Kobe Bryant has some words for Master P who recently suggested the Lakers superstar was a “phony.”

The rapper told TMZ cameras earlier this week that Bryant, who rushed to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas on Tuesday after Lamar Odom was found unconscious, was not a real friend to Odom who is currently fighting for his life.

“Goes to show when something happens to you everybody is his friend, everyone loves him. But is that true? I don’t think so. It’s like my wife and her lawyer sitting by my bedside if something happened to me,” P said. “I’m talking about Kobe.”

Percy Robert Miller, the rapper’s legal name, continued, “All this man [Odom] watned to do was play basketball. Kobe was his friend. Kobe like owns the team; he could’ve got the man back on the team. Even in that situation I think he was just searching for love. His biggest problem was where the people at where he showed love to, he has a big heart. It’s phony. If you my friend, if you cared about me that much, why you didn’t get him into training camp.”

In what appeared to be in response to P’s comments, Bryant tweeted:

But it didn’t end there. Miller still felt the need to get his point across, so he issued a full statement via social media titled: The Truth Hurts.

In the lengthy message, the rapper explained that he stopped dealing with Lamar years ago because Odom was hesitant to receive the help. P, who once mentored the ill athlete, went on to explain that when they did speak, the former Lakers player “complained about how everybody turned their backs on him, even his nba buddies.”

P wrote that he respects Kobe and he has no problem speaking with him OR the Kardashians face to face to discuss “the conversations that Lamar and I have had concerning him trying to get his life back together and getting back into the league.”

He added, “I’m not about entertaining no mess and I’m only speaking on this because I knew this brother … The truth hurts, even in Hollywood.”

Odom is currently in a coma and is surrounded by family and friends, including his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
