The battle for the Bryant family heats up as Vanessa’s mother Sofia Laine reacts to her daughter’s recent claim that she is not the family’s nanny

Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa, and her mother have not gotten along well since his death in a helicopter crash earlier this year

A court document confirms that Laine is suing Bryant for financial aid, claiming she worked for the famous family as a “longtime personal assistant and nanny” for no pay

Vanessa hit back, telling people in a statement, “In reality, she only babysat my older girls occasionally when they were toddlers. 10 years ago our children were full-time students and athletes, and I had no other child until 2016. Your claims are obviously wrong, but I kept trying to clarify with my mother “

Well, TMZ reports Laine replied to Vanessa by saying, “First off, I want to say that I don’t enjoy spreading our family grievances in public”

She continued, “Although I filed a lawsuit, I haven’t made any public comments in the hope that the trial will go ahead without the advertising, hurtful as it is. I didn’t and don’t want this”

Lane insisted, “I just wanted what I worked for Vanessa tried, despite everything that was promised and done for her and the family, to break all ties and renounce all commitments and agreements”

“Why should she do this to her own mother?” She asked, “I am so disappointed, hurt, and hurt so much that I had no choice but to file a lawsuit I’m almost 70 years old, my health is deteriorating and my own daughter is doing this to me? “

Speaking directly to Vanessa’s statement that Sofia occasionally babysat but was never a nanny, Sofia said, “[Vanessa] has designed and enforced an extremely strict schedule for looking after my grandchildren 24/7. It’s just ridiculous, that she would deny it “

According to the lawsuit, Laine alleges Kobe “promised” to take care of her “for the rest of her life”

“Unfortunately, Kobe Bryant’s promises did not see the light of day since he is now deceased, and Vanessa Bryant took every possible step to invalidate and nullify all of Kobe Bryant’s promises to [Laine] At no point did Vanessa Bryant intend to keep the Bryants’ representations, agreements, and promises, ”the lawsuit states

In response to the allegations, Vanessa accuses her mother of “continuing to try to find ways to blackmail our family into financial collapse”

In a statement to People magazine, the mother of four said, “I’ve supported her for nearly 20 years, and she wasn’t my or Kobe’s personal assistant or nanny. I’ve always been a home mom , and my husband and I were the full-time carers for our daughters “

“For almost two decades we made sure that my mother lived for free in our nearby houses because she claimed that after her divorce she had no more money to buy her own house,” Vanessa continued ” My husband and I found it best when she did not live in our house. She watched our girls from time to time, just like most grandparents. She did not bother with business matters or expenses. “

She later accused Sofia of using intermediaries to demand “$ 5 million, a house and a Mercedes SUV. She continued,” Because I did not give in to her hurtful threats and demands for money, she has gotten out of hand and is doing false and absurd claims “
