Maybe now that Kobe Bryant has retired from the NBA, he will have more time to work on his personal relationships. Namely, the one between he and his parents.
Apparently, it’s been three years since the future Hall of Famer has spoken to his parents, Joe and Pamela Bryant. Why, you ask? Well, according to ESPN, it all stems from the time they tried to sell his high school memorabilia without his consent. Since then, the relationship has been strained to say the least. “Our relationship is shit,” Bryant tells ESPN writer Ramona Shelburne. “I say [to them], ‘I’m going to buy you a very nice home, and the response is ‘That’s not good enough’?” he says. “Then you’re selling my shit?”
After selling a half million dollars worth of Kobe’s personal effects, the Bryants issued a statement that surely pissed him off even more.
“We regret our actions and statements related to the Kobe Bryant auction memorabilia. We apologize for any misunderstanding and unintended pain we may have caused our son and appreciate the financial support that he has provided to us over the years.”
Luckily, the ESPN article does state that the Black Mamba’s relationships with his sisters, Sharia and Shaya, is actually quite good. “They’re very smart, college-educated [women],” Kobe says. “I’m really proud of them. They were able to get their own jobs, get their own lives, take care of themselves. Now they have a better sense of self, of who they are as people, instead of being resentful because they were relying on me.
Man, money really can ruin relationships, but hopefully Kobe can work things out with his parents sooner than later.
Kylie Jenner (And Her Blanket) Come Out Of Hiding For Family Calvin Klein Ad
Kylie Jenner has finally surfaced folks … but her baby bump has not.. The lip kit mogul, who has been a virtual recluse since pregnancy rumors began swirling, finally came out of hiding to join her sisters for a special Calvin Klein campaign.
In the newly debuted images, the gorgeous brood seductively pose in the brand’s iconic underwear and jeans, lounging among quilted blankets … but Kylie it seems is tucked under a blanket in pretty much every photo.
Even when clothed Jenner can be seen with the red and white quilt conveniently covering her midsection.
And when the sisters are dressed in nothing but their Calvin’s … Jenner is not pictured at all.
News dropped in September that the 20-year-old was expecting a baby with her boyfriend rap star Travis Scott. No one in the family has confirmed reports, but we’re sure when Kylie finally makes the big reveal it will be in true Kardashian / Jenner fashion … on their reality show.
In the meantime fans can see Kylie and her blanket all over social media.
Kim shared Klein’s Spring 2018 “Our Family. #MYCALVINS” campaign on her Instagram page Monday with the caption: “Nothing better than working with my family! Honored to be shot alongside my sisters for the new CALVIN KLEIN UNDERWEAR & CALVIN KLEIN JEANS global campaign.”
In addition to the photo campaign, shot by photographer Willy Vanerdperre, the sisters are also featured in a video where they are laying down playing a game of Never Have I Ever. Kim admits she’s never had a tattoo, while Kendall admits she’s never been married. Peep the video below.
