Sofia Laine, the mother of Vanessa Bryant, has opened up about her relationship with her daughter.
In a tell-all interview set to air today, Laine claimed she had a fall with her daughter after her husband Kobe Bryant’s death and that led to Vanessa allegedly kicking her out of the family home.
The interview which was done in Spanish with David Valadez of Univision, will reportedly air on Univision’s El Gordo Y La Flaca at 4 p.m. local time.
According to Bossip, Laine claimed that things between her and daughter got so bad in recent months that she was allegedly sent packing and had her car taken away by Bryant. She recalled her daughter allegedly telling her, “You need to leave my house and give me my car.”
A trailer posted to Valadez’s Instagram page showed Laine visibly crying as she detailed the events that have allegedly happened since Kobe Bryant’s death.
The claims have left many fans shocked because Sofia Laine and Vanessa Bryant seemed to have a good relationship.
When Kobe died in a helicopter crash alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, it was reported that Laine was with Bryant as she grieved the loss of the NBA star, whom she married in 2001.
A source told Us Weekly at the time that Bryant “is incredibly close to her mom and her mom has been her rock throughout the past few weeks. Her mom is always with her and the girls [referencing daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 1] and she’s been keeping Vanessa strong and she’s the weight of her support system.”
