediately defended his wife.
“no, she wasn’t. She was busy raising our kids
#nonanny #respectmothers,” Bryant posted to his Twitter account.
Vanessa gave her take on the song’s lyrics in early January and expressed her frustration with Drake and his choice of words. Even though Vanessa said Drake’s manager apologized to the Bryants, it is clear she is not happy about being ridiculed by the rapper and fans.
