Kobe Bryant's Mother Pam Was Recently Seen for the 1st Time since His Passing - Meet the Woman Who Raised the Legend
Kobe Bryant and his mother had a complicated relationship stemming from multiple misunderstandings, which led to not a lot of people knowing much about the NBA legend's parents. Now, she was spotted out for the first time since Kobe and Gianna's passing.
Kobe Bryant and his mother had a complicated relationship following her disapproval of his marriage to Vanessa. At the time, his parents claimed that he was "too young" to get married, especially since his career had just started.
Through the years, they've had ups and downs, but following Kobe and Gianna's passing, Pam Bryant was seen looking somber as she stepped out to run errands in Las Vegas a couple of days after the fatal helicopter crash.
Despite their rocky relationship, Pam and Joe Bryant are devastated by the loss of their son and grandchild.
PAM'S PUBLIC FEUD WITH KOBE
Through the years, not a lot was known of their relationship until 2013, when a public fight between Kobe and his mother went viral. It turns out, she attempted to auction off items from Kobe's high school and professional career, which the baller claimed through his lawyer, she was not authorized to do.
It turns out, Pamela Bryant auctioned off the items to purchase her new home in Nevada. The items were allegedly given to her by Kobe at a time, which was meant for her own keeping.
Ultimately, Kobe reached a settlement with the auction house and it is unclear whether or not he's spoken to his mother since their dispute.
THE FAMILY'S HEARTBREAK
Despite their rocky relationship, Pam and Joe Bryant are devastated by the loss of their son and grandchild. Neighbors have been rallying to support the Vegas residents, but Pam is not ready to speak up just yet.
Many of their neighbors have been bringing food and flowers to the couple, but when they were asked if they had anything to say, a heartbroken Mrs. Bryant said: "not right now."
PRIVATELY MOURNING KOBE AND GIANNA
Meanwhile, a man was interviewed outside Kobe's sister Sharia's home, revealing how they do not plan to speak up anytime soon as they are devastated.
"Right now they have nothing to say but they are obviously heartbroken. There will not be any comments from the family right away."
HER RECENT SIGHTING
Pam was recently seen out for the first time since Kobe and Gianna's deaths, visiting a local Target to run errands before staying at a salon for hours. The entire time she was out, she did not speak up and appeared to be in a somber mood.
Kobe and Gianna Bryant were killed alongside seven other people when their helicopter crashed in Calabasas as they were on the way to the Mamba Basketball Academy in Thousand Oaks California, where Bryant was set to coach and his daughter, was set to play.
