It could be an interesting Mother's Day this year for Kobe Bryant and his mom!
Lawyers for the basketball player have requested that an auction house in New Jersey immediately stops the sale of the Kobe Bryant Collection, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Goldin Auctions received the collection, which consists of memorabilia of Bryant that dates back to his high-school days and early years with the L.A. Lakers, from Kobe’s mother, Pamela Bryant. However, Kobe claims that the items were not hers to sell, while she claims that her son told her that he no longer wanted the items. This is a sticky situation to say the least.
"I confronted her about her false statement that I had given my memorabilia to her," Bryant wrote in a filing Wednesday at the U.S District Court in Camden, N.J., according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I said to her, 'Mom, you know I never told you that you could have the memorabilia.'
