Kobe Byrant Was Shocked By Kanye’s Slavery Comments

Published

on

Future HOF and Oscar Winner Kobe Bryant spoke out about Kanye’s recent slavery comments.

The NBA legend spoke with high school students at We Rise LA over the weekend, an event dedicated to inspiring future generations. In a video posted by TMZ, Bryant gave his two cents about West’s opinions during a Q&A session.

“I’m sure [I felt] the way everybody else here in this room feels,” Bryant admitted when a student asked about his response to the slavery comment in particular. “‘The hell are you talking about?’ I think that was my reaction as is everybody else’s reaction.”

Bryant continued, “The thing about our country is that you have the right to say whatever it is that you want to say. That’s the beautiful part about living in a democracy. Conversely, you have to take the responses that come after that as well.”

The athlete explained his theory that entertainers like Ye are “always in a state of growth,” challenging themselves and frequently questioning  their own opinions. However, in this case, Bryant’s opinion is firm: “Completely disagree.”

Drake Wins Lawsuit Over Woman’s False Rape And Pregnancy Claims

Drake has won his lawsuit with the woman that made false pregnancy and rape allegations against him in 2017. Layla Lace met Drake during last year’s Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England, where he claimed they had consensual sex.

According to TMZ, Drizzy won his case and Lace is prohibited from using media to assert the claims. Manchester police also investigated, once Lace made the claims and could not find any evidence.

Drake claimed that when he stopped responding to subsequent messages, she allegedly began threatening to leak their correspondence, publicly claimed he had impregnated her, accused him of rape, and demanded “millions of dollars” in exchange for silence. Drake is reportedly suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.

The suit claimed Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam … “There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall.”

Celebrity attorney Larry Stein, who’s repping Drake, tells TMZ … “The filing made by Drake against Layla Lace has been resolved, with Layla avoiding going to trial by agreeing to a stipulated judgment which prohibits her from repeating past statements she made against Drake.  Drake and his team are satisfied with this outcome and while Drake appreciates the support he has received, he asks that his fans and the media allow both parties to move on with their lives”
