Kobe Bryant Feuding With Mom After She Auctioned Off His Belongings

You'd think money problems would not be an issue for someone making almost $30 million a year.

Sadly, basketball star Kobe Bryant and his mother are engaged in a bitter feud over money, according to TMZ.

Kobe is said to be upset that his mom, Pamela Bryant, recently took lots of his memorabilia — including his old jerseys, high school championship rings, and trophies — to an auction house.

Pamela claims that Kobe gave her the items, and now she has received a $450,000 advance on the items which she is using to buy a home in Nevada.

However, Kobe has informed the auction house that they can't sell the items because they belong to him.

Sources say Kobe and Pamela's issues arose because she wanted him to buy her a fancier house than he was willing to. He apparently offered to buy his parents a home in Las Vegas for much less than a million dollars, and they wanted something nicer.

Pamela is reportedly upset that the Lakers star spends big bucks on his mother-in-law, including moving her into multi-million dollar mansions.

However, Kobe feels he has more than taken care of his own parents, having given them millions and buying them homes and vehicles over the years.

This feud apparently has been building over time, dating back to when his parents weren't pleased that he refuesed to ask his wife, Vanessa, to sign a prenup.

On May 4, Kobe tweeted: 

When u give Give GIVE and they take Take TAKE at wat point do u draw a line in the sand? ?

Kobe make $27.8 million a year, which is the highest annual salary in the NBA.

Let's hope he and his mom can manage to call a time out on their feud.

 I would be beyond pissed off if I were him.  She is selling his memories because she is greedy.  I hope the auction house doesn't sell the items.  I would also no longer be supporting the parents.  They should be grateful for what they get and not expect more.

Why is HIS money supposed to be HER money? If he has already lavished expensive homes and cars on his parents through his personal success-when is it ok to end that? Shouldn't gifts be given-not demanded. Maybe his mom needs to get her own job and buy her own things. I would never expect to be supported by my children.
