Kobe Bryant and his parents, Joe and Pamela Bryant

Kobe Bryant’s wife and kids were at the Staples Center to see his 60-point farewell game this month, but his parents Joe and Pamela Bryant were noticeably absent. And now we know why.

 The NBA legend hasn’t spoken to them in thee years – all because they tried to auction off some of his high school memorabilia behind his back.


Kobe hasn’t spoken to his parents in nearly three years. Not since 2013, when they tried to auction off his high school memorabilia without his consent.
